The video features a gay man getting sentenced to death by archaic haters, pole dancing down to hell, and seducing the devil before claiming the throne for himself. In other words, if Christians want to tell Lil Nas and every other queer person that they’re going to hell for being themselves, then let’s ride.
Obviously that hasn’t sat well with conservatives, who have spent the last several days blasting the rapper for being in bed with Satan.
Always desperate for relevancy, Kaitlin Bennett aka “Gun Girl,” also chimed in, commenting that she was “thankful to be blocked by Lil Nas X” during these larger conversations.
But he saw the tweet all the same, and commented as much, which for some reason prompted Bennett to ask if he still sees his dad.
“Yep and I might f—k yours,” Lil Nas replied.
It’s the kind of schoolyard comment that’s clearly meant to be ridiculous while playing directly off Bennett’s own statement, but she immediately twisted it into something incredibly dark.
It doesn’t take a master’s degree in literature to comprehend Lil Nas’s tweet, or Bennett’s blatant lie about the situation. Nowhere did he threaten to rape anyone, and only people projecting their own racist and homophobic fears onto his statement would choose to read it that way.
