Rapper Lil Nas X MOCKS Jesus and Christians by mocking the holy practice of communion.
In the Christian faith, bread is used as a symbol of Jesus’ body and wine (grape juice) a symbol of his blood.

Fox News has more on the story:
Social media users attacked what they considered to be a “demonic” new preview for rapper Lil Nas X’s upcoming single “J Christ.”
The rapper dropped an image for the song that features him as Jesus Christ on the cross while a group pulls it into place. He also attached a GIF of himself as Jesus on a golden cross that transforms into a kind of angelic armor around him.
“MY NEW SINGLE IS DEDICATED TO THE MAN WHO HAD THE GREATEST COMEBACK OF ALL TIME! J CHRIST JANUARY 12, 2024 00:00 EST BE THERE!” Lil Nas X wrote on X Monday.
Though the rapper argued that the song is “dedicated” to Christ, other rappers and commentators expressed doubt that the ordinarily controversial LGBTQ performer suddenly found Jesus.

This isn’t the first time Lil Nas X has come under fire for his anti-Christian imagery.
He previously used satanic imagery in his videos, as well as releasing shoes with holy water and blood within them.

The satanic shoes, the immoral "Montero call me by your name" clip, openly mocking God. I don't think he only does that for clout. pic.twitter.com/FoYWBJNiOh
