Lil Nas X Reacts to Being Hacked

A History of Being Hacked:
Interestingly, this isn’t Lil Nas X’s first rodeo with being hacked either. Earlier this year, in June, Lil Nas X’s Facebook was hacked, with the hacker posting an anti-LGBTQ post. In the post, which was written by the hackers to impersonate Lil Nas X, the hackers attempted to frame the rapper as not really being gay. Since then, Lil Nas X has responded to that hacking attempt as well, also joking it off in the process.
