Lil Nas X controversy

At the end of March, famous songwriter Lil Nas X, known for his song “Old Town Road”, came out with a pair of custom shoes nicknamed “Satan Shoes”. The shoes feature the Bible verse Luke 10:18 which mentions Satan’s fall from Heaven. The shoes come decorated with a pentagram pendant. The shoes tie into the music video for the song “Montero” which shows Lil Nas X sliding down a pole into Hell where he meets Satan. After their release rumors spread that they contain a single drop of human blood from the makers in the soles of the shoes. Since the shoes sport a Nike symbol, people planned to boycott Nike for their involvement. Nike has since sued the makers for infringement and declared that they have no relationship with either Lil Nas X or MSCHF.
