Lil Nas X Had The Perfect Response To A Homophobic Rant From Rapper Pastor Troy

Lil Nas X, who is currently on yet another career-high following his two Grammy wins, responded in perhaps the best way possible to a vile homophobic rant from Down South Georgia Boys rapper Pastor Troy.

In a tirade of abuse posted on Instagram on Wednesday, Pastor Troy wrote: “Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY…If this what I gotta wear,” a reference to Lil Nas X’s all-pink ensemble at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

He continued his rant, talking about how he and his son recently saw a gay couple “kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks” in an Applebee’s commercial. “First Thing My 14 yr old Son said was, ‘F**** Applebee’s’ And It Brought Joy to My Heart!!” he wrote. “He sees it…their agenda to take the masculinity from Men, Black Men Especially. Some may say, ‘He Making Money!!’ Rupaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD!!! Integrity is Priceless. Y’all Better open that 3rd Eye and let your Sons Know What Is Real…Or They Ass Gone Be Headed Down That Old Town Road Foreal!!”

Lil Nas X, who came out as gay last year, captured a screenshot of the Instagram post, which has since been deleted, and tweeted it alongside a photo of himself at the Grammys.

He shut down the rapper with a simple caption: “damn i look good in that pic on god.”

Shortly after Lil Nas X made his post, Pastor Troy’s name quickly started trending on Twitter, with multiple Twitter users taking their turns roasting the homophobic rapper.

“Ask anyone under 30 who pastor troy is,” one user wrote. “Pastor Troy cracked his knuckles and typed that long message to let us know his breaking point is 2 men enjoying mozzarella sticks. Lmao,” another wrote.
