Not all comments were positive as many were quick to criticize Nas X's choice of costume. Saying the rapper is looking like former basketball player Dennis Rodman, a user tweeted, "He looks like he’s channeling Dennis Rodman," while another, criticizing Nas X for buttering Nicki, said, "Remember when Lil Nas X said he wasn’t a Barb, and now he’s doing everything in his power to kiss her ass." Some users were even angry and said, "I just deleted 'Old Town Road' out my library cuz Lil Nas X went too far with that costume," while another, saying the same, tweeted, "Never listening to 'Panini' or 'Old Town Road' again." A more angry user said, "The entertainment industry is filled with people like him. I can’t be surprised anymore!"
