Lil Nas X epically trolled right-wing internet personality Andrew Tate for naming the “Industry Baby” among the “insanities in the world”.
Tate was banned from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok in August for espousing his extremely misogynistic views as well as his offensive content towards marginalised groups.
The ex-kickboxer gained notoriety online for saying he believed women should “bear responsibility” for being sexually assaulted and after posts containing homophobic and racial slurs were found on his social media.
Tate decided to target Lil Nas X during an interview with controversial broadcaster Piers Morgan on his talk show, Piers Morgan Uncensored. The former Big Brother contestant spoke about what he described as “traditional masculinity” – claiming he’s a “nice guy” – before labelling Nas as a so-called bad influence.
“You have Lil Nas X twerking on the devil in music videos which our children are digesting,” Tate said, referring to Nas’s music video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.
He continued: “You have drill artists rapping about stabbing people to death in the middle of a knife crime epidemic… You have all these insanities in the world…but I’m not the devil.
“There are certainly worse people than me, and they exist.”
The “Old Town Road” caught wind of the comments and shut Tate down with a searing clap back on Twitter.
“Andrew Tate please stop mentioning me! I am never gonna let you smash loser!” Lil Nas X wrote.

Nas viciously sparred against conservatives calling his music “evil” after he released his video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.
He spoke on social media about the personal significance of why his video used religious imagery, including a scene where he gives the devil a lap dance.
“I spent my entire teenage years hating myself because of the shit y’all preached would happen to me because I was gay,” Lil Nas X said. “So I hope you are mad, stay mad, feel the same anger you teach us to have towards ourselves.”
