Lil Nas X is being roasted online for dressing up as a soiled tampon for Halloween. The one-hit rapper angered social media users by mocking women’s menstrual cycles.
Outraged women took to Twitter/X to criticize the rapper for “making light” of feminine issues.
One Twitter/X user wrote:
“Lil Nas X who ‘went into labor’ to promote his album, and released a song about worshipping Satan while giving the devil a lap dance, dressed up as a used tampon for Halloween. He’s a gross degenerate, desperate for attention.”
If you can’t see how much of a problem your costume is then you’re the problem for sure. You don’t know how lucky you are to never have to experience menstrual cycles. It’s not just bleeding out of your vagina for a week every month, they’re painful for a lot of women & I won’t

Another woman wrote:
“Lil nas x dressing up as a bloody tampon is the most annoying thing I’ve seen tonight. He does nothing except romanticize things that give women pain.”
A third person tweeted:
“Gay men often think they can get a pass without realizing they can be equally misogynistic… it’s not up to cis men to make light of things like this.”
A fourth person said: “As someone who has a vagina, this is not it.”
This guy lives off shock value and then promotes music and everyone falls for it everytime
