A photo of Lil Nas X wearing a Magen David (Star of David) has a lot of people asking: “Is he Jewish?”

The answer appears to be no, according to his biography there is no indication of any Jewish ties to him or his family. He has also not made any statements about exploring Judaism.

We got dozens and dozens of responses in just a few minutes. Here’s a selection we picked at random. (And as the saying goes: two Jews, three opinions. The posts below do not necessarily reflect the views of us here at Unpacked.)
