-nope (@LilNasX) March 28, 2021Chick-fil-A did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment on Lil Nas X's choice to reference the chain in his tweet. The origin of the shoe image is not known. A spokesperson for MSCHF, the company behind the Satan shoe, was not immediately available to comment on the singer's Chick-fil-A tweet. Insider has also reached out to Lil Nas X for further comment on the image.
Only 666 pairs of the customized Nike shoes will be made, and they sold out in less than a minute on Monday. Nike clarified in a statement that it was not part of the Satan shoe release.The star received mixed feedback after the sneakers were announced. The Church of Satan asked for a pair, while others, including South Dakota's Republican Gov. Kristi Noem, were shocked by the shoe.MSCHF is behind some of the internet's most controversial novelty products, Insider's Paige Leskin has previously reported, including sneakers filled with Holy Water.
After the "Satan shoe" was announced, Noem tweeted that, "we are in a fight for the soul of our nation," and Lil Nas X responded with, "ur a whole governor and u on here tweeting about some damn shoes. do ur job!" To others criticizing the shoe, Lil Nas X released a video titled as an apology that quickly cut to the singer saying "f--- it, let's ride" and giving Satan a lap dance, taken from clips of his "Montero" video.
