Rapper Lil Nas X has been causing some controversy with his “Satan shoes”. In case you missed it, 666 pairs of Nike Air Max ’97 shoes will be released and each pair contains a drop of human blood, a bronze pentagram and an inverted cross design. They will cost over $1,000 a pair.
Nike isn’t part of this deal – the company that makes them bought the shoes from Nike, then made the modifications under their own label.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem reacted to the shoes, tweeting that “We are in a fight for the soul of our nation. We need to fight hard. And we need to fight smart. We have to win.”
Lil Nas X responded to her tweet, telling her to “do ur job” and quit tweeting about shoes.
Noem responded with a Bible verse.
Following the exchange, the rapper trolled haters by posting a Chick-fil-A inspired shoe, saying “we have decided to drop these to even the score. damn y’all happy now?”
