Looks 21-year-old hit sensation LIL NAS X firing back at 6ix9ine homophobic post aimed at him.

Earlier this week, in a now-deleted social media post, Tekashi69 (also known as 6ix9ine, colloquially) uploaded a screenshot of an article headline that read, “China Makes COVID-19 Anal Swabs Mandatory for Foreigners” and added the caption, “Lil Nas X has entered the chat.” This was clearly a homophobic swipe at the “Old Town Road” artist, implying that Lil Nas X would be thrilled to engage in the anal swab test because it would be similar to the act of anal sex.

Yikes. The homophobia jumped out! Well, so did Lil Nas X’s mic-drop-level comeback.

On Thursday, Lil Nas X took to his TikTok page to post a video with a series of vignettes recapping Tekashi69’s feeble attempt at “trying it” and then proceeded to present a screenshot of the “Trollz” rapper reaching out in the DMs with the message, “Gonna be in your city soon, what ya doing lol?”, with an upside-down smiley face emoji and a heart emoji at the end. Lil Nas X posted the video on his Twitter as well, with the caption, “This you?”

In the wittiest moment of the day, Jackée Harry continued to be a highlight of the Twitter timeline and simply tweeted, “Not Tekashi lookin’ for 6-9 inches.” Prime comedy.

Lil Nas X has actually been on a roll with this callout energy as he’s been constantly targeted by homophobes, some of whom are accusing him of being an “industry plant” just because he’s decided to express himself outside of cis-heteronormativity.
