Megan Thee Stallion penned her powerful "Why I Speak Up for Black Women" essay for the New York Times on Tuesday (Oct. 13), in which the "WAP" rapper discusses how Black women are often disrespected, using her personal experience as a victim of assault as an example.
However, despite her cry to "protect Black women," a number of trolls on social media continued to do the exact opposite. "If @theestallion is taking advantage of this #PROTECTBLACKWOMEN and pandering, she gonna lose a lot of fans when the facts comes out," one Twitter user wrote.
Meg fired back at the hater, writing, "This is exactly the type of dumb comment that makes me scream PROTECT BLACK WOMEN. Please tell me why I would need to lie abt being shot to promote the protection of women... like out of all the things to lie about ... this is sad coming out of a BLACK MAN’S MOUTH."
