Boxer Ryan Garcia Calls Lil Nas X Out For Jesus Disrespect

Boxer Ryan Garcia hopped on social media to call out Lil Nas X for dressing as Jesus Christ and seemingly mocking the Christian faith in a promo for his new single.

“Christian family where are you??? As someone who loves God and is a Christian, I find this one of the most disrespectful and disturbing things someone can do,” he wrote.

“Even if you aren’t Christian this isn’t okay I wouldn’t disrespect someone’s belief and I’m hurt and furious at the same time. More so hurt. Pray for Lil Nas X. Although it may enrage Christians, what he is doing, we are called to pray for our adversaries. So lift him up in prayer so he can see what he is actually doing. Love God with all your heart, mind, and soul. Love one another.”

Fans have accused Lil Nas X of being a “shock jock” and of using blasphemous imagery to get views. Some believe that without the shocking tactics, his music would flop on its own.

In a post to his Instagram on Tuesday (Jan. 9), the “Industry Baby” rapper claimed that he had been accepted into the Christian school founded by evangelical conservative Jerry Falwell Sr., with an emphasis in “Christian leadership and bible studies” according to a photo of an alleged acceptance letter signed by the late Falwell himself. In his caption, Lil Nas asserted the document’s authenticity, saying that “not everything is a troll.”

In a statement shared with Billboard, a spokesperson for the university said that Lil Nas X would not be attending the school in the fall. “We can confirm that Liberty University did not issue the Montero Hill ‘acceptance letter’ posted yesterday to social media, and we have no record of Montero Hill applying to the university,” the statement read.

“Liberty University exists to glorify God by equipping men and women in higher education in fidelity to the Christian faith expressed through the Holy Scriptures,” the statement went on. “We continue to pray for America and for the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be proclaimed across this land. We welcome all to apply and join us at Liberty University.”
