• Michael J. Mitchell is seen saying "I am a man of god" throughout the video
  • The YouTuber also posted an unboxing video showing him wearing the Satan Shoes
  • Mitchell's fans reacted poorly to the unboxing video saying, "you just sold your soul"

As rapper Lil Nas X's 'Satan Shoes' court controversy, a YouTuber who did an unboxing video has come out with a follow-up "I threw the Nike Satan shoes away" video that shows him tossing the shoes into the trash.

In the eight-minute video posted on Michael J. Mitchell's channel 'A Sneaker Life' Monday, he is shown throwing away the shoes as he is "not keeping this energy around him."

"I am a man of God, God has got me where I am," Mitchell is seen repeating throughout the video. "Energy is a real thing and if you sense anything in your gut, make sure you go with it," he says.

He says he felt heavy that morning "almost like something is sitting on me," prompting him to hurl the shoes away. He thanked people who supported him saying, "I am not on those satanic devilish thing" and is "all about energy, faith, and god." Mitchell ends the video by saying he had "real anxiety" and is "glad it's gone," adding the 'real blood' in the shoes put him off.

He is also seen talking about how people reacted to the first video, posted eight hours before the second, and about comments he got like "you just sold your soul."

The Satan Shoes unboxing video garnered 485k views within 22 hours of posting while throwing them away video had 85k views within 14 hours of being put up.

Meanwhile, MSCHF creative director Kevin Wiesner told CNN that Mitchell had to throw away his shoes "because his fans had reacted so poorly to the concept."

Satan Shoes, the red and black sneakers which have already been snapped up, is a product of a collaboration between Lil Nas X and New York-based art collective MSCHF.

While Nike has denied any involvement with the product, a lot of high-profile religious and political figures like South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and the evangelical pastor Mark Burns, have come out against the Satan Shoes.

However, Lil Nas X posted a video on his official YouTube account titled "Lil Nas X Apologizes for Satan Shoe." Despite the title, the video quickly cuts to a clip from his new music video "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," showing him dancing with the devil. The video has been viewed over 1.8 million times by now.

Meanwhile, Lil Nas tweeted about the controversy.

"I spent my entire teenage years hating myself because of the s**t y'all preached would happen to me because I was gay," he tweeted. "So I hope u are mad, stay mad, feel the same anger you teach us to have towards ourselves."
