Lil Nas X responds to Nick Young saying Boosie's homophobic rant was "freedom of speech."
It isn't a coincidence a bunch of rappers and entertainers are showing their true colors, spreading homophobic messages this week while Lil Nas X, a gay artist, has the top trending song in the country. While some of the loudest haters, including DaBaby and T.I., are chalking up their homophobia to "freedom of speech," they seemingly don't understand the real weight of their words, prompting Lil Nas X to jump into the conversation.
While he was never mentioned during DaBaby's disgusting rant at Rolling Loud, T.I. and Boosie Badazz have mentioned the rapper during the aftermath of the controversy, with Boosie calling him a homophobic slur and threatening to beat up the artist if he ever performed naked, as he has been teasing. On Thursday morning, LNX trolled Boosie and T.I. by "responding" to their hateful messages, luring them in and driving them to the "INDUSTRY BABY" music video, but he's officially come through with another tweet, directly replying to Boosie and Nick Young, who co-signed the rapper's remarks.
"Facts, freedom of speech," wrote Nick Young on a video of Boosie calling Lil Nas a homophobic slur. "A n***a saying he will 'beat my f***t ass' is not what we what we meant by freedom of speech," responded LNX. He also retweeted a fan's post, which reads, "Bro it’s so fascinating to watch people retreat to very similar language as racists when it comes to being homophobic."
