Controversial rap artist Lil Nas X, who recently performed at the Grammys, got into an exchange with Newsmax anchor Greg Kelly in what turned out to be a rather strange altercation, especially in our modern day and age.
We’ll get around to that, don’t worry.
However, the whole thing kicked off when Kelly, a former White House correspondent for Fox News, called out the rapper for a very, uh, “provocative” performance during the Grammys Award Show.
Now, keep in mind, this year’s performance was not nearly as over-the-top as the time when the “Old Town Road” performer actually slid down a stripper pole and gave Satan, yes, THAT Satan, a lap dance.
Apparently this time all he did was just grab his junk a bunch and use the microphone as a faux male appendage. You know, real “g-rated” kind of material.
“‘Lil NAS has a BIG PROBLEM (And so does America) — knock yourself out NAS. You’re a little FOOL with zero talent!!!!” Kelly stated in his original tweet.
Check out more from The Daily Wire:
Lil Nas, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, ignored a lot of the criticism about the performance that was coming from Twitter followers. He did choose to reply to Kelly, however.
The “Industry Baby” performer responded by saying, “damn greg all i did was wear a crop top this time,” followed by two crying emojis, insinuating that the news anchor was offended by his outfit.
Kelly didn’t let it go. He clapped back, saying he took issue with the nature of the performance.
It’s not the shirt NAS—it was the PUBLIC LEWDNESS. You know there are LAWS about that in certain “jurisdictions”—but then again you were in VEGAS so who the hell knows. Bottom line: SING AND DANCE but no public self GROPING. DECENCY! https://t.co/qHSIFPLnpL

“It’s not the shirt NAS—it was the PUBLIC LEWDNESS,” Kelly stated in his reply on Twitter. “You know there are LAWS about that in certain “jurisdictions”—but then again you were in VEGAS so who the hell knows. Bottom line: SING AND DANCE but no public self GROPING. DECENCY!”
Folks were very eager to see how Lil Nax X would respond to the comment, and to his credit, the guy actually issued an apology to Kelly and then let the whole thing slide.
“apologies. have a great night,” Hill responded.
“I didn’t like the performance,” Kelly stated in his reply. “That shouldn’t have been on prime time television. BUT, I can’t deny you have real talent. And it’s not nice to Call anyone a fool! You called me out in a ‘good natured’ way. NP. Good luck, continued success, just tone it down a notch Next year!”
To be honest, that’s a pretty civil exchange for comments made on Twitter in the modern era, especially between two individuals who have vastly different worldviews.
Other Twitter users were also offended by Lil Nas X’s performance with one going on to tweet, “I can’t watch @LilNasX grab his d*** anymore on the #GRAMMYs It’s not going anywhere. Just stop!”
“Well we know he has a d*** because he grabbed it like A MILLION times during his performance,” another said.
