Meg Thee Stallion Fans Boycott Tory Lanez New Album After Shooting

The drama between Meg Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez continues after Lanez dropped his newest album ‘DAYSTAR’ on September 24th. 

You may remember that in July, the rap superstar, Meg Thee Stallion was shot in the foot after a confrontation with Canadian rapper, Tory Lanez. Meg Thee Stallion quickly accused Lanez of being her shooter when she took to her Instagram live to publicly call him and his publicists out. Lanez and his team have denied all allegations brought against him on that fateful night when Meg was shot in her feet. Lanez was later arrested and charged with “possession of a concealed weapon but has not been charged in connection with the alleged shooting,” according to CNN, but is still under investigation and is set to be seen in court on October 13th. 

The Saga Continues

While nothing has come of the incident thus far, new drama between the two has sparked when Tory Lanez released a new album titled ‘DAYSTAR’ this past Thursday on September 24th.

Throughout the album, Lanez refers to the accusations brought against him in his lyrics. In the song ‘Queen and Slim,’ the rapper says “I wasn’t the wrong one that night, you was just too drunk to even see it.” And in his song ‘Money Over Fallout,’ Lanez directly refers to Meg Thee Stallion when he rapped, “How the f**k you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?”

Twitter Reacts

Twitter did not skip a beat and was quick to jump to Meg Thee Stallions defense. Many people believe her side of the story and are tired of listening to Tory Lanez deny the allegations instead of owning up to them. Her fans are standing by her and refusing to listen and support Lanez and his new album.

#WeBelieveInYouMegan

Many are even encouraging everyone to stream Meg instead, claiming the album release day as ‘Happy Meghan Day’ to take the attention away from Lanez’s album. Her fans are posting appreciation pictures and calling out her amazing year of success despite the shooting. The hashtag #WeBelieveInYouMegan began trending on Twitter.

#1 On Apple Music

Despite the allegations brought against Tory Lanez, some of his fans don’t seem to care and are steaming the album regardless. ‘DAYSTAR’ is already #1 on Apple Music, which it reached in under a 24 hour period.

Abusers Slipping Through The Cracks

People are obviously upset by the album reaching number 1. If everyone is apparently boycotting the album in support of Meg Thee Stallion and other Black women that he bashed in his music, then who is still streaming him? It brings up the sore feeling about Cancel Culture that seems to tear consumers apart. People are exhausted of canceling abusive artists only for them to squeeze through the cracks when people choose to overlook their bad behavior.

The album dropped the day of the Breonna Taylor hearing. In this anxious hearing, two of the cops that were involved in her murder were not indicted and one was only charged with ‘Wanton Endangerment.’ Not a single officer was charged with her murder, and that is not setting well with anyone hoping for Justice in Breonna Taylor’s name. People have taken to the streets to continue to protest police brutality in the name is protecting Black lives, especially Black women. ‘DAYSTAR’ felt like salt on the wound when once again, a Black woman’s story and pain is not believed nor validated.

While Megan’s fans stand firmly behind her, it is not enough to keep Lanez’s album from gaining traction and reaching #1. We will wait until October 13 to see if Tory Lanez will be charged, and if further chargers will be brought forward between now and then.
