Twitter erupted on Thursday (January 21) after false reports claiming Tory Lanez’s felony assault charge had been dropped started making the rounds. Upon looking up the case on The Superior Court of California website, it was easy to determine the preliminary hearing had simply been rescheduled.
Par for the course, the rumor spread like wildfire across social media, forcing alleged shooting victim Megan Thee Stallion to take action.
“AT THIS POINT IM GETTING ANNOYED ! STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE MF INTERNET,” she tweeted. “Imagine how I feel waking every day seeing people LIE and turn my trauma into a joke ? That whole team figures out ways to create doubt with my story every week and the media eats it up.”
Once the chatter reached Lanez, he decided to use it to his advantage and shared a clip of an upcoming video featuring DaBaby to his Instagram account. The snippet finds Lanez and DaBaby portraying a pair of priests executing an exorcism on a possessed women.
He wrote in the caption, “CLEARLY MY 2021 IS GOING TO BE FIRE #SKAT ! Ft @dababy COMING SPRING. ALL UMBRELLAS DROP A IN THE COMMENTS . Love y’all thank u for always supporting me @christhedirector.”

Megan revealed she was shot last July after a night out with the Canadian rapper and Keeping Up With Kardashians star Kylie Jenner. She ultimately identified Lanez as the triggerman and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) eventually charged him with felony assault.
Despite the charge, Lanez has maintained his innocence for the last several months. In September, he dropped an entire self-titled album called DAYSTAR dedicated to defending himself. On the opening track, “Money Over Fallouts,” he not only denies shooting her but also questions her injuries.
“How the fuck you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?” he raps before ending the track by bragging about having “bad bitches who want to have an orgy.”
Lanez pleaded not guilty to the felony assault charge last November.
