Tip Harris, the rapper-actor most prominently known as simply, “T.I.”, weighed in on the latest developments with fellow musicos Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez.
The man behind Atlanta hip-hop anthems such as “Big Sh*t Poppin”, “Live Your Life”, and “Whatever You Like”, appeared furious in his reactions to Megan’s somewhat-anticipated bombshell – Tory Lanez shot her in the foot…deliberately.
Upon viewing Hot Girl Meg’s Instagram livestream, T.I. exploded via Instagram Live stating, “How the f— you shoot a girl? In a bikini? What the f—-? That’s crazy.” I’m not saying she would lie. I’m not callin’ anybody a liar. I’m just sayin’, I can’t imagine — that shit is unimaginable… I don’t have no words. I just waitin’ on the whole story. I need to hear everything.”
Harris continued, “Man, Tory, you need to say somethin’, bruh. C’mon, clear this — you need to say something, bruh. You gonna have to speak to this. You gotta say something, bruh. This shit lookin’ bad.”

News initially circulated that Megan’s foot was injured by glass shattered by the discharge of a gun fired by Canadian rapper, Tory Lanez. Meg clarified the night’s events in an Instagram live post stating, “Yes … Tory sh*t me. It’s not that I was protecting anybody, I just wasn’t ready to speak.”
Citing fear and current tensions with law enforcement as her rationale for remaining mum, she’s now telling her story. The rapper said when the officers arrived she was scared if she said what really happened things could have escalated with the current state of the country and black people with police. The rapper continued to repeat she didn’t tell the officers anything because she did not want to die, also citing she was attempting to spare Tory, even though he fired shots at her.
Megan’s words led to an outcry of public support and the hastag “#protectblackwomen” trended all over social media being shared by celebrities and their fans all the like.
