Lil Nas X is known to crack jokes online, but even the “Old Town Road” rapper knew his joke about transitioning crossed a line … so he’s issuing an apology.
LNX had originally posted a photo of social medial influencer Glow Princess, and quipped “the surgery was a success” … causing many clueless fans to believe he’d actually undergone a gender-changing procedure. 😬
When fans in the know began firing off angry tweet after angry tweet, Lil Nas owned up to his blunder.
He responded … “Apologies to the trans community i def handled that situation with anger instead of considering why it was not cool … much love to you guys. sorry.”
What’s odd about his original tweet is … Lil Nas X endured plenty of offensive tweets himself when he came out as gay. So, you’d think he’d be the last person to make a trans joke — but looks like a case of lesson learned.
