Megan Thee Stallion has been one of the most outspoken celebrities when it comes to seeking justice for Breonna Taylor and her surviving family. Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American EMT, was killed during a botch police raid in Louisville on March 13.
During her Saturday Night Live performance this past weekend, Megan called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron for how he handled the case of the cops that killed Taylor. Cameron responded by saying Meg’s “disparaging comments” about him were “disgusting.”
Last night, Megan flipped Cameron’s “disgusting” remark to use it against Vice President Mike Pence. During Wednesday’s vice presidential debate with Senator Kamala Harris, the VP was asked if justice was done in the Breonna Taylor case. Pence said, “I trust our justice system.”
Megan Thee Stallion took to Twitter to comment on Pence’s answer about Taylor. The “Savage” hitmaker tweeted, “Pence’s response to the question ‘did Breonna Taylor receive justice’ was disgusting #VicePresidentialDebate.”

Three Louisville police officers served a no-knock warrant to Taylor’s apartment in connection to a drug investigation involving her ex-boyfriend. However, the suspect did not live with Taylor. Jamarcus Glover was already in custody at the time of the shooting. No drugs were found in Taylor’s home.
None of the cops were charged with murder. A grand jury convened by AG Cameron only indicted Brett Hankison on wanton endangerment charges for firing into the wall of Taylor’s Caucasian neighbors. Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove face no criminal charges. After first blaming the grand jurors for not voting for murder indictments, Cameron later admitted he did not even present a murder charge option to the grand jury.
In addition, it was later revealed that the police lied on an incident report by claiming that Taylor suffered no injuries and that no forced entry occurred that night. There were also over ten witnesses that claimed the officers did not identify themselves as law enforcement before breaking down Taylor’s door.
Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, also said he did not hear an announcement from the cops. Walker fired a warning shot at the entering police officers because he thought they were intruders. One officer was hit by a bullet, but a Kentucky State Police ballistics report does not support Cameron’s definitive assertion that Walker was the person who shot Mattingly in the thigh. The injury could have been the result of friendly fire from another officer.
