Black Twitter expressed their disappointment after Lil Nas X dropped his LGBT-themed music video for "Industry Baby."
The provocative music video featured naked Black men twerking in a shower. Their private parts blurred to get past the FCC censors.
Nas X is the first rapper to feature an all-Black ghey male cast twerking in his music video. Such a spectacle would not have been possible 20 years ago.
Some parents objected to Nas X being promoted to their children. Nas X has a large following of children and adolescents who buy his books and music.
Here's how Black Twitter responded to the music video:
nigga i literally went to hell and twerked on satan but gay prison is where you draw the line ?! https://t.co/3NLR6GPt0o

I always find it weird that the only reason he gets views is for going viral based on a scene in his music video and not the actual song. The song he dropped after Montero did way less views and had no LGBT viral scene. Odd how the views suddenly switched up.

He’s going farther and farther with his agenda. Buckbreaking is real.

I swear this dude and Lizzo be doing the most cornball sh-t to get approval from white people. Twerking with yo big ass in a thong playing a flute saying "suck my d--k" and bussy boppin naked with a bunch of moist negroes is white people's idea of black empowerment.
