AceShowbiz - Lil Nas X refused to be compared to Andrew Tate, who is currently detained in Romania amid human-trafficking allegations. The rapper has fired back after a hater claimed that the 23-year-old musician is no better than the controversial YouTube star.
The Twitter user particularly took issue with the Satan imagery that Nas heavily used while promoting his song "MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)". The troll posted a screenshot from Nas' "MONTERO" music video which featured the rapper dancing on Satan along with a picture of Andrew sitting on what looks like a boat.
"On the left, we have 'Lil Nas X' twerking on Satan," the user pointed out, before adding, "On the right, we have Andrew Tate, who teaches young people to think critically, to take care of their physical health and build financial security. Guess which one is deemed controversial and which is hailed as a role model."
Catching wind of the tweet, Nas explained, "that is a cgi animated being not satan from the bible book." He went on arguing, "there's no such thing as a good role model, y'all need to find yourselves and stop looking for people to look up to."
Another user wasn't having Nas' explanation, writing, "Bro you sold your soul and you know damn well what's you and the rest of the industry is doing. The audacity to post this." To this tweet, the "Old Town Road" hitmaker replied, "so? and ur ugly."
Others also weighed in on the question posed in the original tweet, with many siding with Nas. "Gosh this is a tough one, but I'm going to have to say the accused human trafficker is the controversial one?" one of them commented.
"And if there ever was such a thing as a good role model it would definitely not be Andrew human trafficker Tate," another responded. A third pointed out, "On the left you have a musician. On the right you have a sex offender. Which do you think cishets online would rather have around their kids."
Someone else thinks the criticism was outdated, penning, "Bro that music video like 2 years old there's no way they still talking about it."
