megan officially names tory lanez as the person who shot her
So it's finally official.
Megan Thee Stallion, who just hit No. 1 on Billboard with Cardi B with WAP, has finally named her alleged shooter who injured her foot not too long ago. We all suspected who it was and he was already arrested in connection with it. However, until yesterday she refused to openly name the person. The wait is now over.
She said rapper/singer Tory Lanez shot her in a domestic dispute. Now Black Twitter and every other online outlet is blowing up.
It wasn't on CNN or TMZ where we first heard it. It was on her own Instagram Live that happened last night.

“Yes ... Tory shot me. You shot me and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying,” Megan said in her video to Tory. “Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand.”
She had recovered from the shooting but in multiple interviews has all but denied that Lanez was the person who shot her twice in the foot. She is not denying it anymore even though her initial reasons had to do with possible legal reprecussions.
“I didn’t tell the police nothing because I didn’t want us to get in no more trouble,” she said later in the IG live.
Of course Tory Lanez' team is not commenting about the IG live and his legal team is probably advising him to keep quiet. Although the actual shooting is still under investigation Lanez was arrested on suspicion of possession of a concealed weapon the night of the shooting. He was released on bail but hasn't met in court about that case.

This confession by Megan and the outrage on Twitter doesn't do him any favors.

This has me in TEARS. My god. Black women WHEW! We cant even fight for our own lives w/o feeling like we have to protect the lives of the people who commit acts of violence against us
Imagine a Black woman being shot and she still had the compassion to try to save a life from being shot by the police -- only for them to turn around and later lie to the press about her.— Ernest Owens (@MrErnestOwens) August 21, 2020
Tory Lanez is done.
Y'all owe Megan Thee Stallion all of her roses and apologies NOW.

Between the resurfacing of Keke Palmer’s video about Trey Songz and Megan thee Stallion posting “proof” that she was shot in both of her feet, I am tired of black womxn having to constantly prove themselves to others.— 𝐊𝐄𝐒𝐇𝐈𝐀 ♡ (@KeshiaSW_) August 19, 2020

it’s sad Megan thee stallion had to do so much to be believed. so many turned her pain into a joke. So many were quick to put the blame on her— Lord Vantablack (@KxngBajan) August 21, 2020
Again Tory's team has yet to respond. Also it seems LA County is now officially considering a felony assault charge against Tory Lanez. Of course we will update this post if and when more news arrives.
