Lil Nas X Boycotted By Country Fans
Wrangler’s collab with rapper Lil Nas X gets boycotted by country fans
For those who didn’t know, country fans take their jeans seriously — very seriously.
Case in point: The company Wrangler came under fire this week after launching a denim collaboration with rapper Lil Nas X, which is inspired by his hit song, “Old Town Road.”
Fans have started boycotting the American manufacturer, claiming “true cowboys” would never wear the new duds — or listen to Lil Nas X.
“This is how you lose customers,” wrote one person on Instagram.
“Went from cowboys to rappers,” another said.
Those who support the collab have called the outrage “racist” — with some social media users saying it’s only coming from “white people” and “rednecks.”
“You ppl are talking as if wrangler only make clothes for the ones who live that ‘cowboy’ lifestyle, grow tf up! there’s money to be made out here,” wrote one Instagram user.
