Trevor Lawrence Fires Back at Lil Nas X’s “Satan Shoes” Containing a Drop of Human Blood

Lil Nas X

Rapper Lil Nas X, famous for his song “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus, is stirring up a viral controversy over his latest partnership with MSCHF.

Lil Nas X is collaborating with the New York corporation to release a limited edition line of “Satan Shoes.” The shoes will reportedly contain a drop of human blood mixed with 66CCs of red ink in the sole of the shoe. Precisely 666 pairs will be made available, representing the sinister mark of Satan.

And the rapper didn’t stop there. On the side of each shoe, there will also be a scripture reference to Luke 10:18, a verse referring to Satan’s fall from heaven. The Satan Shoes will be adorned with upside-down crosses along with a pentagram fixed to the shoelaces.

MSCHF is apparently known for “creating some of the most absurd, cynical, and viral projects and products that have spread across the internet.”

When questioned, the company’s CEO Gabriel Whaley couldn’t even describe MSCHF, but he did explain what differentiates them from other companies:

“Being a company kills the magic,” Whaley recently told Business Insider. “We’re trying to do stuff that the world can’t even define. Our perspective is everything is funny in a nihilistic sort of way. We’re not here to make the world a better place. We’re making light of how much everything sucks.”

Unsurprisingly, news of the satanic shoe collaboration has created an uproar. Even Nike disapproves of the endeavor.

“We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” Nike Media Relations told CBN. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”

A tweet from former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence captured more than 96,000 likes and 16,0000 shares since it was posted yesterday afternoon.

Lawrence simply wrote, “Line has to be drawn somewhere. Smh.” 

Fans emphatically agreed with his blatant disapproval.

Lawrence is expected to be drafted No. 1 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2021 NFL draft, but his passions run much deeper than football. In the past, the quarterback has been very outspoken about his Christian faith and has taken a stand on various social issues.

The shoe controversy also elicited a response from Kristi Noem, the governor of South Dakota.

“Our kids are being told that this kind of product is, not only okay, it’s ‘exclusive.’ But do you know what’s more exclusive? Their God-given eternal soul,” Noem tweeted.

“We are in a fight for the soul of our nation,” she added. “We need to fight hard. And we need to fight smart. We have to win.”

Lil Nas X fired back, tweeting, “ur a whole governor and u on here tweeting about some d*mn shoes. do ur job!’

Clearly undaunted by the criticism, Lil Nas X released an “apology” video featuring him giving Satan a lap dance while singing, “f— it. Let’s ride.”

The rapper’s Satan Shoes will be available to interested buyers starting on March 29 for $1,018 a pair.
