Lil Nas X will drop a shoe with Chick-fil-A
The rapper clapped-back at the situation further by revealing ‘another shoe collab’.
He tweeted a photo of white Air Force 97’s featuring a Chick-fil-A logo and slogan “My Pleasure”. To top it all off, it references Bible verse John 3:16.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The gay musician pokes more fun at the situation by using Chick-fil-A, as they have been linked to anti-LGBT organisations.
Samuel Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, and his charity WinShape Foundation, contributed grants worth millions to anti-gay organisations such as Exodus International and the Family Research Council.
