UPDATED 7/17: The LAPD is looking into the incident that saw Megan Thee Stallion shot twice in her foot as a possible assault with a deadly weapon. TMZ reports that detectives have opened an investigation into the case and believe Tory Lanez is their primary suspect.
Meg tweeted an update on her condition Friday (July 17) saying how she didn’t feel it cool for her situation to be turned into jokes on the Internet.
“Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own.” she wrote. “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.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Well, this is a turn.
According to TMZ and Page Six, the culprit in the “Who Shot Megan Thee Stallion” case is … Tory Lanez.
The Toronto artist allegedly got into an argument with Megan and her friend in an SUV and at some point, Megan and her friend wanted out of the vehicle. That’s when Tory opened fire from inside the vehicle, allegedly hitting Meg in the foot twice. On Wednesday (July 15), Meg shared an update stating that she was recovering and that someone was attempting to harm her.
“The police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets,” Meg wrote. “I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night.”
Twitter turned into a “Who Dun It” following the shooting, prompting both Megan’s best friend Kelsey and producer Lil Ju to post and then delete messages. Kelsey said that she was present but did not shoot Megan and Ju wrote on Twitter that Tory should “count [your] f*cking days.”
In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, “I hope y’all don’t believe he was defending her. This a bullsh*t story.”
Tory was arrested for possession of a concealed weapon and according to TMZ, mitigating circumstances are the reason why he’s not being charged with more. He was released on a $35,000 bond and is due back in court on October 13.
