Lil Nas X sends pizza to 'homophobic’ protesters outside his concert, fans say 'I want free pizza too'
Several protestors held signs saying, 'Jesus is God, even demons know it' and 'Repent and Believe the Gospel'
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS: Lil Nas X is currently on his super-hit tour 'Long Live Montero' as he prepares to perform on Tuesday, September 20, at the New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. He will then hit Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Nashville, Orlando, Miami, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and San Francisco. Being on the road for an artist is not easy but Nas X has proved that he will always keep his cool. When an angry crowd of protestors showed up at his outside his concert in Boston, he decided to order them pizza!
The 23-year-old rapper, who has enough experience in handling people with strong opinions managed this boiling situation easily. On the day of his performance at the MGM Music Hall at Fenway last Sunday, September 18, he was informed about a small group of Christian protestors outside the revenue protesting against the 'Industry Baby' singer and his show. Several protestors held signs saying, "Jesus is God, even demons know it" and "Repent and Believe the Gospel." In a TikTok video which was later shared on Twitter as well, Nas X said, "So peopel [sic] were protesting my concert last night. So we brought them pizza." He posted the video on Twitter writing, "Just told my team to send them pizza, this is really good promo!"

The video surpassed 1.6 million views in only 2 hours. In another video, Nas X updated the situation saying the protestors denied the pizza and returned it. But halfway through the video, the singer shifts his focus to a protestor. Nas X posts another video saying, "Update: they didn’t want the pizza but i accidentally fell in love with one of the homophobic protestors." He later made another tweet remembering the protestor he claims he well in love with saying, "Can’t stop thinking about the cute homophobic guy thst was protesting my concert last night. i just know we had a connection. i miss him so much man. i’m nothing without him."

Many people came forward to appreciate this gesture and some were just having fun with it. One TikTok user commented, "You KNOW they wanted to accept that pizza too (crying emoji)‼️" Another user compared his success to Lady Gaga's peak in 2022 saying, "It just means that you’ve made it. They used to do that in 2011 with Gaga as well." One user commented on Twitter saying, "Me pretending to hate Lil Nas X in order to get free pizza (and maybe tickets)" One fan wanted some pizza for themself saying, "I want free pizza too!!!! next time I'll just join the protesting crowd without actually protesting." Another fan complimented Nas X on his subtle way of handling the situation saying, "Love that you're taking it with this exact spirit you're showing here, King. Go off!" Another user pointed out Nas X's impeccable marketing skills saying, "Honestly with the way Nas is doing marketing right now, these might as well be part of the campaign."
