Rising rapper Lil Xan says he was hospitalized recently for eating too many Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

The rapper — whose real name is Diego Leanos — posted a video to Instagram on Monday, chronicling his trip to the hospital.

“I just want everybody to know I was in the hospital not due to any drugs. But I guess I ate too many Hot Cheetos,” Xan said through chuckles. “And it ripped something in my stomach open a little bit and I puked a little blood. So we good.”

Xan says he’s still heading on the road for a tour soon.

“Also be careful, Hot Cheetos are one hell of a drug,” Xan stated in his video caption.

This is not the first time Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have been blamed for a gastrointestinal illness; in July, a 17-year-old girl said her doctor told her the spicy snack probably contributed to her having to need her gallbladder removed.
