Jack Harlow on the red carpet of BET Awards 2022 proved why friendship matters above everything in his life after the rapper was spotted wearing a Lil Nas X tee. The ‘Whats Poppin’ hitmaker raised eyebrows as his stunt got dubbed as a silent protest. The move comes after BET failed to nominate Lil Nas X in a single category which made him release a diss track at the award ceremony.
 
Social media users may have trolled Jack Harlow asking what a White guy was doing at an award show meant for Black folks but they also praised the rapper for extending his support to his collaborator and close pal Lil Nas X. The latter had recently dropped a diss track against BET called ‘Late To Da Party (F**K BET)’ that also featured NBA YoungBoy on the vocals.

‘Wow, I really love this man’

Lil Nas X, who joined hands with Jack Harlow on ‘Industry Baby’, gave the latter his flowers with a tweet reading, “Wow, I really love this man.” In an interview with the Rolling Stone, Nas X recalled his last year’s performance at BET saying, “They did let me perform on their show last year, but only after giving assurances that I was not a devil worshiper and that my performance would be appropriate for their audience.”
 
Expressing his frustration before teasing the diss track, the 23-year-old singer and rapper in a now-deleted tweet had said, “thank you bet awards. an outstanding zero nominations. black excellence!" He had also tweeted, “This not over no bet award this is about the bigger problem of homophobia in the black community, y’all can sit and pretend all u want but imma risk it all for us.” He then reverted to a fan who pointed out his Grammy win. Nas X said, “This is my point exactly how can i get acknowledged by the most acclaimed award show in the world and then not even just 1 nomination from my own people? is that not crazy? am i really tripping.” In another tweet, Nas X told a fan, “Talk to my team about what? industry baby is the 2nd longest running #1 song on the billboard rap charts of all time and didn’t get a single nomination.”

Not only is his music legendary, but he didn’t have to comment on the BET situation but still did, and that’s f**king fantastic. Brilliant way to call out the BET awards and stand up for his friend.”
