Popular Atlanta rapper Pastor Troy has an issue with gay people pushing an agenda on the younger generation and he decided to address the situation via a homophobic rant targeted at fast-rising musician Lil Nas X.
Taking to his Instagram, the rapper shared a photo of the Old Town Road crooner’s outfit for the Grammy awards and asserted he hasn’t yet won a Grammy for his refusal to dress like that. Lil Nas X scooped two awards at the event.
“Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY…If this what I gotta wear,” he started. “They love to push this sh*t on Our Kids!!”
He then went ahead to rant about how he saw a same sex couple kissing at Applebee’s and expressed how proud he was of his son for showing his disgust.
“The other day @applebees had some punks kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks. First thing My 14 yr old son said was, “F**** Applebee’s” And it Brought Joy to My Heart,” he continued. “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 got wind of his post, replied in a rather unbothered way. Retweeting a screenshot of the rapper’s post, he wrote: “Damn I look good in that pic on god.”
Pastor Troy later responded to the criticisms on his controversial post in a video, Rap-Up reports.
“It worked! It worked perfectly ’cause now all these fa**ots on my page and they wanna fight me,” he said. “See, that’s that male aggression coming back out ya. It’s in you, you just gotta let it hang out. Now you wanna fight. That’s what I’m talkin’ about. Be a man.”
He added: “There’s a war going on. Y’all better get to fighting.”
Born Montero Lamar Hill, Lil Nas X came out of the closet in June 2019 to coincide with the last day of pride month.
“Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure,” he shared on Twitter.
In another tweet, he also shared his 7’s EP artwork which featured a rainbow.
“Deadass thought i made it obvious,” he captioned.
Speaking about the stigma on CBS, he said: “We still have a long way to go, because it’s not like everybody is messing with me now. ‘Of course, somebody who’s listening to me in school right now, it’s like, ‘You’re gay, cause you’re listening to him.’ There’s still lot to be done.”
