Megan Thee Stallion seemed to respond to a new Drake and 21 Savage track that accuses her of lying about being shot by Tory Lanez.
As Teen Vogue previously reported, Megan Thee Stallion has spoken about the gun violence she endured in, previously appearing on CBS Mornings back in April to discuss being shot in the feet, allegedly by Tory. As Buzzfeed notes, Tory has been charged with felony assault for the July 2020 incident, and while the trial was expected to begin earlier this year, it has been postponed until December. Tory has denied the allegations.
On Friday, November 4, Drake and 21 Savage released a joint album and the single, “Circo Loco” appears to reference Megan. As noted by Buzzfeed, the single contains a line which goes: “This b*tch lie ‘bout getting shot but she still a stallion / She don’t even get the joke but she still smiling.”
Megan seemed to allude to the single in a tweeted response. On Friday, November 4, she wrote, “I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak *ss conspiracy theories in bars to my name.”
She continued, writing, “Stop using my shooting for clout…since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot.” People attack me y’all go up for it , i defend myself now I’m doing too much … every time it never ends and this did NOT happen until I came out and said I got shot … y’all don’t fwm okay cool f*ck it bye.”
In a statement given to Pitchfork, Megan’s attorney Alex Spiro said, “Despite the irrefutable evidence that Megan was a victim of gun violence, the ignorant continue to support her attacker.”
During her appearance on Mornings, Megan detailed the July 2020 events, saying that it had started as a small argument between herself, Tory, her former friend Kelsey Harris, and Tory’s driver/security. “It was an argument because I was ready to go and everybody else wasn’t ready to go. But that’s, like, normal friend stuff,” Megan said. “Like, we fuss about silly stuff all the time. But I never put my hands on anybody. I never raised my voice too loud. Like, this was one of them times where it was, like, it shouldn’t have got this crazy.”
