It’s only been a couple days since “Old Town Road” rapper Lil Nas X revealed he’s gay on the last day Pride Month.
Since the big reveal, Lil Nas X has faced tons homophobic remarks on social media. He’s even been targeted by Boosie Badazz and 50 Cent for his sexual preference.
Just a few days ago, Lil Nas X shared an image a cowboy-hat-wearing emoji holding a gun on Instagram.
“Say one more home phobic thing to me,” the rapper writes in the caption.
Despite the hate, Lil Nas X has also received an outpouring love from fellow artists. Diplo tweeted to say “we love you tho,” while Dwayne Wade fered supportive words saying he’s proud “who and what you represent.”
Obviously, the homophobic remarks are getting old, but that hasn’t stopped Lil Nas from enjoying his newfound fame. He’s even cracked a few jokes about it on Twitter. After writing a song called “Panini” for his latest EP, the rapper tweeted Gordon Ramsay.
“Teach me how to make paninis while I’m still in London,” Lil Nas asked. Ramsay quickly got back to the rapper and told him to “name the day.”

Shortly after, Ramsay and Lil Nas X met up and made panini together. Lil Nas shared two images himself with the famous chef, with both holding their culinary treats. Lil Nas seemed sad that the Hell’s Kitchen star didn’t curse and yell at him during his cooking lesson, however.

Since then, the song has , and Lil Nas X claims the albums went Diamond this week (the RIAA clarified that it’s actually 3x Platinum, not 10x Platinum which is required for Diamond certification).
