Lil Nas X Apologizes After Joking About Gender-Affirming Surgery


Lil Nas X is no stranger to controversy. The musician has recently come under fire for a selfie he posted on Twitter. However, the post is now deleted, due to its controversial caption. In the post, Lil Nas X wears a wig along with a form-fitting dress. The artist dons makeup and bears a very feminine style. For the brief period, it was up, people were praising him for his looks. However, his caption led to outrage as it stated: "The surgery was a success." Heart emojis follow the caption. Many people within the LGBTQIA community are taking offense to Lil Nas' recent post, as they believe he is mocking the seriousness of gender-reassignment surgery.

Almost immediately after the backlash, Lil Nas X deleted the post and issued an apology. In his apology, he acknowledges that the way he handled the initial backlash was in anger. He states that his anger is not cool and that he has a lot of love for the communities he unwittingly offended. Still, fans are not entirely happy with his apology either. Many people are taking to his social media to talk about how inauthentic his apology seems. And in true Lil Nas X form, he is clapping back at those attacking his sincerity.

Lil Nas X Explains His Handling Of The Situation

After Lil Nas X tweeted his apology, a fan spoke up about how they felt about his apology. In response to the fan, Nas simply states: "Girl eat my a**." His response is also getting him into hot water, as the musician seemingly has a hidden talent: putting his foot in his mouth. Regardless of the outrage, many fans are taking his side. Many believe that the outrage is simply part of the ongoing trend of canceling celebrities. Even members of the LGBT community are chiming in to say that they did not feel offended by the artist's post.

This is not the first time Lil Nas has stirred the pot by posting pictures of himself, either. Back in 2021, he got a lot of media attention by posting a picture where he was seemingly pregnant. The post was intended as a joke. However, many people felt like he was making light of the seriousness of pregnancy. While it seems like he should have learned his lesson, it appears he can't help himself from goofing around. Stay tuned to see if he will choose to apologize for his response toward critics.
