Lil Nas X Responds To Joyner Lucas Complaining About Children Seeing “Montero” Music Video

After twerking on the Devil in his MV, LNX has responses for politicians, preachers, and pundits too.

Montero “Lil Nas X” Hill is currently the talk of the internet. The 21-year-old rapper/singer shocked a lot of people when he dropped his “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” video last week.

The visuals feature religious and mythological imagery, including a scene where LNX performed a lap dance on the devil in hell. He followed up the MV with even more controversy by presenting unofficial redesigned Nike sneakers called “Satan Shoes.”

Several conservatives pundits and politicians took to Twitter to express their outrage over the Lil Nas X video and the MSCHF collaborative footwear. “Devil’s Work” emcee Joyner Lucas shared his thoughts on the platform as well.

“That @LilNasX video is wild but as [an] artist he doing everything he supposed to do. Creating viral moments, making people talk, and creating content he already knew you [were] going to react to. It’s a formula guaranteed to work. I doubt he actually worships the devil,” posted Lucas.

The Massachusetts representative added, “I think the biggest problem for me is the fact he [doesn’t] understand ‘Old Town Road’ is every [kid’s] anthem. Children love him for that record. They tuned in and subscribed to his channels. So with no disclaimer he just dropped some left-field ish and all our kids seen it. Smh.”

In response, Lil Nas quote-tweeted Lucas and pointed out that his 14x-Platinum single “Old Town Road” contained adult-centered lyrics too. The Georgia native wrote, “I literally sing about lean and adultery in ‘Old Town Road.’ U decided to let your child listen. Blame yourself.”

Previously, the openly gay recording artist tweeted, “I spent my entire teenage years hating myself because of the s### y’all preached would happen to me because I was gay. So I hope u are mad, stay mad, feel the same anger you teach us to have towards ourselves.”

Besides Joyner Lucas, Lil Nas X has also been reacting to complaints from other individuals like former Golden State Warriors basketball player Nick Young, Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and right-wing commentator Candace Owens. LNX’s responses are mostly just him trolling his detractors.
