Fans of Tony Hawk have rushed to own a piece of his DNA as his blood-infused skateboards have sold out.
The professional skateboarder was seen having blood taken from his arm, which was sterilised before being mixed into paint to coat a 100 limited edition ‘bloodboards’.
However, the stunt did not go down to well with Lil Nas X, 22, who got the phrase ‘nah he tweakin’’ trending as he reacted to the bizarre merchandise.
The phrase went so viral in fact, that even Instagram itself has used it on the platform after Lil Nas X’s stunned reaction.
Fans snapped the 100 boards up super quickly, with a portion of profits from the $500 (£364) skateboard going to anti-plastic nonprofit 5 Gyres as well as Tony’s organisation, The Skateboard Project.

Why is Lil Nas X upset with Tony Hawk?
Lil Nas X was upset because the reaction to Tony Hawk’s bloodboard was so different to his own ‘blood shoes’ which caused high controversy.
Nas had outraged fans earlier in the year after releasing his ‘satan shoes’ which contained human blood.
While the bloodboard also contains human blood, the reaction was vastly different, with fansnot lambasting Tony for the gruesome added ingredient in the paint.
Nas tweeted: ‘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 made for some other reason?’
