Lil Nas X has stayed in the headlines and pretty much caused alot of chatter on social media with every step he takes. While "Old Town Road" was wildly popular, he has also pushed some boundaries, most recently with his Satan-inspired Air Max 97s. The outrage behind the demonic theme, particularly the drop of human blood on each shoe, prompted Nike to file a cease and desist order on the shoes. 

Lil Nas X was hung up on the fact that people weren't sharing the same energy about Tony Haw's release. The legendary skateboarder sold out a skateboard including [his] own blood. Nas X questioned why the same people the came after him are quiet about Hawk's skateboard.

"Now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?" Lil Nas X tweeted.

Safaree then decided to share his thoughts on the matter, offering his opinion that it mostly had to do with the Satanic imagery. 

"It’s not the blood it was the whole 666 and trying to associate the devil with it,” he wrote. “We don’t need to act like we out here worshipping the devil. Let’s leave that to the KKK.”
