Why do people comment Nah he Tweakin?
The word "tweakin" is frequently used in hip hop culture and rap to refer to someone who's high on stimulants. It's also been used to describe someone acting in an irrational way and, while we may never know, that's probably the way way in which Lil Nas X was using it.

The controversy stems from a collaboration between Hawk and beverage company Liquid Death released this week that included a skateboard deck painted using Hawk’s actual blood. The limited-edition boards have since sold out.
On Wednesday, Lil Nas X took to Twitter to comment on the similarities between his previously-released Nike Air Max 97 “Satan Shoes,” which featured a drop of human blood, and Hawk’s recent launch. The artist’s controversial shoe sparked conservative backlash and even led to a lawsuit between Nike and Lil Nas X.
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?
— nope ?? (@LilNasX) August 25, 2021
Lil Nas X then took to Instagram to express his sentiments on Hawk’s blood-infused boards, commenting on a news post published to RapTV‘s feed.
“Y’all rockin with it!?” RapTV asked in a caption alongside its post.
“nah he tweakin,” Lil Nas X responded in the comments, thus sparking a meme that has since taken over Instagram. His original comment has garnered nearly 35,000 likes so far, and led to scores of people commenting on other popular Instagram posts with the phrase “nah he tweakin.”
In addition, some of Hawk’s most recent posts have been flooded with commentators perpetuating the meme response.
Neither Hawk nor Lil Nas X has directly responded to the proliferation of the meme.
In a tweet late Wednesday, Instagram acknowledged the meme.
Yeah we tweakin, but only a little bit. We’re aware that some people are having issues loading their comments (we’re fixing that) and that some are seeing a bunch of comments saying “nah he tweakin” (what is that?). More soon! pic.twitter.com/eek6t2qE40

And then, like anything on the internet, the phrase "nah he tweakin" was adopted by the masses and now appears to be everywhere on Instagram.
Earlier this year, Lil Nas X released his controversial 'Satan Shoes,' with New York company MSCHF, which contain a drop of human blood.
For those who are squeamish, don't watch the video below, as it shows the process of Hawk having his blood drawn and then it being added into his new $500 skateboards.
But Hawk didn't receive the backlash that Lil Nas did, probably because of the whole trademark fiasco rather than the decision to add blood to the product, and Lil Nas reacted saying there were some 'double standards.'
The verified Twitter account Rap then tweeted about Tony Hawk's new boards and asked followers if they were "rockin with it." That's when Lil Nas replied to the tweet and said "nah he tweakin."
"Tweakin" is a phrase often used in hip hop culture and it refers to somebody who's high on stimulants.
It's also been suggested that "tweakin" is used to describe somebody who's acting in an irrational way.
So we can imagine when Lil Nas used it in reference to Tony Hawk and his skateboards, he was essentially saying "he's got to be joking" or "he's crazy" or "he's high."
I guess we'll never know what Lil Nas meant for sure and interpretations vary, but at least now you know what fellow Instagrammers mean when they use the phrase.

If you have been on Instagram in the past couple hours, it has been an absolute sh*t show.
If you go underneath almost any major celebrity's Instagram comments on their recent post, the comment section is filled with people spamming the phrase "Nah he tweakin."
So what does this mean? Why are people saying it? And what did poor old Dolly Parton do to deserve her being told that someone is "tweaking?"
Well, we can thank Lil Nas X for all the trolling. After all, he is the biggest troll there is.
It all started when the announcement came out that skateboard legend Tony Hawk is coming out with his own blood infused skateboard. According to Buzzfeed News, Hawk has gave two vials of blood, that will be mixed in with red painted and splattered on a skateboard that will be sold for $500.
If I'm remembering correctly, Lil Nas X did something similar a couple of months ago and got so much backlash and hate for it. The rapper released a shoe called "the Satan shoe" in collaboration with MSCHF. According to Buzzfeed News, each shoe had a drop of his blood in the soles.
But strangely enough, Tony Hawk isn't getting anywhere near the amount of hate Lil Nas X got. People were calling him a devil worshipper and were trying to cancel him.
When Lil Nas X heard about Tony Hawk's new skateboard he responded:
He also commented under Rap's instagram post about the story
Hence, the beginning of a movement. Ever since then IG users have been commenting the phrase literally EVERYWHERE AND IT WON'T STOP.

If you are unfamiliar with this expression, according to Urban Dictionary “tweaking” means “the act of not making sense or saying stupid sh*t." It’s an expression very popular among Gen Z and young people, and it’s very used on the Internet.
However, it seemed like for no apparent reason, a lot of people started commenting “nah he tweakin” on the principal Instagram pages. But, like other viral trends of the Internet, this one started with a very influential person: the rapper Lil Nas X. Here, check out why Tony Hawk has something to do with this and what all of this is about.
In March, 22 year-old black gay rapper Lil Nas X (Old Town Road, anyone?) sparked controversy after creating a pair of unofficial Nike shoes called “Satan” to promote his single MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name). The black and red sneakers were a part of a collaboration between Lil Nas X and New York-based art collective MSCHF, and were made using Nike Air Max 97s.
After this tweet, Instagram’s page @rap by RAPTV made a post about the controversy and asked if Lil Nas X was “speaking facts or nah?” and the rapper himself commented “nah he tweakin”. The comment was liked almost 20,000 times and started all this madness.

While people were hung up on the fact that human blood was used for the shoe, Lil Nas X wondered why people weren't keeping this same energy with Tony Hawk. The legendary skateboarder sold out a skateboard including Hawk's own blood. Nas X asked why the same people the came after him are quiet about Hawk's skateboard.
"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 tweeted.
Safaree, out of all people. decided to chime in on the matter. The reality star suggested that there was little outrage for Hawk's product because it didn't include Satanic imagery.
"It’s not the blood it was the whole 666 and trying to associate the devil with it,” he wrote. “We don’t need to act like we out here worshipping the devil. Let’s leave that to the KKK.”
Not the same at all…. stop reaching
God/satan aren't even real anyway, who cares
Tony hawk has his own brand…. Nas hijacked nike with no deal…. Big difference
Lol at HNHH trying to act like that wasn't the obvious difference. Y'all trying so hard to make it seem hypocritical when literally everyone was focusing on the satanic aspect back when Lil Nas first released it. Now y'all wanna pretend like the blood was the issue.
Hnhh get told what to post and what agendas to push these days, it's sad really
Safari is in a satanic industry! The evil cuts his Vzh1 check so he ca. Stfu! 666!
