Lil Nas X addressed backlash over his new music video with biblical imagery, explaining that it wasn’t meant to mock Christianity but rather to symbolize his return.

He apologized for any offense caused, particularly for a scene involving communion.

He admitted to going too far and expressed a desire to clear the air with his Christian fans, emphasizing his intention to promote love and unity. (Trending: Two Names Emerge As Trump’s Possible 2024 Running Mate)

“I wanted to not necessarily apologize, but I wanted to explain where my head at and where it’s been for like the last week. So first of all, when I did the artwork, I knew there would be some upset people or whatnot simply cause religion is a very sensitive topic for a lot of people. But I also didn’t mean to mock,” wrote the rapper.

Lil Nas X said the video “wasn’t like a ‘f— you to you people. F— you to the Christians.’”

“It was not that. It was literally me saying, ‘Oh, I’m back. I’m back like Jesus.’ Like that was the whole thing,” he explained.

“I’m not the first person to dress up as Jesus. I’m not the first rapper. I’m not the first artist, and I won’t be the last. And I know, given my history with the ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ video, anything that I do related to religion can be seen as mockery. That just was not the case with this,” said Lil Nas X.

“It’s me eating the communion, which is the symbolism of Jesus’ blood and bones or something like that, I don’t remember completely. I didn’t mean it as a cannibalism thing or whatever the freak, but I do apologize for that,” the rapper continued.

“I will say I am sorry for that,” he added.

“I know I messed up really bad this time, and I can act unbothered all I want, but it’s definitely taken a mental toll on me,” confessed the musician.

“I do want my Christian fans to know that I am not against you. I was put on this earth to bring people closer together and promote love, and that’s who I am,” he concluded.

Christian rapper Byron Gray criticized Lil Nas X for what he perceived as mockery of Christianity, suggesting that the artist’s use of Christian imagery was for clickbait.

“My thoughts on this is that I believe Lil Nas X is potentially a reprobate as described in Romans 1. I think that he is mocking Christianity. He is mocking Christ,” said Gray.

“That’s why he uses Christian imagery to do it. He’s doing it with the goal to mock us because that’s how he gets his clicks,” he continued.
