Former Clemson star and soon-to-be Jacksonville Jaguars savior Trevor Lawrence is never afraid to speak his mind.
When the college football season was on the verge of cancellation due to COVID-19, he was one of the most prominent players to push for games.
Ultimately, the college football season happened and was a huge success.
This week, Lawrence stepped forward and made himself heard once more – this time in relation to Lil Nas X’s extremely controversial Satan Shoes.
On Sunday, Lil Nas X unveiled his Nike “Satan Shoes,” which were described as a collaborative effort with MSCHF, but Nike later confirmed they had nothing to do with. They were supposed to contain 66 CCs of red ink and a drop of human blood mixed with ink in the sole of the shoe.
Only 666 pairs were set to be made available.
Lawrence was not a fan of this concept.
Line has to be drawn somewhere. Smh. https://t.co/89bSqfPtyE

Thus far, Lil Nas X has not responded to Lawrence.
Lawrence’s soon-to-be wife is also extremely vocal on matters like this, but hasn’t offered her thoughts on this specific controversy.

As Lawrence’s profile gets higher and higher in the NFL, it will be interesting to see how he ultimately opts to use his platform.
Will he keep speaking out the way he has over his collegiate years? Or will he be more laid back, choosing to focus on football instead?
Time will tell.
