The funny fracas started when Tekashi69, now a year removed from being released from prison, shared an article on Instagram titled, “China Makes COVID-19 Anal Swabs Mandatory for Foreigners.”
Tekashi69, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, added the caption, “Lil Nas X has entered the chat” to the now-deleted post.
The insult is one of many offensive insults related to his sexual orientation that the rapper has encountered since sharing he is gay, as Blavity previously reported.
But, as he is known to do, Lil Nas X responded in the best way he knows how.

The “Old Town Road” rapper shared a video of himself next to a screenshot of his direct messages on Instagram where Hernandez can be seen messaging him.
“Gonna be in your city soon, what ya doing lol?” Hernandez wrote with a smiley face.
The response elicited a lot of laughs and jokes at Hernandez’s expense.
