In the clip, a googly-eyed news anchor announces the return of Ashton Rain, a fictional character that featured on Lanez’s 2021 album Alone At Prom.
Cuniff — who has extensively covered Lanez’s conviction and sentencing for shooting Megan Thee Stallion — was made aware of the clip and commented on it on X, formerly known as Twitter.
She wrote: “Hmmm. What do you think? Me or nah?” before posting a link to Megan Thee Stallion’s recently released video for “Cobra.”

A number of followers also weighed in on the video and Lanez’s general attitude towards Cuniff, with one commenting: “Does he think that if you didn’t report the story, he would’ve gotten off?”
Another said: “No amount of taunting is going to change the fact that he gotta do 10 yrs. You have maintained a level of integrity and dignity within your line of work which is difficult but I salute you for always standing on business and I look forward to seeing more of your work.”
Tory Lanez was reported to have insulted Meghann Cuniff during a court appearance in September where his motion for bail was rejected by the judge.
After being told he would not be released on bail due to his history of violating court orders and status as a Canadian citizen, the rapper reportedly shouted that Cuniff was “a googly-eyed bitch.”
“I didn’t hear it and I’m still working to see if transcript has it, but I’ve confirmed Tory Lanez chose to use his final courtroom moments to profanely insult me, calling me ‘a googly eyed bitch’ as he looked at gallery,” Cuniff wrote on X at the time. “Conflicting reports on whether he named me. A fitting end.”
Tory Lanez (real name Daystar Peterson) was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of shooting Megan The Stallion during an argument in July 2020.
Lanez has never acknowledged shooting his fellow rapper and has accused the media of enacting a smear campaign against him. He is currently residing in a state prison in California.
