On Instagram Live, the Atlanta rapper had some choice words for anyone who tried to victim-shame Megan after being shot by Tory Lanez in July 2020.
“Yall n-ggas out here shooting bitches and aint nobody gone say nothing? I’m the only n-gga in the whole rap game that’s gonna say something? Ok, cool,” Soulja Boy said.
He then took aim at Tory Lanez, calling the convicted felon a “bitch.”
“Well, Tory Lanez you a bitch. You a bitch n-gga on me,” he continued. “Yall watched this n-gga shoot this bitch and everybody said, ‘He aint do it.’ Man, fuck yall lame ass n-ggas.”

In a second video, Big Draco brought the smoke to Tory Lanez claiming that his career was “trash.”
“You want to shoot bitches in the feet n-gga? You’s a pussy n-gga,” Soulja Boy said. “And when you get from jail n-gga you know where I’m at. You got a problem n-gga I’ll beat your bitch ass n-gga. Don’t never rap over none of my beats, don’t never freestyle over none of my beats. You trash n-gga. Your music trash. Your career trash. Your whole life trash.”
The three counts were felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
During the trial, Megan Thee Stallion testified that Tory had offered her $1 million to cover up the incident with her silence.
In response to the guilty verdict, fans of Tory Lanez have established several petitions to appeal his conviction in connection to the shooting.
The petition with the most signatures, launched on the same day that Tory Lanez was taken into custody, now has over 50,00 signatures with a goal to reach 75,000.
“Tory Lanez was found Guilty of all charges and it is a true miscarriage of justice!” petitioner Yasin Touré wrote. “The state did not prove that Lanez undoubtedly committed any crime. Reasonable doubt loomed over a 10-day trial as the prosecution was unable to show us that there were not alternative explanations of the events. A circus of speculation, insufficient evidence, inconsistencies, and drunken memories left us without much moral certainty of any truth.”
Tory Lanez faces up to 22 years in prison and deportation to Canada, the country of his birth.
