(AllHipHop Rumors) Last night, we toasted to Lil. Nas X at the BET Awards! The whole show was dope! I have to say this one was really good. I felt like it really covered the gambit of Black music and entertainment across the board. Our own Rea was on the BLUE carpet, covering the whole scene and spotted Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus on the carpet. I am not sure if we got an interview, but this was a pretty cool moment.
Now. It seems like somebody has taken the time and energy to plow through all of the tweets 20-year old Lil Nas X has done in his life and they found something. They found 4-year old tweets were he expressed classic Islamophobia! Take a look at #LilNasXIsOverParty for all the chatter going on about this, but it has been carrying on since yesterday.
This is how is all started. We know him as Lil Nas X, but the dude had another account, a Nicki Minaj stan account called @nasmaraj.On that account he allegedly said, "Stop pretending there is no correlation between violence & Islam.” Well, a lot of people took offense and now want to "cancel" him.
Here is the other tweet that I cannot quite get a hold of at the moment. Regardless, it did NOT help.
Anyway. I don't know what I think about this, but I am not with the cancellation of this dude. And I really feel like he should get a pass for being young and dumb. I think some people forget when they were 16 years old, which is when the alleged tweets happened.
So, here is the issue and Idon't have the full story. Somebody is definitely hating on Lil Nasir. They are saying its either Nicki or Cardi stans, but I cannot remember to be honest. But only those sort of people have the time to go back some 3-4 years looking for offensive tweets from a relative unknown rapper/singer...from a ghost account. Maybe it was people from Country music.
Shame on yall!
