Saweetie Addresses Like Viral Tweet Questioning Lil Nas X’s Sexuality
Saweetie is facing backlash after liking a tweet taking pictures of Lil Nas X about his sexuality.
Friday, a the clip surfaced on Twitter of the Grammy-winning artist performing at Lollapalooza. The footage was posted with an offensive comment about the 23-year-old star.
“I feel like he’s not really gay or not really female, it’s so forced,” the Twitter user wrote on the post, which was liked by rapper Saweetie.
The ‘My Type’ artist, who claims she misunderstood the context behind the tweet, quickly tried to clear things up after being called out on social media.
Claiming that she liked the tweet without seeing “the shadow”, Saweetie disliked the tweet. She then insisted she only liked him because she thought the ‘Old Town Road’ singer “looked good.”
“He looked good and that’s why I liked the video. Didn’t see the shadow… *unlike*,” she tweeted in response to the backlash.
Soon after, fans began tweeting their support for the singer, insisting it must have been a misunderstanding.
On Saturday, Lil Nas X responded to the star on Twitter with two blue heart emojis.
In November, Saweetie went still viral after Twitter users speculated that she hit out at her ex-boyfriend Quavo over her song ‘Don’t Say Nothin’ from her ‘Single Life’ EP.
The song features lyrics such as, “Post a pic in his sweatshirt, I bet my ex got hurt / That’s what I get for kissing these frogs / He got mad and told my business to blogging.”
Fans doubled down on speculation, noting that just a month earlier Quavo had stirred up the internet with the release of his song. “Messy.”
“If Saweetie wants to drag Quavo, SHE CAN!” Nobody cared about her mental and healing process when they dragged her,” a fan tweeted.
The fiasco began after Saweetie appeared on Yung Miami’s Revolt TV show “Caresha Please” in September, where the “Icy” rapper got emotionally candid about her three-year relationship with Quavo.
When asked on the show if their relationship was toxic, Saweetie noted that they had “a lot of growing pains together.”
“I thought we were going to spend the rest of our lives together,” she added. “With him, I just knew it was the one. It was different… I was just captivated by who he was as a human. Even if he wasn’t a rapper, I would still have been in love with him. It was one of those things.
In response, the Atlanta rapper fired back after the interview, rapping to “Messy”: “I said ‘Caresha please’ ’cause she’s too messy (Woo, please) .”
Saweetie denied dissing Quavo during an Instagram Live in August.
“There’s no one dissing anyone. When I went on ‘Caresha Please’ I told y’all, whoever it was on ‘Don’t Say Nothin’, whoever this message was for, it wasn’t for anyone’, she clarified.
