Lil Nas X pissed off a certain section of the Internet with his controversial “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” music video that features him descending into hell via a stripper pole and dancing on Satan’s lap.
The 21-year-old rapper, who gained viral fame with the Country hit “Old Town Road”, is sparking some more outrage by releasing custom Nike Air Max 97s with MSCHF dubbed “Satan Shoes” filled with demonic imagery and a drop of human blood.

Despite the fact that these are custom sneakers and not an official Nike release, people on the Internet are calling for a boycott of the sneaker giant.
