Lil Nas X Had Some Thoughts On Tony Hawk’s Blood-Infused Skateboards, And Now “Nah He Tweakin” Is All Over Social Media

Here’s why “Nah he tweakin” is everywhere right now.

Earlier this week, controversy broke out over Tony Hawk‘s new line of skateboards, which are infused with his own blood and reminded people of the satanic sneakers that Lil Nas X released last spring.

The rapper launched a limited edition collection of “Satan Shoes,” in collaboration with the company MSCHF, in March. Their soles, similar to the paint coating Tony’s skateboards, contained a tiny bit of actual human blood.

Public responses to each merchandise line were different. Lil Nas X’s sneakers faced backlash from conservative leaders, including South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, on religious grounds and became subject to a Nike lawsuit for copyright infringement. Meanwhile, Tony’s skateboards, as Nas pointed out, sparked no major criticism whatsoever.

“[N]ow that [T]ony [H]awk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes?” he tweeted yesterday. “[A]nd maybe u were mad for some other reason?”

Lil Nas X also went ahead and shared his thoughts on Tony’s skateboards in the comments section of an Instagram post by Rap TV.

“#TonyHawk’s blood is being used in $500 limited-edition skateboards. Y’all rockin with it⁉️” the post’s caption read, to which Lil Nas X replied, “nah he tweakin.”

Lil Nas X’s comment sparked a flurry of others that echoed his original remark, plus a viral wave of memes that flooded Instagram and Twitter.
