On Saturday, rapper Kid Cudi responds to critics over nail polish on Twitter. He announced that he had disabled comments on his most recent Instagram post. In the photo, he sports a Mandalorian helmet while brandishing a peace sign. His index and middle fingers are painted with blue and orange nail polish. Several followers took issue with Cudi’s nail polish and began flooding the comments section to express their objections. He promptly responded by turning off the comments and directing a Tweet towards his online attackers.

Kid Cudi Responds to Criticsm

Kid Cudi is no stranger to criticism. In April, the Ohio native caused a stir when he appeared in a dress for his SNL performance.  The look was inspired by the front man of Nirvana, the late Kurt Cobain. The dress resembled one Cobain wore when he appeared on the cover of “The Face” magazine in 1993.

He said, “The image of seeing Kurt Cobain in a dress was very rock ‘n’ roll to me.  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. I knew it would piss some people off, but I love that. Because hip-hop is so weird about shit.”

Consequently, the Man on the Moon rapper remains unfazed by the backlash. His self-expression and mental health take priority over the opinions of others, although some fans showed their support.  In response to positive feedback, Kid Cudi Tweeted “Thanx” and a variety of emojis to his fans.
