Saweetie Addresses Liked Viral Tweet Questioning Lil Nas X’s Sexuality

Saweetie is facing backlash after liking a tweet attacking Lil Nas X for his sexuality.

A clip of the Grammy winner performing at the Lollapalooza surfaced on Twitter on Friday. The footage was posted along with an abusive comment about the 23-year-old star.

“I feel like he’s not really gay or really that feminine that it’s so forced,” the Twitter user wrote on the post, which was liked by rapper Saweetie.

The “My Type” artist, who claims to have misunderstood the context behind the tweet, was quick to try to clear the air after being called out on social media.

Saweetie claimed that she liked the tweet without seeing “the shadyness” and disliked the tweet. She then insisted she only liked it because she thought the “Old Town Road” singer was “good looking, af.”

“He was good looking, so I liked the video. I didn’t see the shadyness… *as opposed to*,” she tweeted in response to the backlash.

Shortly after, fans began tweeting their support for the singer, insisting it must have been a misunderstanding.

On Saturday, Lil Nas X responded to the star with two blue heart emojis on Twitter.

In November, Saweetie went viral again after Twitter users speculated that she attacked her ex-boyfriend Quavo with her song “Don’t Say Nothin” from her EP Single Life.

The song includes lyrics like, “Post a pic in his sweatshirt I bet it hurt my ex / I get this for kissing those frogs / He got mad and started telling the blogs about my affair.”

Fans doubled the speculation, noting that just a month earlier, Quavo had roiled the internet with the release of his song “Messy.”

“If Saweetie Quavo wants to pull, SHE can!” No one cared about her mental and healing process as they dragged her,” one fan tweeted.

The fiasco began after Saweetie appeared on Yung Miami’s Revolt TV show Caresha Please in September, where the “Icy” rapper was emotionally candid about her three-year relationship with Quavo.

When asked on the show if their relationship was toxic, Saweetie noted that they had “a lot of growing pains together.”

“I thought we would spend the rest of our lives together,” she added. “With him, I just knew it was him. It was different… I was just captivated by who he was as a person. Even if he wasn’t a rapper, I would still have fallen in love with him. It was one of those things.”

In response, the Atlanta rapper fired back after the interview, rapping on “Messy,” “I said, ‘Caresha, please,’ because she’s too messy (Woo, please).”

Saweetie denied dissing Quavo during an Instagram Live in August.

“No one disses anyone. When I went on ‘Caresha Please’ I said to all of you, whoever is on ‘Don’t Say Nothin’, whoever that message was for, it wasn’t for nobody,” she clarified.
