Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk recently released a limited edition skateboard infused with his own blood. The Tony Hawk x Liquid Death “Blood Boards” manufactured only 100 pieces and was reportedly sold out within 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, Lil Nas X fans drew immediate comparisons of the situation with the rapper’s infamous “Satan Shoes.” Earlier this year, the Montero (Call Me By Your Name) hitmaker launched a limited edition shoe collection that was made using a drop of his blood.
However, the rapper received criticism from the online community for infusing blood in his product, contrary to the overwhelming reaction to the skateboarder’s blood-infused deck.
Following the launch of Tony Hawk’s skateboards, several Lil Nas X fans took to social media to express their disappointment about the reception. The Grammy Award winner also took to Twitter to share his opinion on the situation:
“Now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?”
In addition to his Twitter statement, Lil Nas X also commented on the skateboards using the phrase 'Nah he Tweakin' on Instagram. This led to the expression turning into a viral social media phenomenon within a few hours.
Besides taking over Instagram, netizens also decided to share a barrage of hilarious 'Nah he Tweakin' memes on Twitter:
As the online community continues to react to the viral expression using many memes, it remains to be seen if Tony Hawk will address the ongoing situation and respond to Lil Nas X’s comment.
