Lil Nas X is apologizing to trans people for his comments. In a since-deleted tweet from Tuesday, the “Old Town Road” singer published a photo of a lady who resembled him with the message, “the surgery was a success,” joking that he had transitioned.
Members of the LGBTQ+ community criticized the article for making light of transgender people, especially given that the ACLU reports that more than 400 anti-trans measures are presently being drafted in the United States.
“You’re a gay cis male why are you making transitioning a punchline of a joke,” read one response to Lil Nas X’s tweet.

The “Industry Baby” singer responded to the backlash shortly after the conversations, taking to Twitter once more. “apologies to the trans community,” he wrote. “I def handled that situation with anger instead of considering why it was not cool. much love to you guys. sorry.”
A transgender Twitter user responded to his apology by writing, “Baby, this apology ain’t it! You need to apologize to the trans community in material ways that include money, sharing your platform to raise awareness and just keep it! This is fake as hell!”

According to the Human Rights Campaign, “at least 38 transgender people” were murdered in 2017. The majority of those killed were transgender women of color, particularly those of African American and Latinx descent.
“These victims, like all of us, are loving partners, parents, family members, friends and community members. They worked, went to school and attended houses of worship,” wrote the organization. “They were real people — people who did not deserve to have their lives taken from them.”
