L.A, 2022-06-27 12:54:27. Lil Nas X calls out for BET Awards


Lil Nas X calls out the BET Awards for not being inclusive.

The rapper and recording artist expressed his disappointment at being left out of the nominations this year.

Earlier this month, he tweeted: “Thank you for the awards. Great zero nominations again. Black Excellence.” He added that he wanted to tackle “the biggest problem of homophobia in the black community”.

He recently shared a new single, “Late To Da Party,” with cover artwork showing a BET award in a restroom.

Lil Nas described his “painful” history with the network in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.

“My relationship with BET has been painful and strained for some time. It didn’t start with this year’s nominations as most people think,” he told the publication. “They let me perform their show last year, but only after that [I gave] Assurances that I am neither a worshiper nor a devil worshiper, and that my performance will be appropriate for their audience.”

“At BET, we are passionate advocates for the incredible diversity that exists within our community,” the network said in a statement, according to the report. “We are committed to using all of our platforms to provide visibility and inclusion at all of the many intersections of the black community.”

Rapper Jack Harlow, who performed at the BET Awards on Sunday, wore a Lil Nas X shirt to the red carpet in an apparent show of support.
