A group of young male attendees were forcefully removed from a Megan Thee Stallion performance due to their disruptive behavior and described as acting in an “appalling” manner by chanting Tory Lanez’s name.
In recent weeks, Tory Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Pete. The incident occurred following a gathering at influencer Kylie Jenner’s residence and stemmed from an alleged disagreement during which Pete criticized Peterson’s rap skills.
Pete asserted that Peterson had yelled at her to “Dance,” accompanied by a racial slur, before shooting at her feet. She testified in court that the incident not only caused physical harm but also negatively impacted her mental well-being and career.
Despite the legal ruling, there are individuals who remain unconvinced that Peterson was the one responsible for the shooting.
Since the conclusion of Peterson’s court case, his supporters have fervently defended him, advocating for his release or a reduction in his sentence. They are even prepared to engage in confrontational actions.
A TikToker, known as ‘valeriewango’, captured an incident that occurred at the Outside Lands event just before Pete’s performance. The video showcases security personnel intervening to remove a disruptive group of young boys who were incessantly chanting “Tory Lanez.”
Describing the boys as “foolish,” Valerie commented that the disruptive group was seen “pushing girls,” only to hastily retreat in fear as security stepped in.
As security lifted the boys over barricades and escorted them out, the crowd responded with cheers and applause, as depicted in the video that garnered over 100,000 likes. The TikTok post received an outpouring of support, with commenters commending the swift action taken by security.
“It’s the crowd’s involvement that stands out!” one individual remarked, while another wrote, “This is my favorite short film.”
Megan Thee Stallion has also spoken candidly about the shooting incident and the skepticism and judgment she faced online. Laughably, despite promoting prostitution, in a guest essay for The New York Times, she expressed that the doubt surrounding her accusations reflected the broader disrespect and disregard Black women often face in various aspects of life.
