Lil Nas X Effortlessly Responds to Boosie's Homophobic Comments

Lil Nas X is still the king of being unbothered! 

In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club radio show, controversial rapper Boosie Badazz had a lot to say about the 22-year-old, Grammy-winning "Industry Baby" rapper and Out cover star.

"I gotta speak up because as far as straight people in the world, you don’t have any opinion no more on sexuality. Everything is harm," Boosie said when asked by The Breakfast Club host to clarify past homophobic comments he made about Lil Nas X's live, televised performances, where he claimed that if he saw X perform naked at an awards show, he’d "drag his a** offstage and beat his a**."

"If you say anything — 'I’m straight, I like women' — it's vulgar to, you know," he continued. "You can’t brag on really smashing or your sexuality no more. It’s ran by LGBTQ [people]."

"Who love these rappers? The kids," Boosie then said, repeating the same old tired accusation that out-and-proud queer people are pushing the ~*gay agenda*~ on the unsuspecting masses of young folks. "If you make every rapper go with this...you grab that generation. I loved every rapper when I was little, you know? I tried to copy what they did. It’s a new day now, and I feel like they're pushing it on our kids."

As expected, Boosie's homophobia didn't go over too well and it even garnered a response from X himself. 

"Wow...this is insane," X said, directly responding to a video clip of Boosie's interview on Twitter.

Instead of letting the hate get to him, though, X took it as the perfect opportunity to plug his unapologetically queer AF music video with fellow MC Jack Harlow. "Almost as insane as my new single 'Industry Baby' which is out now!"

"The sh*t y’all say about me would drive me crazy if I didn’t already love myself," X said in a follow-up tweet. 

While X is a wiz at trolling the haters, it's unfortunate that during probably one of the best years of his career so far, he still has to contend with so much homophobic hate from people online and IRL.

But at least we know X can hold his own! And for that reason, we'll always stan!
