Megan Thee Stallion has been known to vocalize her disdain for addressing personal issues or “beef” between other artists on the internet, but the recent release of DaBaby’s song “Skat” featuring Tory Lanez took Meg by surprise. According to people.com., the argument began when several fans pointed out that the 29-year-old retweeted a post that made light of Megan getting shot. “I guess @DaBabyDaBaby and @torylanez cool now bc they both shot somebody and don’t have to do no jail time,” the tweet read. However, the “Suge” rapper said the repost was unintentional, pointing out a possible glitch with his account.

Despite DaBaby’s claims that this repost had something to do with his Twitter account going wrong, I do think it’s fair to question why he would decide to publicly support a man that’s harmed a woman he’s supported in private, according to Megan Thee Stallion. This is surprising since Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby have collaborated on numerous tracks that have gained them both immense popularity, but it seems that everything is often not what it always appears to be.

Although Meg didn’t publicly tag DaBaby in her response to him defending the mistaken repost, it was clear that she wanted to address the situation and let the world know that what happened to her should never be played with.

On Twitter she stated, “Support me in private and publicly do something different…these industry men are very strange. This situation ain’t no damn ‘beef’ and I really wish people would stop down playing it like it’s some internet s- for likes and retweets.” After enduring a traumatic experience of getting shot and dealing with the public scrutiny, Meg is done with letting anything slide when it comes to who truly supports her.

Megan Thee Stallion tweeted that “Justice is slow … as we’ve all seen … back to my good day” which hints that her current legal battle status is still ongoing between her and Tory Lanez. We can all hope that she soon receives the peace, closure, and justice that she rightfully deserves.
