On Saturday (October 23), Lil Nas X decided to set his sights on Boosie Badazz and claim they had a collaboration was on the way.
October 23, 2021 Unsurprisingly, both Boosie Badazz and Lil Nas Xbecame trending Twitter topics, while the inflammatory tweet was eventually removed for violating Twitter policies. In true Lil Nas X fashion, he indirectly responded to the controversy with a healthy dose of humor. I am truly saddened, he said. I have never been so mortified in my life. I cant believe Disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire October. Of course, this is nothing new for Lil Nas X. Since coming out in June 2019, hes faced discrimination, blatant hate and ridicule for identifying as gay. But Lil Nas X, who was recently named The Trevor Projects Suicide Prevention Advocate of the Year, soldiers on and tries to fight bigotry with advocacy. i am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life. i cant believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october. MONTERO (@LilNasX) October 23, 2021 While accepting The Trevor Project honor in September, he used his platform to stand up for the LGBTQ+ youth. Discrimination around sexuality and gender identity is still very real, and our community deserves to feel supported and totally free to be themselves. I often get messages from fans telling me about their struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts. It made me realize that this was something bigger than myself. If using my voice and expressing myself in my music can help even one kid out there who feels alone, then it was all worth it.
