Megan Thee Stallion’s growing fanbase — sometimes referred to as “hotties” — is coming to her aid. On Thursday (July 16), not long after Tory Lanez was accused of being responsible for shooting Meg in the foot, Twitter blew up with sympathetic (and often hilarious) tweets defending the “Girls In The Hood” rapper.
News Lanez had been arrested in Los Angeles following some kind of argument started making the rounds on Monday (July 13) but by Wednesday (July 15), Meg (who was in the car at the time of the arrest) apparently felt compelled to iron out some of the details.
“On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime against me and done with the intention to physically harm me,” she wrote on Instagram. “I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets.”
Meg never said Lanez was behind her injuries.
But according to Page Six, Meg was outside of the black SUV they were riding in when Lanez fired multiple shots.
“Tory fired the shots from within the vehicle while Megan was outside trying to leave,” they reported. “There is video and the police are investigating. This is a case of a man physically harming and abusing a woman.”
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson wouldn’t confirm if there was video submitted in the investigation but did explain it any videos would “not be released until the case goes to court in order to protect the integrity of the case.”
The spokesperson added, “The detectives are seeking information regarding the shooting involving Daystar Peterson, and the investigation is still ongoing. I’m not privilege to what the detectives have right now.”
Whether Lanez is a suspect is irrelevant to Meg’s fans. They came out in droves to support her and offer to “handle” Lanez if he indeed do the crime.
Check out some of the reactions below.
