CANDACE Owens and Lil Nas X entered into a Twitter war as she claimed the rapper is “destroying our youth” after dropping his “Satan Shoes.”
Lil Nas X sparked a major controversy after launching the eye-opening shoes with the apparel company Saint.
The political commentator shared her candid opinion on black representation in the media, writing: “We’ve turned George Floyd, a criminal drug addict, into an icon.
“We are promoting Satan shoes to wear on our feet. We’ve got Cardi B named as woman of the year.
“But we’re convinced it’s white supremacy that’s keeping black America behind. How stupid can we be?”
Lil Nas X collaborated with MSCHF for his devil-inspired kicks, which are set to drop on March 29th, 2021.
The specialty Nike Air Max ’97’s contain 60cc ink and 1 drop of human blood.
Only 666 Pairs were created and they will run $1,018 a piece.
Many found the sneakers to be disturbing, as fans hopped in the comments to express their confusion over the design which features a pentagram symbol.
Lil Nas X, however, sought to defend his creation from Candace, as he replied to her Twitter roast with: “Call me by your name outsold,” and in a second message, “Don’t care and ur a flop.”
The singer then shared the correspondent’s original troll and captioned it: “You know you did something right when she talks about it.”
The conservative author was not phased by the 21-year-old’s clap back, as she stood her ground and responded: “Yes. You successfully got you used by corporations to help further destroy our youth.
“Congratulations on being a pawn in a game you likely don’t even understand. We can take cheap shots on Twitter or I can welcome you to have this discussion with me publicly because it matters.”
Lil Nas X was not quite ready to back down, though, as he then shared a fake apology to his Youtube profile.
In a selfie style clip while holding the controversial Nike, he spoke to the camera: “Okay guys, I see everybody’s been talking about this shoe and I just want to come forward and say…”
A new clip cut off his feigned apology as a provocative music video of the performer appeared while he twerked and danced sexually on a demonic character.
Lil Nas wasn’t done there, as he then took shared a fake image of a sneaker labeled “Chick-fil-A,” as well as “John 3:16,” and “My pleasure.”
He tweeted: “we have decided to drop these to even the score. damn y’all happy now?”
This was not Candace’s first clash with pop culture celebrities after she previously slammed Cardi B’s Grammy performance as “degenerate.”
“There’s not a single person that can look you in the face and say that they hope their daughters turn out like you, and that has to hit home for someone like her, who has a young daughter, and I hope that it does,” she scathed on the premiere episode of her new show “Candace” on the Daily Wire.
The female rapper then came for the talk show host, as she claimed her husband George Farmer had cheated on her with her brother.

Despite Cardi’s quick decision to delete the tweets after posting, Candace taunted her, saying “too late, degenerate.”
She then promised to pursue a lawsuit against the defamation.
“It was not an idle threat,” she told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
