“We’re not supposed to be seen as wild animals tearing up these people stores! I’m upset!… I respect people standing up…I don’t appreciate you taking sh*t on Instagram [about] ‘the girl crying over Gucci.’ I wasn’t crying over Gucci!”
Tory Lanez then asked her if she marched with the people or been present when looting is happening and she said no. She added,
“I don’t appreciate that white man killing us. But I don’t think we’re gonna get anywhere stealing these people’s sh*t. F*** Gucci! Let’s make that understood! I don’t even wear that sh*t anyway!”
