Lil Xan Can't Sit With Us: Rapper Hospitalized Because of 'Too Many Hot Cheetos'


  • Facebook / Lil Xan

We understand the hunger for Hot Cheetos – we’re San Antonio after all. There’s probably a study out there that says we eat more Hot Cheetos than anywhere else.

We even got a joint here that serves them on pretty much all their dishes.

But, Lil Xan, c’mon. Your real name is Diego Leanos and it's in your genes to be able to stomach these spicy snacks (pun intended).

According to his Instagram post, the rapper who will play the Aztec Theatre on Halloween, was recently released from the hospital from what he says was probably too many Hot Cheetos.

“I just want to let everybody know that I was in the hospital, not due to any drugs but I guess I ate too many Hot Cheetos and it ripped … something in my stomach open a little bit and I puked a little blood. So we good."
