KID Cudi shut off his Instagram comments and told trolls to “f**k way off” after he was slammed for painting his nails.
Earlier today, the Pursuit Of Happiness rapper shared a selfie on social media and put his hand on full display by flashing the peace sign.
His fingers were prominently shown in the photo – where he rocked neon orange and blue nail color.
Kid Cudi – who’s real name is Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi – wore a silver helmet that resembled characters in the Disney series The Mandalorian.
“Mando Cud,” he captioned the snap that showed off his manicure.
However, after sharing the picture, the 37-year-old rapper was met with harsh and insensitive comments from haters who did not approve of him painting his nails.
After receiving enough hate, Kid Cudi announced that he was forced to turn off the comments on his account due to the hate.
He posted an update on Twitter, saying: “Turned my comments off on Instagram.
“Seems people really have a problem w me painting my nails. I got tired of blocking so many accounts.
“I really need you to understand, if you dont like me doing this or anything I do, please dont buy my albums, don’t come to my shows.”
'F**K WAY OFF'
The lyricist concluded by urging the internet trolls to “F**k way off.”
Kid Cudi is no stranger to criticism, as he got national attention for his Saturday Night Live performance earlier this year.
In April, he shocked many fans when he wore a long floral dress while performing his song Sad People from his latest album on the famous Studio 8H stage.
The singer wore the gown to honor the life of Nirvana’s singer Kurt Cobain, who passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1994.
Kurt famously wore a floral dress on the 1993 cover of British magazine The Face just a year prior to his death.
While many people chose to fire off insults at Kid Cudi for the outfit choice, most were supportive.
“This is one of many reasons why cudi is the goat,” one person said.
FANS SUPPORT KID CUDI
Another replied: “Some people in these replies so insecure they cant handle a dude wearing a dress.”
A third chimed in: “They can’t accept a Black man wearing a dress but when a white guy does it it’s empowering and soft and aesthetic… you go Cudi.”
In response to the hate messages he did get, Kid Cudi said after his SNL performance: "This is crazy that I've stirred it up like this.
“This is wild. But if this is what I'm supposed to do, then so be it. I want to be a disrupter. I want to f**k s**t up.
“And it's cool because I'm also giving confidence to the kids and telling them to be themselves and do what they want to do.
"If you wanna wear a dress, wear a dress. Be who you are,” he urged his fans.
