Shine My Crown Read by Alexa
HOUSTON — Rapper Megan Thee Stallion went on Twitter to call out Black-owned blogs for their coverage of her.
“Black ran blogs talk the most sh-t abt me … but protect black women tho,” she tweeted.
Some folks were confused about Megan’s comments as the coverage of her has been almost totally positive. In the comments, some speculated that it might not have been the actual articles or social media posts published by the outlets that were negative — but the reader’s comments.
The most recent posts about Megan were of her enormous Lollapalooza performance.
If you love yourself, make some motherf–kin’ noise,” she yelled mid-performance. “That’s what the f–k hotties do: we spread positivity!”
Meg’s performance received high praise as she is a top-tier performer — but some of the comments made reference to the massive crown and the possibility of the spread of Covid-19 and its much more contagious variant — the Delta variant, as many concertgoers were unmasked.
Last year, the rapper wrote an op-ed for The New York Times following last year’s shooting incident with Tory Lanez. Meg faced criticism from Lanez fans and some even mocked her claims that the rapper had shot her in both of her feet.
“I was recently the victim of an act of violence by a man. After a party, I was shot twice as I walked away from him. We were not in a relationship. Truthfully, I was shocked that I ended up in that place,” she wrote.
She continued, “My initial silence about what happened was out of fear for myself and my friends. Even as a victim, I have been met with skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted.”
