Rather than stoop to Pastor Troy’s level, Lil Nas X decided to take the D.S.G.B. rapper’s perceived homophobic comments in stride.
On Wednesday (January 29), shortly after Pastor Troy went viral on Twitter, the recent Grammy Award winner responded to Pastor Troy’s rant about his pink cowboy outfit and alleged gay “agenda.”
“damn i look good in that pic on god,” he wrote alongside a retweet of Pastor Troy’s original post.

Lil Nas X performed at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) with the Nas, BTS and Billy Ray Cyrus. He was nominated in several categories, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Rap/Sung Performance.
While the 20-year-old artist didn’t win in any of those categories, he did pick up a gilded trophy in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Old Town Road” with the aforementioned Billy Ray Cyrus.
Apparently, Pastor Troy believes the only reason he won is because of his colorful wardrobe choice.
“Welp, Guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY…If this what I gotta wear,” he wrote on Instagram. “They love to push this shit on Our Kids!! 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 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!!”
Judging by Lil Nas X’s Grammy performance, he’s too busy smiling to care.
