Lil Nas X jokes about his COVID-19 diagnosis in a series of since-deleted tweets where teased he had the ‘Omarion or Alicia Keys variant’
Rapper Lil Nas X got into a bit of hot water with a series of Tweets that lightheartedly poked fun at his COVID-19 diagnosis.
The musician, 22, recently pulled out of Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball after he tested positive for the virus.
‘COVID really sucks,’ the two-time Grammy Award winner Tweeted on Friday, adding, ‘Now that I’m sure I won’t die from COVID I will now begin making mildly funny jokes about having it.’

In yet another Tweet he seemed to compare the virus to musicians Omarion and Alicia Keys.
‘I’m not sure whether I’ve had the Omarion or Alicia Keys variant of COVID but this has not been a fun journey,’ he wrote.
The controversial star also added, ‘I only talk to people who have COVID now. U non-COVID b****es need to stfu. Us COVIDers run this s**t!’
In bad taste? The two-time Grammy Award winner Tweeted, ‘Now that I’m sure I won’t die from COVID I will now begin making mildly funny jokes about having it’

The random Tweets continued with the rapper writing, ‘COVID really sucks. Last night I was tryna watch porn then I sneezed snot all over penis lmao.’
The hitmaker also joked about celebrating his hit single ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name)’ making it onto Barack Obama’s list of favorite music of 2021.
He wrote, ‘Started running around the house in excitement when I saw this, then I remembered I have COVID lol.’
It seems the Call Me by Your Name singer may have realized that his social media musings were potentially in bad taste as the Tweets have since been deleted from the rapper’s account.
The rapper is known for making controversial remarks on Twitter. In October, the artist – who’s openly gay – wrote: ‘This gay sh** was fun at first. I miss p**** now.’
Eight minutes later he quote tweeted himself and added, ‘Nevermind he texted back.’
