Cam’ron has come under fire for reposting a transphobic meme about Tory Lanez allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion. Less than a week after Hot Girl Meg vented about the traumatizing event becoming a source of online mockery, Killa Cam shared a joke suggesting Megan is transgender.
“Tory Lanez saw that dick and started shootn,” the meme reads. “IDC what no one say.”
Cam’ron captioned the post, “Ayoooo… Da net wins again.”
Megan was shot in the foot during an incident involving Lanez in Los Angeles on July 12. Lanez was originally arrested for possession of a concealed weapon and released on a $35,000 bond but later was accused of being the shooter.
After Megan revealed she was shot, the allegations against Lanez publicly surfaced. The Los Angeles Police Department opened assault with a deadly weapon investigation into the matter as a result.
In the aftermath of the shooting, Megan and Lanez have become sources of humor for social media. Celebrities such as 50 Cent and Draya Michele have turned it into a laughing matter, much to the chagrin of Megan.
“Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own,” she wrote via Twitter on July 17. “It might be funny to y’all on the internet and just another messy topic for you to talk about but this is my real life and I’m real life hurt and traumatized.”
Megan’s plea didn’t stop Cam’ron from providing a signal boost to a meme about the situation, but his attempt at comedy has been met with a backlash. The Dipset rapper’s post has been criticized for being transphobic and misogynistic.
Check out some of the reactions to Cam below.
Even deeper than @Mr_Camron suggesting that Megan is trans as an insult is the implication that a man should shoot her if she was.

Fuck Cam’ron for being transphobic trash and for joking on Meg. Big Love to all my Black sisters, ESPECIALLY my trans sisters. We need to be together, transphobia and misogyny hurts us ALL.

Camron sharing that transphobic post about Megan thee Stallion is EXACTLY what Black trans women were telling Black cis women. We will NEVER be afforded "femininity" and we need to stop trying to fight for it when the real problem is misogyny period.

And Camron’s post is exactly why we can’t fuck with people making jokes about trans people. They are literally being murdered. Ain’t shit funny about that.
