Megan Thee Stallion. Tory Lanez. When I tell you the Internet doesn’t miss nothin’? It’s been roughly a month since the wee hours shooting fiasco that took place between the rap star couple in the Hollywood Hills that left Meg hospitalized for foot wounds.
Megan the Stallion made two Instagram videos giving her account of the night across that time window. The first: a testimony of her wounds and trauma; dispelling the notion that her injuries were the result of mere broken glass. The second: a direct accusation of singer, Daystar Peterson, aka Tory Lanez in sh–ting her after a heated argument that took place in the SUV they were riding in along with two others. According to Megan, she and a close friend made attempts to flee a hostile environment peaceably and instead, found herself on the receiving end of gunfire.
T.I. took to Instagram Live to share his thoughts on the ordeal and came off appalled at the possibility that Tory Lanez, as Hot Girl Meg alleges, shot her. The T.I. vs TIP rapper and actor opined, “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 [is] lookin’ bad.”

T.I. wasn’t the only celebrity to voice support for the Megan. Critically-acclaimed actor Michael B. Jordan, star of the Creed franchise, Fruitvale Station and Black Panther’s “Killmonger,” tweeted, “Meg I admire your courage and applaud you for speaking up. We must Support Black Women, Protect Black Women, and Believe Black Women.”
Academy-Award winning actress Halle Berry, who’s wide-ranging body of work in Hollywood has been anchoring films since the early 90s, unleashed a tirade of support for black women via Twitter, “Peace. Protection. Respect. For ALL Black Women. ALWAYS. @theestallion We stand with you. F**k this sh**. #ProtectBlackWomen.”
Word. So just this weekend, former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson gave his always-unfiltered thoughts on the situation. He tweeted, “Ladies, if you date a man who coined the term “Demon Time,” and get shot during Demon Hours, be accountable for your stupidity. #Toreylanez.” Instagram account The Shade Room had an image capture showing ToryLanez liking Johnson’s tweet.
‘Victim Blaming’ anyone?
‘Demon Time’ is an Instagram Live phenomenon that features Women, largely exotic dancers displaced by the pandemic, providing a virtual strip club experience for patrons who pay via CashApp or OnlyFans. Tory Lanez popularized a version of his own titled “Quarantine Radio.” Lanez was temporarily banned from the social media platform for the content.
Some suggest that the image shared by The Shade Room was photoshopped as it would be fairly self-incriminated to like a post that would hold Megan responsible for the incident. At this point, Tory Lanez hasn’t issued a verbal response to the allegations of any sort and has only been spotted in public once thus far; at a McDonald’s in Orlando, Florida.
