She confirmed that Tory Lanez is indeed the person who shot her in the car that evening.

The Real Story

Just before hopping on IG Live, Meg took to Twitter to offer one final warning. “Lie one more time and ima quit sparing you,” she said.

Without any further delay or hesitation, she then began explaining what took place on the night of July 12.

“Yes, this n—a Tory shot me,” she says. “You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to [talk to] these blogs, lying and sh–. Stop lying!”

“I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really fuckin’ dragging it. Motherfs talkin’ ‘bout I hit this n****. I never hit you. Motherfs was like, ‘Oh she mad ’cause he was tryna fuck with Kylie.’ No I wasn’t. You dry shot me.”

In the aftermath of the incident, the Houston rapper avoided naming her assailant or getting into specifics surrounding the shooting. But she explained her rationale for staying quiet until now. 

“There’s only four mother—ers in the car: me, you, my homegirl and your security — everybody in the car is arguing,” she continues. “I’m in the front seat, he’s in the back. I get out the car, I’m done arguing, I’m walking away.

“This n—a, from the backseat, starts shooting me! I didn’t get cut on no glass! Let me tell you why they saying that. There’s a witness – when the police came… This did not happen at Kylie’s house, this happened damn near back at the house I was staying at.

“ The neighbors called the police, this did not happen at Kylie’s house, this happened damn near back at the house I was staying at. I was just trying to get home. We were five minutes away from my spot.”

“The police come. I’m scared.”

Megan continued:

“All this shit going on with the police. The police are shooting motherfuckers for anything. The police were literally killing black people for no motherfucking reason. Soon as the police tell us all ‘Get out the motherfucking car.”

The police are really aggressive. Do you think I’m about to tell the police that us black people got a gun in the car? You want me to tell the laws we got a gun in the car so they can shoot all of us?”

Black women are natural protectors

It’s heartbreaking stories like Megan’s being told countless times from women that still go unheard because individuals choose to be ignorant.

The intersection of police brutality and gun violence trigger women into a state of being natural nurturers and protective. Through the years women have been a primal source of emotional support for men.

Conversely, there is a lack of effort to reciprocate the same support for women after moments of trauma. It seems to be an innate instinct for women to protect men even when they’re in the wrong.

Survivors’ immediate reactions in the aftermath of trauma are quite complicated and are affected by many factors. Typically their own experiences, their immediate family and friends, and the responses of the larger community in which they live can alter their acute responses.

When Megan shared photos of her injuries her fans understood it was a first step in coping with what happened that night.

Despite Megan stating that she was deliberately attacked, stories started to surface as to what motivated the shooting. Many uninformed individuals painted Megan—the woman without a deadly weapon—as the aggressor 

This forced Megan to explain there was nothing she could have done to warrant being shot. 

“It’s nothing to joke about. It was nothing for y’all to start going and making up fake stories about,” Megan said.

“I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot. I didn’t do shit.” 

Women who experience any form of trauma appear to always BE overly explaining their side of the story just to feel understood. They are compelled to fight for their own lives in addition to the people who commit acts of violence against them.

Few women are burdened with heightening feelings of anxiety because they suppress their needs for the likes of others. Nevertheless, women also have to worry about saving the “reputations” of the said perpetrator so they wouldn’t be harmed in the process of telling their truth. 

Contrary to popular belief, Black women have a significantly lower chance of being believed in any instance if there isn’t evidence present.

Women seem to have to prioritize optics and put on a show over their feelings and it is simply not fair!  The perception of our experiences is always asked to be toned down or not respected when all we’ve asked is to feel safe and given the decency to be treated equally.

When will society allow women to feel healed?

Megan has dealt with a lot of trauma since she started her career, with the death of her grandmother and her mother, who was her manager late March of 2019. Unfortunately, she had to add this to the list of things she’s been through.

We just hope she evolves in the days to come. We see you, and we recognize what you are going through Megan.
