There may be a break in the case surrounding the recent shooting of Houston and Texas Southern University’s own “Megan Thee Stallion,” according to TMZ.com.
The internet was abuzz with conspiracy theories after Megan was shot twice in the foot on July 15. Afterward, we know how it is, Black Twitter let the memes fly. That was hurtful to Megan, and the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper let everyone know how she felt.
“Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own,” she tweeted. “It might be funny to y’all on the internet and just another messy topic for you to talk about but this is my real life and I’m real life hurt and traumatized.”

Megan was clear from the start that what happened to her was intentional, without naming anyone.
“On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me,” she announced publicly. “I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets. I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night.”
TMZ reported that fellow rapper Torey Lanez shot Megan after a dispute. Things can surely turn sour fast because shortly before the incident, both Megan and Lanez were on Instagram Live with Kylie Jenner poolside in the Hollywood Hills.
Lanez was charged after police found a gun in his SUV, but he has not been charged in the shooting.
Although Megan says she is expected to fully recover physically, to be frank, the psychological effects could be longlasting.
We hope everyone can get it together, because it seems everyone is falling apart!!!
