MC T.I. is under fire from men and women who support diva Megan Thee Stallion after she was allegedly shot in both feet by Tory Lanez.
It has been several weeks since the incident took place, and while Megan Thee Stallion has spoken about it, Lanez has been very quiet.
Rumors claimed that the Canadian star shot the femcee over cheating allegations. There were also reports that he was being deported after being arrested for the incident.
T.I.P. said that he had a conversation with Lanez about the shooting involving Megan Thee Stallion. Before sharing the content of the chitchat, T.I. spoke about protecting black women.
The reality TV star stated: “I feel like Black women are the most attacked, least protected, least defended, most vulnerable, and most exposed species on this Earth. I don’t know what the f*ck happened. I know what she says happened, but I don’t know why it happened. But I know if it did happen, that’s everybody’s responsibility to make sure that this young lady feels supported and that she knows that the community and the culture are behind her. I think that’s important. I think that’s all of our obligation and responsibilities, not even as artists, rappers, or executives in this business, but as men, as a Black man. We can’t allow anybody, myself included, to be out here goddamn letting off shots at women in bikinis. Now, I just have a problem with that.”
T.I. went on to share what Lanez said: “Listen, I don’t know, man. But, I spoke to him, and he said the sh* t didn’t happen like that. I said, ‘Well, you need to be saying something, bruh. How did it happen?’ And he said he couldn’t say anything about how it did actually happen. I told him I understood that. I said, ‘Man, you can’t expect anybody to ignore the facts that are being presented if you don’t have any other conclusive facts that can overturn these. You got to say something, bruh.’ If you ain’t going to say nothing, you can expect nobody else to. I ain’t about to just shut up when you got facts out here that say it’s a woman been shot at the hands of another Black man within the culture. We’ve got to speak out on that. We’re the f*ck n***as if we don’t.”
To my fans … I’m sorry for my silence …. but respectfully .. I got time today …… 9 PM PST .

Lanez has released an entire album, DAYSTAR, with 17 new songs, and one of the tracks is about Megan Thee Stallion.
In the song, “Money Over Fallouts,” he said that he did not shoot the Texan femcee and that he is being framed. In “Solar Drive @ Night,” Lanez seems to say that he wants the “Hot Girl Summer” femcee back, while “Friends Become Strangers” appears to address their deep connection and relationship.
