Lil Nas X has issued a public apology after facing backlash for his latest single, 'J Christ.' The 24-year-old artist, known for his provocative style and humor, found himself at the center of controversy due to the religious references in both the song and its accompanying music video.

In the track, Lil Nas X boldly declares he's "back like J Christ," a direct reference to Jesus Christ. The visual representation accompanying the song features him donning costumes as Jesus, Moses, and Noah. While some expected the artist to embrace the controversy, he took a more serious tone in response to the criticism.

On social media, Lil Nas X addressed the situation, acknowledging that he's not the first person to dress up as Jesus and highlighting that his intention was not to mock religion. He expressed regret for a promotional video in which he spoofed communion, stating, "I do apologize for that."

The artist went further to clarify his intentions, stating, "This is not to get everybody on my good side. This is more so to clear my own head about my own decisions. I know I messed up really bad this time. And I can act all unbothered if I want, but it's definitely taken a mental toll on me."

This public apology shows a rare, more vulnerable side of Lil Nas X, who is known for his confident and carefree persona. As the controversy continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how fans and the public will respond to this unexpected turn of events in the artist's career.
