Lil Xan has a new warning for the kids.

The rapper best known for his diss track about Xanax revealed this week that a dangerous diet of too many Flamin’ Hot Cheetos landed him in the hospital.

In a video posted on Instagram, Lil Xan showed his hospital bracelet and cautioned people to go easy on the super spicy snack.

“I just want to let everybody know I was in the hospital, not due to any drugs, but I guess I ate too many hot Cheetos, and uh it ripped, it ripped something in my stomach open, so I puked a little blood,” he said with a laugh. “We good.”

In a caption to the video, he urged his fans to “be safe.”
