Lil Nas X is no stranger to criticism. The unapologetically flamboyant superstar notably faced backlash last year for the music video for his song MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name). The video depicts a sexual encounter with Satan, and the musician attempted to release a custom line of Nikes that included real human blood soon after.
Conservative media personalities reacted strongly, fueling a highly critical news cycle about the Georgian musician. Through it all, Lil Nas X has remained active online and engaged with both his fans and his critics.
The trend continued in Boston on Sunday, as a small group of protesters gathered outside the new MGM Music Hall as Lil Nas X performed inside.
A video of the protesters shared on Twitter caught Lil Nas X’s attention, and he responded with a seemingly sarcastic promise.
“I just told my team to send them pizzas, that’s a really good promo!” he wrote.
Shortly after, a member of the musician’s team delivered, bringing pizza across the street to the group.
Although the protesters refused the meal, Lil Nas X jokingly tweeted a good side: he fell in love with one of them.
Lil Nas X’s “Long Live Montero Tour” continues at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday, before heading to Philadelphia.
