The jeans, which are a limited edition are a nod to Lil Nas X’s No. 1 hit “Old Town Road”; the remix of the song features country musician Billy Ray Cyrus (father of Miley Cyrus).

“Cowboy hat from Gucci/Wrangler on my booty/Can’t nobody tell me nothin’,” Lil Nas X rhymes.

Official video for Lil Nas X's Billboard #1 hit, "Old Town Road (Remix)" featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. Special guest appearances from Chris Rock, Haha Davis, Rico Nasty, Diplo, Jozzy, Young Kio, and Vince Staples.

Some country music purists and some racists alike hate to see Lil Nas X, a young black musician rocking their favorite dungaree brand, and have made it known with their intricate commentary on social media.

Lil Nas X took to Twitter to inquire about the boycott. “Y’all really boycotting wrangler?? is it that deep,” he wrote.
