*trigger warning, story contains homophobia and references to suicide. caution advised*
Boosie Badazz took to Twitter calling for Lil Nas X to commit suicide.
This complete sh*t show started following the DaBaby controversy, when the rapper made homophobic and vile, inaccurate remarks about HIV and AIDS whilst onstage at a gig.
Boosie, who has regularly been homophobic on social media to his 1.1 million followers, jumped to DaBaby’s defence at the time, calling Lil Nas X a ‘fa*got’.
Now, after Lil Nas X jokingly said he had a new song coming out with Boosie, the rapper hit back in a series of (since removed) unhinged, bigoted tweets.
It’s not known whether the Tweets were deleted by Boozie or removed by Twitter, but from the ‘no longer available’ status on them presumably it was Twitter.
We have them below anyway:
“STOP TROLLING ME F***** LOL U A WHOLE B*TCH PLAYING WITH A GANGSTA SMH U CAN KEEP SUCKING D*** N GETTIN F***** N YOUR ASS N PEACE.” He continued, “N #uhateyourself I WOULD TOO IF I WAS YOU LOL NASx IF YOU #commitsuicide YOU WOULD DO THIS WORLD A HUGE FAVOR,” before concluding with, “NOBODY WANTS U HERE.” Boosie continued his rant by using a clip of Stephen A. Smith talking on the ESPN show First Take. He concluded by writing, “#thinkaboutit NOBODY WANTS U HERE” and “STOP PLAYING WITH THE STRAIGHT #F***** LOL.”
At the time of writing, Lil Nas X has yet to respond directly, but most his recent post said:
“i am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life. i can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.”
This has to be a huge – and dangerous – violation of Twitter Tc & Cs and either way is completely unacceptable language from anyone with that kind of platform.
