Kelly, a Conservative TV anchor, took to Twitter on April 4th to tweet a photo of Lil Nas X performing at the recent Grammys award show. Along with the photo Kelly tweet’d out, he wrote the following caption:
“‘Lil NAS has a BIG PROBLEM (And so does America)—-knock yourself out NAS. You’re a little FOOL with zero talent!!!!”

Rapper Lil Nas X eventually caught wind of Kelly’s tweet, quote re-tweeting Kelly with the following:
“damn greg all i did was wear a crop top this time”

But while Lil Nas X seems to be poking fun at Kelly’s comments, the Disturbed singer got involved with a more forward tweet. The tweet that came from the Disturbed singer is in reply to Lil Nas X’s quote re-tweet; coming at Kelly, Draiman criticizes the TV anchor for his comments and champions Lil Nas X to be himself.
The tweet from the Disturbed singer reads as follows:
“News flash @gregkellyusa, artists have been doing things like this for decades. Not sure why it bothers you when @LilNasX does it. Don’t like it? Don’t watch. You be you @LilNasX”

That’s awesome of Draiman to come to the defense of Lil Nas X! We think Lil Nas X embodies a great metal ethos in his art and life.
