After a series of viral tweets claimed that charges against Tory Lanez had been dropped in connection with Megan Thee Stallion’s July shooting, Meg took to Twitter on Thursday (Jan. 21) to shoot down the false reports and blast people for turning her “trauma into a joke.”
“AT THIS POINT IM GETTING ANNOYED!” she began in a series of six tweets. “STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE MF INTERNET. Imagine how I feel waking every day seeing people LIE and turn my trauma into a joke ? That whole team figures out ways to create doubt with my story every week and the media eats it up.”
In October, Tory Lanez (real name: Daystar Peterson) was charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm — personal use of a firearm — and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. He also faces an additional gun charge and that he personally inflicted great bodily injury. On Nov. 18, he pleaded not guilty to the charges in Los Angeles court.
In July, the two artists got into an argument while driving through the Hollywood Hills. When Meg exited the vehicle, Lanez allegedly shot her several times in the foot. In August, the “Hot Girl” rapper for the first time named Lanez as the individual who shot her.
Thursday’s incorrect tweets included a screenshot of a Los Angeles County court website that appeared to indicate the charges had been dropped. A reporter for The New York Times tweeted that a Tory Lanez rep said the charges hadn’t been dropped and that the next hearing date had been set for mid-February.
“I can’t wait until the MF FACTS come out!” Meg later tweeted. “Bitch you shot me AND MY STORY NOT CHANGING AND BITCH YOU GOING TO JAIL.”
