“We ain’t forget sis” – Draya Michele‘s own fans drove this reply up the comments section over the weekend as the 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder continued to receive backlash over her Megan Thee Stallion shooting joke.
Draya shot up Twitter trends on July 22 for, seemingly, opening her big mouth and delivering big wit – but having both social media and “Savage” rapper Megan slap her with a #NotCool. Scroll for the latest photo, comments, and a summary.
Draya made her statement amid headlines Texan-born Megan made for revealing she had been shot multiple times in the foot – reports suggest that Canadian rapper Tory Lanez, arrested for gun charges earlier this month, may have shot Stallion. Megan, saying she was “grateful to be alive” after the alleged shooting, also revealed needing surgery after it.
Draya said: “I predict that they had some sort of Bobby & Whitney love that drove them down this type of road,” then adding she was “here for it.”
“I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot too,” she added. More below.
Draya, who issued a swift apology to her fellow SavagexFenty ambassador – and you can see it below – does not appear to have been forgiven.
The “Basketball Wives LA” alum updated her Instagram on Saturday with a hot sports bra and matching panties photo promoting her Oh Polly collab. The snap showing Draya also rocking low-slung white jeans to match her sporty basics came captioned: “We call them lil rolls on the side
“chee-Cho’s” where I’m from.
Set: @ohpolly #DRAYAxPOLLYSPORT.”
Nobody was talking about the “rolls” over in the comments section.
Over 550 users liked a comment reading: “We ain’t forget sis.” Others meanwhile, predicted that the Fashion Nova partner may well have herself ripped to shreds by Meg in a future track – “Right! And her name bout to be in verse cuz Meg ain’t let it slide!”
Megan, indeed, had not let it slide. She tweeted: “Dumb b-tch that sh-t ain’t f-cking funny who tf jokes about getting shot by a n—-.”
Draya’s backlash built up. “Girl ?,” was all one fan needed. Scroll for Draya’s apology.
Draya’s name was already trending – and not for good reasons – when she issued her apology.
“I just want to take a min to address victims of domestic violence and abuse of any kind and just overall humans,” she wrote, adding it was “wrong to insinuate that there is room for violence in loving relationships, or in any relationship for that matter.”
The mom of two added that she didn’t mean to “glorify” domestic violence, also apologizing for having “offended many, including Meg.”
