Megan’s Law, 1996, requires law enforcement authorities to disclose “information about registered sex offenders when required to protect the public.”

The father of Megan Kanka, whose horrific death eventually led to Megan’s Law, is considering legal options against Megan Thee Stallion for using ‘Megan’s Law’ in the lyrics.

According to TMZ, Richard Kanka, the victim’s father, using the memory of his daughter to score points in a rap beef is insulting.

Seven-year-old Megan Kanka was raped and murdered by a neighbor. The neighbor, 33-year-old Jesse Timmendequas, was a registered sex offender with two convictions for sexually assaulting young girls.

However, the Kanka family and the neighborhood had no idea that a threat to their innocent young daughters’ safety was living among them.

On Friday, July 29, 1994, Timmendequas lured Megan into his house by offering to show her a puppy. He strangled Megan to death after rapping her.

After a grueling trial, the Kanka family lobbied for authorities to warn local communities about sex offenders in the area. Their efforts eventually led to the passing of Megan’s Law, signed by President Clinton in 1996.

To have lost a child in such a brutal way, Richard Kanka says that using his daughter’s name in such a graphic manner was highly distasteful after the pain his daughter and family felt.

Although Megan Thee Stallion is yet to respond to comments from either the Kanka family or Nicki Minaj, whom many believe was the target for the ‘Megan Law’ line in the hit song, Diss.

“These hs don’t be mad at Megan. These hs mad at Megan’s Law,” Thee Stallion rapped.

Fans quickly made the connection between the lyric and Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, who is a registered sex offender.
Petty pleaded guilty to a first-degree rape charge after a 16-year-old girl accused him of sexually assaulting her at knifepoint in 1994.

Nicki Minaj went on a rampage on X and has since released a counter diss track, ‘Big Foot’, seemingly referring to the Tory shooting.

Although many say the lyrics have brought awareness to the law, Megan Kanka’s father finds that his late daughter’s name being brought up in the profanity-filled song is offensive.
