Saweetie has gotten herself into some hot water over liking a tweet aimed at Lil Nas X — but she’s claimed she misunderstood the situation.
After a clip surfaced online of Lil Nas X teasing an unreleased song featuring Saucy Santana during his performance at Lollapalooza this weekend, a Twitter account (which appears to be a Nicki Minaj fan page), shared the video and made some negative remarks about the 23-year-old.
“I feel like he’s not really gay or not really that feminine. It’s so forced,” the Twitter user wrote, after which Saweetie liked the post.
According to the Icy Girl, she liked the tweet without understanding its context. She has since deleted the tweet, and said she only liked it because she thought the Montero rapper was “looking fine af.”
“He was lookin fine af that’s why I liked the video. I didn’t see the shadiness…(*unlikes*)” she tweeted.

This isn’t the first time Saweetie has been accused of dissing someone. The Bay Area native allegedly took shots at her ex-boyfriend, Quavo and Lil Baby on a track from her Single Life EP, titled “Don’t Say Nothin.”
The song contained lyrics like, “A hunnid K, please, know how much paper I be touchin’ on?/ That’s light, better check my net worth/ Post a pic in his sweatshirt, I bet it have my ex hurt/ That’s what I get for kissin’ on these frogs/ He got mad and told my business to the blogs,” which were perceived as subtle digs at Quavo and Lil Baby, who she was romantically linked to last year.
However, the “My Type” rapper quickly dismissed rumors that she was dissing the Atlanta rap stars in an Instagram Live video last December.
“Ain’t nobody dissing nobody. When I went on Caresha Please, I told y’all, whoever’s on ‘Don’t Say Nothin,’ whoever that messaging was towards, it wasn’t toward nobody,” she said. “Ain’t nobody dissing them boys. So you can kill them rumors and kill that because y’all don’t even know who I’m talking about.”
Saweetie previously shut down the speculation during her aforementioned appearance on Yung Miami’s Caresha Please podcast, where she claimed the blogs had it all wrong. However, she did admit that some of her bars on “Don’t Say Nothin’” were aimed at another unnamed celebrity bachelor.
“I saw some of the blog write-ups and they were all wrong,” she said during the interview. “Honestly, the people who I wrote that about will never see the light of day. Like, it never even got to that point of publicity.”
