Lil Nas X took to YouTube on Sunday with a tongue-in-cheek ‘apology’ to critics over his newly-unveiled footwear line, Satan Shoes.

The musician, 21, who titled the clip Lil Nas X Apologizes for Satan Shoe, was blasted for releasing his much-talked-about design, which contains human blood in the soles of the items. 

‘I just want to come forward and say…’, the Atlanta native said, before the clip switched to a lap dance scene from his video for his new single Montero (Call Me By Your Name) – which has also been slammed for its ‘Satanic’ themes.
