Lil Nas X lashed out at Nike for blocking his bag after a judge issued a restraining order banning sales of his “Satan shoes” on Monday.
The judge issued the order against sneaker design company MSCHF Product Studio after Nike filed a lawsuit blocking the sale and distribution.
The Air Max 97 sneakers sold out in less than a minute following the launch on Monday. MSCHF claimed the sneakers contain one drop of human blood in the soles.
The one-hit rapper tried to circumvent the restraining order by giving away the sneakers for free on social media.
He took to Twitter to inform his followers that he couldn’t even give away the sneakers for free.
“sorry guys i’m legally not allowed to give the 666th pair away anymore because of the crying nerds on the internet,” he wrote.
“I haven’t been upset until today, i feel like it’s f***ed up they have so much power they can get shoes cancelled. freedom of expression gone out the window. but that’s gonna change soon.”
Some of his Twitter followers were unsympathetic. One fan reminded the rapper that fans are fickle.
