Lil Nas X has once again come under scrutiny for a tweet he posted about "gays in Africa" in the aftermath of Uganda's new anti-LGBTQ law.

The Grammy Award-winning artist, who is openly gay, made the post on Wednesday, March 22, and asked, "where do the gays be in Africa i wanna come there."

The timing of the tweet, which followed the passing of the law by Uganda's parliament, has raised concerns and drawn criticism from many people, who view it as insensitive towards the gay community in Uganda.

The new law, which imposes harsh penalties, including the death penalty, for individuals who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, or anything other than male or female, has been met with widespread condemnation.

Many individuals have called on Lil Nas to be more responsible and mindful of the impact of his words on others, especially those who are vulnerable and marginalized.

This is not the first time that Lil Nas has faced criticism for his social media posts. He recently joked about transitioning, which led to accusations of insensitivity towards the trans community.

However, he has since apologized for his remarks and expressed his support and solidarity with the community.
