"Celebrities are paying to get violent rioters out of jail," Tucker said, and then began to stroll through and name all the celebs who have been paying for bail. "Rapper Lil Nas X urged his 4.7 million Twitter followers to donate to bail groups in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere. Imagine if he had used those followers instead to help small businesses destroyed by the riots he helped incite."
Nas X didn't like the implication that he was "inciting riots."

Seth Rogan, who was also named, also fired back.
