If you don’t want to be annoyed today, it might be best to avoid reading Instagram comments. Chances are, if you do, you’ll see “nah he tweakin” posted everywhere.
Why is everyone posting “nah he tweakin”? It has to do with shoes, blood, and skateboards, reports WPST.
Long story short, earlier this year the rapper Lil Nas X debuted a limited edition “Satan shoe” that literally had a drop of his blood in the soles. While the shoes sold out, Lil Nas X received a ton of backlash for the product, with some online outraged about the blood and design of the shoe, which featured an inverted cross.
Skip to yesterday where Tony Hawk announced he is selling a $500 skateboard infused with his blood in the paint. But unlike the blood shoes Lil Nas X released, Hawk has seen virtually no backlash for his blood-infused product. As Lil Nas X pointed out on Twitter:
now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?

Lil Nas X then also posted a comment on the Rap Instagram post that had asked if everyone was going to be “rocking with” the skateboard. Lil Nas X’s comment? The now infamous, “nah he tweakin.”
That comment has now been copied by other IG users and trolls and posted as a reply on most celebrity IG posts you come across.
Blood and trolls. It’s just another day on social media.
