ORIGINAL: After weeks of speculation from internet haters, Megan Thee Stallion has provided proof on Instagram that she was shot in the foot. The “WAP” rapper, 25, shared a photo on August 19 of the massive bullet wound on her heel, as well as a pic of two doctors stitching her up at the hospital, which you can see below. Warning: the images are graphic. She also wrote a lengthy message to those who accused her of faking the shooting.
“Lol what I have learned abt majority of the people on social media is y’all like to hear bad news before good news, a lie spreads quicker than the truth, and y’all really be believing the sh*t Y’ALL make up… I got hit at the back of my feet because when I got shot I was WALKING AWAY FACING THE BACK. why would I lie abt getting shot?” Megan wrote on Instagram.
“Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed, sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk? I got my stitches out my feet like two weeks ago and I was ready to go celebrate ‘WAP’ going number 1,” she continued. “I usually don’t address internet bullsh*t but y’all people are so sick! God was really watching over me and I’m healing so well! Sorry I’m not as sad and miserable as a lot of y’all lol but ima keep being Megan Thee Mf STALLION.”
Megan was shot on July 15 while leaving a house party in the Hollywood Hills in an SUV with Tory Lanez and her best friend/assistant, Kelsey Nicole. Tory, 27, was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, which is a felony. After the traumatic incident, Megan took to Instagram to issue a statement:
“The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight,” she 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 where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets.” She added that she was focusing on her recovery.
