Lil Nas X has no time for your homophobic nonsense in 2020.

Lil Nas X, who came out last summer, showed up to the Grammy Awards ceremony in a pink cowboy outfit, containing elements of the leather scene.

His country crossover hit "Old Town Road" was one of the nights live performances.

The artist was also nominated for several awards.

This outfit unfortunately caught the attention of Pastor Troy, a fellow Atlanta rapper, who took it upon himself to share Nas' outfit on Instagram in a post that has since been deleted.

The rant, laced with homophobia, goes into detail that Pastor Troy thinks Nas doesn't deserve a Grammy award because he's gay.

Pastor Troy also described an encounter at an Applebees where he and his son were openly homophobic to a gay couple who were "kissing" and "eating mozzarella sticks."


Nas caught wind of the hateful rant.

The 20 year-old star had the most simple, perfect response.

But Nas' fans didn't let Pastor Troy get away so easily.

And Pastor Troy continues to get roasted across the internet.


Meanwhile, Nas has more important things to worry about.

Two, in fact.

And Pastor Troy, 42, is gonna continue getting worked up over mozzarella sticks and his zero Grammys.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories whenβ€”compared with nonconspiracy explanationsβ€”they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
