Lil Nas X apologises after joking that he transitioned

The Montero rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday with an apology to his trans fans after he joked that he had transitioned. In a since-deleted tweet, he posted a photo of a woman with a resemblance to him, writing “The surgery was a success”. After the rapper - whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill - received backlash for the joke, he admitted it went too far. “Apologies to the trans community, I (definitely) handled that situation with anger instead of considering why it was not cool. Much love to you guys. Sorry.”
