Artists Share Their Support For Megan Thee Stallion After Tory Lanez’s Guilty Plea In Shooting

Artists from around the music world have shown their support for Megan Thee Stallion after a jury found her guilty of shooting in July 2020.

The nine-day trial concluded yesterday (December 23) in Los Angeles, with the jury unanimously finding Lane guilty of all three charges against him: one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm , another for carrying a semi-automatic firearm. a concealed, loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and another firearm for grossly negligent discharge of a firearm.

Lanez will reportedly be sentenced on January 27 and face more than 20 years in prison, along with the possibility of deportation to his native Canada.

Since the verdict was announced, stars in the music world have shown their support for Megan, real name Megan Pete. Last night, during her residency in Las Vegas, Adele shouted out to the rapper: “Tonight, I want to wish Meg Thee Stallion a very Merry Christmas. Girl, have peace. Do what you want now, baby. I love you”.

“Sending the (((biggest hug))) (((love))) & (((peace)))) to Megan Pete,” Janelle Monáe tweeted, while Tinashe added: “Sending love and healing to @ theestallion # Protect Black Women”.

After yesterday’s verdict, District Attorney George Gascón told the court: “I would like to start by highlighting Megan’s bravery. You have shown incredible courage and vulnerability with your testimony despite repeated brutal attacks you didn’t deserve it. You faced an unfair and despicable examination no woman should ever face, and you were an inspiration to others throughout Los Angeles County and the nation.”

The rapper first accused Lanez of shooting her in August 2020, claiming in court that she had not previously identified him to the police as her attacker because tensions were high between authorities and the black community after the death of George Floyd. “At the time, we were at the height of police brutality and the situation with George Floyd,” he explained. “I don’t want to see anyone die, I don’t want to die.”

She also said that she told the police that she went to the crime scene that she turned on the glass because “people don’t believe women”, and that she didn’t think the “big club” in the music industry would believe her. .

Lanez refused to testify in his own defense during the trial, but pleaded not guilty to the charges. However, she offered an emotional three-hour testimony, in which she described her grief at having to relive the “torture” of the exchange in her quest for justice.
