Questlove Criticizes The Media For Lack Of Coverage In Megan Thee Stallion Shooting

Over that past week, several reports have revealed that some type of incident took place resulting in Tory Lanez being arrested on gun charges and Megan Thee Stallion being sent to the hospital due to being shot in her foot. Though the Los Angeles police department is investigating the situation, they have remained very tight lipped on what exactly happened. Some people feel there is a lack media coverage and The Roots drummer Questlove is one of them. On the morning of July 26th, Questlove posted a picture of Megan The Stallion with a caption trying to figure out how and why he has not heard anything about the story. Questlove writes:

“How this whole Meg situation happened & not reaching my radar is baffling me…but I feel like no way this happened—-like all casual . Am I missing something?…I read the story & I went to bed & was just like “wait did I read that right?”

Questlove began to question if anything is being done concerning the incident:

“I guess I’m asking 1) did I read right? 2) did anything happen as a result? (Based on her response I’m assuming this wasn’t a freak accident)…I just wanna know how come this isn’t taken in a serious matter (I’m dreading I already know the answer as I type each word) everything about this story is mad….f*cked up? Hardly heard no news coverage, nothing….don’t even know @theestalllon like that but I hope she recovers & gets justice”

Questlove’s concerns over the lack of media coverage seem to be in line with a post Megan Thee Stallion made on Twitter about how black women are not protected, Megan writes:





“Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own. It might be funny to y’all on the internet and just another messy topic for you to talk about but this is my real life and I’m real life hurt and traumatized.”

After rumors about the incident started to spread on the net Megan made a post to her instagram to clear the air:





“The narrative that is being reported about Sunday morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight,” Megan wrote. “On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me. I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital when I underwent surgery to remove the bullets. I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night. I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”

Megan also stated that she was never in police custody:

“I was never arrested. This whole experience was an eye opener and a blessing in disguise. I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy.”
