While Kid Cudi is typically viewed as a friendly and loving dude, that doesn't mean getting aggressive is off-limits, especially if people are talking s**t.

The 37-year-old gave trolls a serious warning after turning off comments on his Instagram posts for this reason.

According to Cudi, "people really have a problem w me painting my nails," so instead of blocking accounts, he decided to turn off comments. He added, "I really need u to understand, if u dont like me doin this or anything I do, please dont buy my albums, dont come to my shows. F**k way off." Well damn!

It's true, some people have dragged his colorful nails, which he showed off in the selfie below while wearing a bounty hunter helmet featured in Star Wars' 'Mandalorian' series. (It's the first picture he's uploaded without comments.)

But there are also countless fans who drop wholesome and emotional messages about how much Cudi and his music mean to them.

"Bro so glad you’re happy," someone commented this month under a video of him grilling food. "You saved my life in 2010. I love you big bro." Another wrote, "Top 5 human beings."

Cudi is just one of many hip-hop artists who enjoy painting their nails. In fact, Lil Yachty launched his own nail polish brand called Crete earlier this year. He credits A$AP Rocky with getting him interested in nails and stylish hygiene.

"I decided to make nail polish because I wanted to make something that felt more gender-neutral," he told Highsnobiety. "There might be a lot of kids who are interested in doing their nails but they feel it's too girly. So I wanted to make a paint line that felt more masculine, to help reel people in."
