Lil Nas X Claps Back At Hater Who Criticizes His BET Awards Performance

Lil Nas X ended Pride Month with a blast!

The rapper paid tribute to Michael Jackson’s hit song “Remember the Time” when he performed “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” at the awards ceremony.

And the best part of his set was when he shared a long passionate kiss with one of his dancers.

The kiss was so incredible that the “Old Town Road” rapper got a standing ovation from Attitude star Mj Rodriguez and a few other celebrities.

Plus, Diddy gave him a sweet shout-out on Twitter.

The only person who didn’t seem to like it was this Twitter user who felt that Lil Nas X’s performance disrespected African culture.

So the rapper took some time out of his day to lighten up his hater. “You all like to pretend that homosexuality doesn’t exist in African culture,” he replied.
