(AllHipHop News) What began as a bizarre news story in July has now completely taken over social media once again. Last night, for the first time, Megan “Thee Stallion” Pete publicly named Tory Lanez as the person accused of shooting her in the feet.
Lanez (born Daystar Peterson) was arrested on July 12 after an incident in Hollywood Hills, California involving Megan and others. The Canadian rapper/singer was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
Reports claimed Megan was a victim in the situation. Up until recently, the “Savage” performer would not say exactly who allegedly shot at her that night. She later wrote on Instagram, “I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed.”
Over the last several days, rumors and conspiracy theories began circulating online that questioned if Megan was telling the truth about the incident with some people demanding she name the shooter. The 25-year-old Texas native finally did just that on Instagram Live.
After uploading a now-deleted IG photo earlier this week where she showed the injuries to her foot, Megan told her side of the story on Thursday night. She said, “Yes, this n*gga Tory shot me. You shot me and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and sh*t. Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand.”
Thee Stallion added, “If you really want to tell the motherf*cking truth, I tried to save this n*gga. Even though he shot me, I tried to spare him. And y’all motherf*ckers are not sparing me. That’s crazy. That’s f*cked up… Y’all asking where people at, why nobody saying nothing? Ask them why they’re not saying nothing?”
Reactions to Megan The Stallion’s revelation took over Twitter as “Tory” quickly became a top trending topic on the platform. Some users defended Megan while others accused her of being a “sn*tch.”
The mixture of compassion and vitriol directed at Meg led to heated debates online. Her supporters pushed back on the “sn*tch” narrative by pointing out that she was the victim in the situation, not a possible co-defendant. However, detractors still expressed doubt about her sincerity.
According to reports, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office is reviewing the shooting case as the Los Angeles Police Department further investigates. Tory Lanez could possibly face additional assault charges.

Tory watched Megan get slandered up and down, get turned into a meme and didn’t even admit to his faults. He harmed her and had the nerve to go radio silent when he could’ve owned up to his s###. But “Protect Black Women” huh?

Dont ever fix your dusty ass mouth to talk about “snitching” when your job is reporting and telling on n##### DAILY.

Important. Even in the moment of being in danger herself, Megan, like many other Black women still had to consider the safety of everybody else *including* the safety of her abuser.

Why are people acting like they didn’t know Tory shot Megan?

“If I was in Megan’s position” …ok but you wasnt .. and I pray no one experiences that. Stop telling her what she should have done. She’s just relayed her trauma to us.

If you follow Tory Lanez, unfollow. If you listen to him on streaming platforms, stop. If you have subscribed to anything he’s put out, unsubscribe.
Social media is about impressions. If you really want to do something, don’t troll. Just stop supporting.

If Taylor Swift or ANY non-Black women was on IG live talking about being shot by Tory Lanez the world would stop. His career would be finished. NOBODY would dare joke about it. Every pub would cover it and he wouldn't be safe. Good thing for him he only shot a BW.

I’m disgusted at how easy Black men can be violent towards Black women. Would he have dry shot a non-black woman in the foot? It’s also telling that Megan was too scared to seek any sort of immediate justice because of the fear of additional police violence towards her and Tory. https://t.co/IIvBq4gEeP

Megan Thee Stallion every week low key has been reading us bits from her book “I’m Snitching but I’m Not Snitching” but today she finally made it to chapter 20 and has confirmed it was Tory Lanez.. At the end of the day it’s snitching but I don’t blame her.. she’s not a gangster

Tory Lanez ain’t been this quiet the entire quarantine….. speak n####

N##### had a lot to say about a harmless WAP video but have been disturbingly quiet about Tory shooting Megan. Their loyalty always lies with controlling women and never protecting them. “Protector” my ass.
