Fans pile on Tory Lanez for lame apology to Megan Thee Stallion
Fans have reacted with fury at Tory Lanez’s apology to Megan Thee Stallion, after it was revealed that the rapper blamed alcohol for a shooting incident that saw the WAP hitmaker walk away with significant injuries on her feet.
Lanez has generally kept a low profile since the incident, even though Megan has come out openly accusing him of the shooting.
According to texts seen by TMZ, the Canadian rapper texted Megan 15 hours after the shooting asking for forgiveness.
“I know u prolly never gone talk to me again, but I genuinely want u to know I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart,” he wrote, adding “I was just too drunk.”
Lanez went on to apologize again while citing alcohol as the reason for his violent behaviour.
“None the less shit should have never happened and I can’t change what did,” he continued. “I just feel horrible. Cuz I genuinely just got too drunk.”
Lanez, Megan, and another friend had spent the day partying in the Hollywood Hills one 12 July when police responding to reports of shots fired pulled them over.
When they instructed them to exit, Megan Thee Stallion had injuries on her feet. She would later reveal that she lied to the police about being shot to protect Lanez.
In response to the revelation of his apology texts, fans slated Lanez.
“Ummmm maybe you should stop drinking. You have a problem,” one person wrote while a second opined: “Boy even I get drunk but not drunk enough to shoot a beautiful black queen.”
Others questioned Lanez’s use of alcohol as an excuse.
“That’s not a good excuse buddy. I been drunk a lot in my life and it didn’t make me shot [sic] a female in da foot,” one fan posted.
