Remy Ma recently stated that the media swayed the Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion shooting verdict. Moreover, that case resulted in Lanez’s conviction. Furthermore, she spoke on The Jason Lee Show along with Hitman Holla about how the media typically engages in favoritism. Of course, many quickly assumed that she’s on Lanez’s side, perhaps rightfully so. However, the New York rapper’s comments took a broader aim at media coverage, and she didn’t say whether she believed Lanez shot Meg. Overall, it’s a difficult and relevant conversation to have, albeit one with specific implications in this case when talking about media influence. After all, many agreed with her, but still knew that the evidence against the Canadian singer and rapper pointed to his guilt.
“I feel like when it come to public cases, the media convicts people and the media determines what a verdict is,” Remy expressed. “Coming from somebody who was on trial before, everything is never 100% on your side. Each side is gonna bend s**t so that it goes to whatever caters to them. I just feel like lot of times, especially with celebrities, everybody go with who’s their favorite.” Moreover, Lee pushed back with some questions. “This hashtag, ‘Protect Black Women.’ Is it a real thing? ‘Cause everybody be talking about the Black queens. But I feel like when Meg and that whole Tory thing went down, nobody was really standing up for her.”
“I mean, the thing with that is, nobody knew the truth,” Holla responded. “They don’t, but I’m saying that you can’t expect somebody to protect somebody. ‘Cause what if she was, like..? I’m just saying, I stay out of people’s business if I don’t know what’s going on. If I don’t know if it’s true or not, I stay out the way.” Then, Lee asked a doubtful Remy if she thinks Tory shot Meg. “I don’t know, I wasn’t there, I’m not in the space to talk about anybody getting shot. If she was black or white, I wasn’t there.”
For what it’s worth, Lee did combat some of these obfuscations, mentioning the paperwork of the case and evidence. However, Remy’s comments seem less antagonistic than they are skeptical of the media as a whole. While that concern is valid and always applicable to cases like these, it especially insinuates doubt after a final verdict. Regardless of your take, come back to HNHH for the latest on Remy Ma, Megan The Stallion, and Tory Lanez.
