Megan Thee Stallion Is Not on Trial, but Misogynoir Is

Tory Lanez (real name Daystar Peterson) is on trial facing three felony charges in connection with the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion (real name Megan Pete) on the night of July 12, 2020. Despite these charges being brought on by The L.A. County District Attorney, Megan being the victim of violence, and her being just one witness of many, the artist has been under increased attacks leading to a spread of misinformation and disinformation online—especially by HipHop entertainment social media accounts/blogs. From comments from the paparazzi to people claiming that Megan has a “defense team” (even though she doesn’t have one because she’s not on trial), ever since the first day of taking the stand, the hate has intensified.
