Days after facing heat from the Internet for his music video for his new single ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’, the singer-songwriter has now sparked outrage over the release of a pair of shoes. The ‘Old Town Rod’ hitmaker was all over the news when he announced his customized Nike 'Satan Shoes' in collaboration with the clothing brand MSCHF.

The streetwear news outlet Saint had also dropped a few pictures of the new shoes which apparently contains 6CCs of red ink and one drop of human blood in its sole. Apart from this, the dark red pair of shoes come with “Luke 10:18” written on the side, a Bible verse about Satan’s fall from heaven. The 21-year-old soon got dragged on the Internet for the same while Nike also denied its involvement in the customized pair of shoes. The rapper, however, also trolled the Internet by announcing a new pair of white sneakers with the name of the famous chicken sandwich brand ‘Chic-fil-A’.

Nike denies involvement in Lil Nas X’s Satan Shoes

Lil Nas X surely managed to raise eyebrows with his 'Satan Shoes' but global shoe brand Nike did not waste any time to deny their involvement in the same. The shoes which are Nike’s classic Air Max 97s, got customized as per Nas X’s taste but the brand soon shared an official statement where they stated, “We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF. Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them”, reports NBC News. The brand MSCHF had previously released a pair of customized Nike Air Max 97s known as the "Jesus Shoes," which contained what it described as holy water in its sole drawn from the River Jordan. 

Did Lil Nas X apologize for the controversy?

When Lil Nas X was getting crucified on the Internet over his new shoes, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem also took to Twitter to slam the new pair of shoes. In her tweet, she posted, “Our kids are being told that this kind of product is, not only okay, it's "exclusive". But do you know what's more exclusive? Their God-given eternal soul. We are in a fight for the soul of our nation. We need to fight hard. And we need to fight smart. We have to win."



 

 

The Georgia native, instead of apologizing or holding himself back, logged into his Twitter to fire back at the Governor. Reverting to her tweet, he asked her to focus on her job. “Ur a whole governor and u on here tweeting about some damn shoes. do ur job!”  In another tweet, he also defended his 'Satan Shoes' and shared, “Y’all gotta admit... the shoes hard! u cannot sit here and lie.”

Nas X decided further to have fun with netizens as he shared a video on his official YouTube account with the caption, “Lil Nas X apologizes for Satan Shoe”. In the video, the singer can be seen holding the sneaker and before he gets to apologizing, the video abruptly cuts to the clip from 'Montero' of him giving the devil a lap dance. Looking at the backlash, Nas X then took to his Twitter and announced that a new pair of customized white Nike Air Max 97s saying, “We have decided to drop these to even the score. damn y’all happy now?” The new pic revealed the text which read “John 3:16” taken from the Bible verse. It also comes with a text “Chic-Fil-A” along with the text “My Pleasure” and it seems he again trolled the Internet as the name is of a popular chicken sandwich brand.
