International rap star Tory Lanez finally took the fight to clear his name directly to the people. In the lengthy plea Tory said he felt he owed it to his fans, in the interest of “transparency” and “accountability,” to go ahead and speak up so they know what he’s been going through the last three months.
However, the ‘Say it” singer then went on to cast himself as the victim of the situation that wound up with him being accused of shooting rapper Megan Thee Stallion in her feet, not the one who he allegedly shot… Megan. Tory Lanez started out telling his Live viewers…
“When this whole debacle, whatever you call it, came about… the whole tine it’s like she knows what happened, I know what happened, we know what happened. What you’re saying, the alleged accusations of my name is, are not true. It’s falsified information, it’s false information and it’s not accurate information.
Tory Lanez also called himself “innocent,” yet refused to simply say he didn’t shoot Megan Thee Stallion. After promising to provide details for his viewers, Tory then went on to go over details already known to the public… information that Megan has already spoken about. But in Tory Lanez’ version to his viewers, it seems he was mostly focused on creating doubt about what Megan has publicly stated, and it also appeared he wanted to cast doubt on her motives.
He implied Megan Thee Stallion named him as the one who shot her simply because she had never dealt with bad publicity.
Lanez brought up all the inconsistencies in Megan’s account of the shooting that he could think of. He went over her admitted lies to police, EMT personnel, and hospital staff about the nature of her injury that night. You’ll remember Megan infamously told police that she had simply cut her feet on glass, not that she had been shot. In reality, these points will likely help Tory Lanez tremendously when his case comes to trial.
Lanez also let it be known Roc Nation reps called him initially and told him not to make a statement about the incident in the early days. He complied, but he wanted his fans to know Roc Nation’s request was more like a threat than anything else. He feels like the delay cost him valuable time in the battle for his reputation. So much for the notion that an independent artist in the music industry is actually “free.”
It’s really quite interesting all the things Tory Lanez has to say about that night in the Hollywood Hills, so be sure to watch. Until the next time it drips…
