Lil Nas X came out as a member of the LGBTQ community on the last day of Pride Month, and since its 2019 that should be the end of the story.
While many fans expressed their support for the viral sensation, some took the opportunity to sling around homophobic jokes about him and his viral hit, Old Town Road.
In true Lil Nas fashion, he laughed off the hate in a series of tweets.
Just cuz im gay dont mean im not straight, he wrote on Tuesday.

One of the most viral, negative comments came from fellow rapper Boosie Badazz.
WELL NOW U KNOW WHAT HE WAS RIDING ON THE OLD TOWN ROAD, he commented on Lil Nas coming-out post, along with an eggplant emoji.
This earned Boosie a wave of criticism from Lil Nas fanbase. Many were quick to remind him that Old Town Road has been on the Billboard charts for months now, while none of Boosies songs have.
