Don’t worry, we’re just as confused as you are. We’ve all refreshed the Instagram app four hundred times, wondering what the heck is going on. Why is everyone commenting ‘nah he tweakin’?
Are we missing the punchline to a joke or something?
Why is everyone commenting ‘nah he tweakin’ on Instagram?
Seriously, what is going on?
Some Insta-fanatics were convinced that the app had been hacked by spam robots of some sort. Others pointed fingers at a potential glitch. It turns out that, well, people are just reiterating a Lil Nas X comment.
It’s crazy, but it’s true.
In response to Tony Hawk’s latest skateboard collab, Lil Nas X wrote: “nah he tweakin” – and we know what happened next.
If you’re not familiar, Tony Hawk announced a partnership with Liquid Death, set to release limited-edition skateboards that are painted with Hawk’s own blood. Read about the collab in detail here.
If you recall, Lil Nas X landed in some pretty hot water when he tried his hand at releasing a product involving human blood. The artist’s shoes, dubbed as ‘Satan shoes‘ stirred an insane amount of controversy, with people stamping Lil Nas as a ‘devil worshipper’.
So, when Lil Nas X found out about Hawk’s ‘bloody’ collab, he took to the comment section to write that little-known phrase that we can’t stop seeing down our Insta feeds. It won’t stop!
However, on the other end of the spectrum, it looks as though this is just a trend and will fade out by the end of the week.
Twitter reacts to Lil Nas X comment
Presumably having had enough of Instagram for the time being, people have turned to Twitter, wondering just what is going on.
The internet is so confused that, according to UberFacts, US Google searches for ‘Nah he tweakin’ have eclipsed searches for ‘TikTok’ – wow!
One baffled user tweeted: “what does “nah he tweakin” even mean?”
Somebody else wrote: “Opening Instagram for the first time all day and seeing all the “nah he tweakin” comments everywhere..”
Another took to Twitter to write: “Now who hacked Instagram and made all the comments say “nah he tweakin””
Instagram comms even issued a statement following the comments, reading: “Yeah we tweakin, but only a little bit. We’re aware that some people are having issues loading their comments (we’re fixing that) and that some are seeing a bunch of comments saying “nah he tweakin” (what is that?). More soon!”
There you have it, now you know what’s going on over on Instagram!
