Rapper Lil Nas X told a pregnant fan to “get rid of it” during an online Q&A with his 6.3 million Instagram followers.

The Grammy-winner, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, invited his millions of fans to send him questions as he responded to a select few on the social media site. One fan replied, “I think i’m pregnant…”

The “Old Town Road” singer responded with a grin and said “congratulations” before adding, “get rid of it.”

It remains unclear if the rapper was seriously suggesting that his fan “get rid” of her child or if the remark was made in jest. However, Live Action, a pro-life organization, tweeted about the “F9mily” artist’s remark, prompting a sarcastic response from the 21-year-old rapper.

“no one cares, ratio,” Lil Was X responded, promoting his latest song “HOLIDAY.”

The rapper discussed the debate between pro-lifers and pro-choicers during an appearance on the Nitty Gritty podcast last year, boiling it down to moral, legal, and religious arguments.

Pro-lifers, he said, consider a fetus “a human being and [it] therefore has rights.”

“Now I get the rationale. It makes sense in theory, but in execution, it’s just — the fetus doesn’t even know it exists,” Lil Was X concluded, adding that it’s “just weird the way they think about it like that.”
