Lil Nas X has apologized after facing backlash from the transgender community over a since-deleted joke.
The musician previously posted a photo of a woman who looked similar to him, writing: “The surgery was a success.”
However, social media users were quick to criticize Lil Nas X for joking about transitioning.

One person responded, “you’re a gay cis male why are you making transitioning a punchline of a joke.”
Lil Nas X then wrote at the time, “I’m literally just saying she looks like me y’all cannot be f**kin serious.”
