Days after his "Satan Shoes" controversy grabbed headlines across the globe, Montero Lamar Hill, aka Lil Nas X, seems to have landed in hot water yet again after footage of him at an alleged "COVID party" recently surfaced online.

The 21-year-old "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" hitmaker was a mainstay on the Twitter trending page over the last few days, thanks to his collab with MSCHF on a customized pair of Air Max '97 Satan-themed shoes.

The storm surrounding this controversy barely settled before a video featuring Lil Nas X at a large gathering that was termed a "COVID party" by social media began doing the rounds on the internet.

The party that Lil Nas X attended was believed to be in celebration of American singer Austin Mahone's 24th birthday. A bunch of TikTokers, including Quen Blackwell, were reportedly present at the event.

In a viral clip that has been circulating online, Lil Nas X can be seen dancing with Quen Blackwell and a large group of people as his song Montero plays in the background.

The clip invoked the ire of the internet as there were no masks in sight. There were also reports that there were signs being put up at the party which read "No Social Media."

In light of these concerning developments, many Lil Nas X fans expressed disappointment over his recent actions and took to Twitter to call him out over the same.
