Pastor Troy, 42, posted a photo on Instagram of Lil Nas X’s show-stopping outfit from the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. “Welp, guess I won’t be winning a GRAMMY...If this what I gotta wear,” the D.S.G.B. rapper captioned the photo. “They love to push this s**t on our lids!!”

The rapper proceeded to describe an instance when he encountered a gay couple that made him upset.  “The other day @applebees had some punks kissing and laughing eating mozzarella sticks. First thing my 14 yr old son said was, ‘F**k Applebees,’ and it brought joy to my heart!! He sees it...their agenda to take the masculinity from men, black men especially.”

Referring back to Lil Nas X, 20, Pastor Troy ended his rant, “Some may say, ‘He making money!!’ RuPaul do too, but I ain’t bumping his CD!!! Integrity is priceless. Y’all better open that third eye and let your sons know what is real...or they a** gone be headed down that old town road for real!”

Lil Nas X fans also took to social media and slammed Pastor Troy for the homophobic comments. “I f**k with P Troy. But this was unnecessary. It's a form of bullying, and shaming,” one person wrote. “And anybody in his camp should press you about this post. Imagine your son being scrutinized on a social media for being black. I hope your peers check you to bruh.”

Others joked about Pastor Troy’s Grammy prospects. “You were never going to win a Grammy anyway so this was just hateful for no reason,” one fan wrote. Another said, “Pastor Troy is 105 worrying about a 20 year old boy winning a Grammy because he’s gay?! First of all ... no one knows you, you weren’t winning a Grammy in any lifetime.”

Lil Nas X came out on June 30, 2019, which was the last day of Pride Month. “Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone f**k with me no more,” he tweeted. “But before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.” The rapper also shared the cover art for his debut EP 7, which had rainbow imagery. “Deada** thought I made it obvious,” he added.

“I was like I don't just want to live my entire life, you know, not doing what I want to do,” Lil Nas X revealed in an interview with BBC in July 2019. “I want them other gay people to feel more comfortable pretty much. Especially within the country and hip hop communities.”
