Lil Nas X responds to homophobic rant by rapper Pastor Troy about his hot pink outfit at the Grammys

While many fans rejoiced when Lil Nas X took home two Grammys, and when he performed a rousing remix of his hit Old Town Road, it also lead to a homophobic rant by Atlanta rapper Pastor Troy.

The 42-year-old Troy (real name Micah LeVar Troy) took to Instagram on Wednesday, sharing a photo of 20 year old Lil Nas X (real name Montero Lamar Hill) in his hot pink outfit at the Grammys, claiming he will never win a Grammy, ‘if this what I gotta wear.’

While the post was later deleted, it was shared by music writer Ronald Isley and retweeted by Lil Nas X with a simple response: ‘Damn i look good in that pic on god.’

After referring to Lil Nas X’s hot pink cowboy outfit shown in the photo, Troy posted, he continued, ‘They love to push this s**t on Our Kids!!’ referring to homosexuality.

Pastor Troy has yet to respond to either of Lil Nas X’s tweets at this time.

Lil Nas X’s two Grammy’s cap off a groundbreaking year for the rapper, whose Old Town Road was atop the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts for a record-breaking 19 weeks in a row.

This mark surpassed Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s One Sweet Day and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Despacito featuring Justin Bieber, which both topped the charts for 16 weeks in a row.
