2020 continues to get weirder and weirder as cancel culture has chosen to attempt to retroactively cancel Chris Brown once again, for his violent behavior to then-girlfriend, Rihanna. All of this due to Megan Thee Stallion finally pinpointing Tory Lanez as the individual involved in the incident that occurred last month.
Social media erupted last night when Megan revealed Tory’s name in attempts to finally debunk all of the chatter surrounding the case. She’s since been receiving a wave of support from fans and celebrities alike. Kehlani decided to remove Tory from the deluxe edition of her latest album “It Was Good Until It Wasn’t,” where he was featured on the single “Can I.” He is still on the album’s original release of the album but is also not present in the music video.
full transparency cuz i believe in that with my following,— Kehlani (@Kehlani) July 30, 2020
his verse is still on the song, the video is solo. new verse on the deluxe.
She explains via a tweet, “Full transparency cuz I believe in that with my following, his verse is still on the song, the video is solo. new verse on the deluxe.” She continued on to say that “I stand with women, believe women, & I love my friends. if that’s something that turns you off from me or makes you no longer support, bless you forreal you have no reason to have ever supported me in the first place.. I’m not your cup of tea.”
Other artists such as Jojo and Asian Doll also stood in solidarity with the “Savage” rapper. Jojo revealed that she decided to also take him off of her upcoming release of the deluxe edition to the album “good to know,” where he was featured on the song “Comeback.” Rapper Asian Doll also got on IG Live to call out those that are still questioning Megan’s truth as well as those that are clocking her every move. “Megan is not violent,” she says. “Megan is not an argumentative person. She’s not finna sit and argue with [nobody]. She is not gonna sit and be negative.”
Fans have chosen to not only spaz on Tory, but are directing their vitriol to other artists in the past that have a history of violating women. Recently Trey Songz has come under fire for allegations of sexual misconduct towards a few women. Singer Chris Brown is also once again coming under fire as fans are recanting his 2008 incident.
Back in 2008, Chris Brown attacked Rihanna in a Lamborghini the night prior to the Grammys. This was a result of her actions toward him after finding out that he was being unfaithful with a “work friend.”
The singer began trending on Twitter following Megan’s testimony. However, the attention was not beneficial. Rather than focusing their attention solely on Tory Lanez, fans included the 2009 actions of Chris Brown, calling for both artists cancellation.

Remember y’all cancelled Chris Brown and years down the line y’all found out that Rihanna started it. I’m feeling like this is the Tory & Meg situation.— FijiShay (@LearnFrmScuba) August 21, 2020
Fans also came to Chris Brown’s defense, suggesting people stop including the singer in situations that have nothing to do with him.
