Megan Thee Stallion isn’t playing around with this one.
The impactful artist took to Instagram Live on Monday afternoon to thank her fans for supporting her amid the fallout from a July 12 incident involving rapper Tory Lanez in which she was apparently shot in both feet. And judging by Megan’s own words and reactions in this surprisingly emotional video, she’s clearly not interested in hearing from people who have only jokes to make about the situation.

Speaking directly to her fans in what ended up being a nearly ten-minute long video, the Houston-born rapper opened things up by saying (below):
“I just want y’all to know a bitch is alive and well and strong as f**k, and ready to get back to my regular programming. I really just wanted to get on here, and I’m smiling even though a lot of things have been y’know… making me not smile. But I’m back, and I see a lot of people painting fake ass narratives and making up stories, but I also see a lot of people being very supportive and sending prayers and I really appreciate that.”
At that point, the 25-year-old opened up about what exactly happened to her, confirming yes, she was shot in both feet — and what surgery she needed to repair those serious injuries.
The rapper continued, getting visibly more and more emotional as she told fans what happened:
“I was shot in both of my feet and I had to get surgery to get the s**t — to get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary. Oh, I didn’t think I was gonna cry. It was just the worst experience of my life and it’s not funny, it’s nothing to joke about and nothing for y’all to go and be making fake stories about. I didn’t put my hands on nobody I didn’t deserve to get shot. And thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones or break tendons. Where the bullets hit at, they missed everything, but the motherf**kers was in there.”
Wow! Kind of a miracle.
Interestingly, she then transitioned to discussing her apparent first inclination about the incident itself — to keep quiet. Though police eventually pieced together what happened, the rapper was tight-lipped at first about what went down, and she defended herself in the IG Live video for that, too.
The Savage rapper said:
“It’s not that I was protecting anybody, I just wasn’t ready to speak. Y’all take your whole life to Instagram and Twitter and make it a diary, and that’s not me. I ain’t never seen so many men chime in something that ain’t none of their motherf**kin’ business. What if your sister got shot?”

So much going on there! And such a scary incident, even if she was able to come away from it without serious, long-lasting injuries. We can totally understand the emotion here.
