Tory Lanez attended a hearing for the Megan Thee Stallion felony assault case in Los Angeles on Tuesday (April 5), but it didn’t go as smoothly as he presumably hoped. The Canadian artist ended up being remanded by the judge until he can come up with $350,000 in bail money.
Multiple tweets from Lanez were determined to be in violation of the criminal protective order set against him. After roughly an hour of arguments, Judge David Herriford found Lanez’s social media activity had targeted Megan Thee Stallion, so he decided Lanez has violated the terms of the legal agreement.
The tweet that sealed his fate was posted on February 23 and read, “Good D*ick had me fucking 2 best friends … and I got caught … that’s what I apologized for … it’s sick how u Spun it tho.”

Judge Herriford added an additional condition to Lanez’s release, barring him from mentioning Megan Thee Stallion in any way, shape or form. The trial is expected to get underway on September 14 when both parties are expected back in court.
Lanez has maintained his innocence since July 2020 when the shooting took place. But Megan posted text messages from Lanez apologizing, which (as mentioned above) he said was about sleeping with Megan’s best friend — not shooting her.
Twitter, of course, has exploded with reactions to the judge’s decision. In fact, Tory Lanez is currently a trending topic, with many roasting the DAYSTAR singer for his predicament. As one person wrote, “Make no mistake about it. Tory Lanez got what he asked…I mean BEGGED for. He and his 4 Horsemen would not stop. Publicly conducting a social media smear campaign while violating a protective order. Let’s not forget about that music video. Stop Fck’n with Black Women!”

Don't worry. One of Tory Lanez misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Black woman hating hip-hop peers will bail him out. https://t.co/N6OQ7GUAoD

I can’t stand Tory Lanez not even because he shot Meg, but because he then decided to start the nastiest ongoing smear campaign against her. And a result, Meg is relentlessly attacked by a buncha other troll sized miscreants who only support him because he harmed a Black woman
