Lil Nas X gives pizza to protesters outside his concert in Boston
Throughout the end of the week, as fans waited to get into MGM Music Hall before Lil Nas X’s tour stop, a group of religious protesters amassed across the street, asking their fans to “repent and believe” with huge banners. In true Lil Nas X fashion, he took that seemingly pitiful moment and turned it into a positive and nonsensical one, tweeting: ‘Just advised my group to send you pizza this is a great promotion!
Lil Nas X updated his fans with a video of his team approaching to deliver pizza to protesters when one of the placards held up a microphone and said, ‘We thank you and appreciate you but not this time.’ The video then focused on another protester wearing a T-shirt that reportedly said Christ’s forgiveness ministries as Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Mystery of Love’ played. Update, they didn’t need the pizza though, I accidentally fell head over heels for one of the homophobic protesters, Lil Nas X joked.

Starting on November 8, Lil Nas X will go abroad to wrap up the last tour in Europe, which will reportedly end on November 17 in Barcelona, Spain.
Lil Nas X Reportedly Sending Pizza To Homophobic Protesters Outside His Boston Concert
Lil Nas X responded to the homophobic protesters by giving them free pizza, which they did not acknowledge. The ‘Montero’ hitmaker reportedly performed in Boston, Massachusetts as part of his Long Live Montero Tour, with conservative protesters massing outside the MGM Music Hall in Fenway Park to fight the LGBTQ+ symbol. Lil Nas took to Twitter before the show to announce that her group would be giving them a pizza to eat while they regurgitated scorn outside.
I just advised my group to send them pizza, this is a great promotion! Lil Nas wrote, before the update, that the protesters wouldn’t want a little free ‘za. Update, they didn’t want the pizza, however I inadvertently fell for one of the homophobic protesters. Lil Nas later posted a video of said exchange, set to Sufjan Stevens’ Mystery Of Love soundtrack from the movie Call Me By Your Name.
I can’t stop thinking about the cute homophobic guy who was protesting my concert last night. I just know we had a connection. I miss him so much man. I am nothing without him

Honestly, with the way Nas is doing marketing right now, these might as well be part of the campaign 😂
