On March 15, a Twitter user who appeared to be in Tate’s defense published a message portraying Tate as a good guy and Lil Nas X as a bad one.
It should be noted that Tate was branded a “threat to young men” and banned from Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for violating the terms of service regarding hate speech last summer. Moreover, he is now detained in Romania for alleged sex trafficking.
“On the left, we have ‘Lil Nas X’ twerking on Satan,” they wrote with a screenshot of Nas’ “MONTERO” video “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.”
Lil Nas X didn’t waste any time in responding, making it clear that not only was he not twerking on “Satan,” but that neither man should be considered a role model.
“1. that is a cgi animated being, not satan from the bible book,” he wrote. ” 2. 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.”
Lil Nas X got into some trouble earlier this week after making a bad joke about transitioning and sharing it online.
The since-deleted tweet featured a photo of a woman that bared a resemblance to him with the caption: “The surgery was a success” alongside a heart emoji. The rapper from “Old Town Road” apologized to the transgender community after controversy.
“Apologies to the trans community i def handled that situation with anger instead of considering why it was not cool,” Lil Nas wrote in his apology. “Much love to you guys. sorry.”
The topic wasn’t done there, however, as a fan then responded and said his “fake” apology wasn’t enough. To that, Nas X simply wrote: “girl eat my ass.”
