So of course, , and the hitmaker made sure to fully commit to his vision.
The Old Town Road chart-topper shared his period-inspired costume to Instagram on Tuesday in a video, which panned around from a prop inflatable vulva with a string hanging from it to the star, who was strutting down the road holding the other end.

‘This is so wrong,’ complained one follower, adding: ‘You don’t even know wat we go through every month just gone laugh at our pain [sic].’
‘I enjoy this look but the fact that you personally have never experienced the stigma, shame or pain involved with having a period makes me pause and think……. But why though?’ asked another.
‘I gotta say, I don’t think you’d want to BE a period if you could experience a period. Believe me, it ain’t no walk in the park!’ chimed in someone else.

‘Like this is a big taboo for a lot of people (women, men or everyone else),’ they argued.
