Lil Nas X, gay icon of the highest order and lap dancer of Satan, is heading to court. Why? Well, it has to do with the whole Satan lap-dance thing. Not the way that you would think though. No, this has to do with Lil Nas X’s custom Nike Satan shoes. You know, the ones that actually had blood in them and were covered with all sorts of devil iconography?
Yeah, well, the gay icon got sued by Nike over copyright infringement. Nike didn’t give Lil Nas X permission to make the customs and don’t want their brand associated with it. Now, they’re going to court to figure out that thin line between making customs and the copyright that goes with it. After all, plenty of people have gotten custom shoes before, but, well, few have gone the level of Lil Nas X.
So what does this mean for the gay icon? How does the internet feel about Lil Nas X heading to court? Well, there’s #FreeLilNasX happening, so let’s take a dive in there first.
all jokes aside i can’t believe i might be going to jail. who’s going to make mildly funny tweets about being gay while i’m away

He can seriously go to jail for this?!
So there is a chance that the rapper may be going to jail. Yikes.

Gen Z is ready to throw down for Lil Nas X, but, like, with what they can afford on their salary.

You’re thinking of Phoenix Wright school of law
That’s not how the law works.

Don’t be a meanie
Hopefully, it’s just a fine or something. Or, hey, all charges dropped.

That’s one way to handle things
It sounds like people are planning a jailbreak.
“so what are you in for?”
“s-selling customized nike shoes with human blood”

What’re you in here for?
It’s definitely something to tell others if he does (hopefully not) go to jail.

The people’s language
And the gay puns have started.
They really out here trying to put Nas in jail for some shoes. Nike isn’t just being racist, they’re being homophobic. Let’s put the CEO of Nike in jail for using slave labor in China. #FreeLilNasX pic.twitter.com/5Fuvx8jQxs

That sounds like a plan
Maybe we should put the CEO of Nike in jail.

Seriously. Isn’t this a bit much? You stopped the sale of the shoes!
