If you have been following along with the trial, you know that it has been a tad bit crazy. We have disappearing witnesses and witnesses who showed up only to plead the fifth. There were talks of bringing rap lyrics into evidence.

Meg was assaulted all over when she took the stand, Tory thought it was a good idea to bring what is essentially a toddler to court to sit in on a violent discussion. Truly, the drama surrounding the trial was endless and we can only imagine the conversation will continue on social media because both parties involved have a seriously strong fanbase.

Twitter Is On Fire

The discussion on Twitter is crazy, people are throwing around opinions that are likely to offend one person or another.

“Tory Lanez has no cultural significance outside of shooting Megan Thee Stallion. The minute ppl heard Megan was a victim of gender-based violence at the hands of Tory ppl decided to rally around him. Why? Because they are committed to defending & enabling violence against women,” is one follower's opinion.

“Tory Lanez released an entire album mocking Megan Thee Stallion for “lying” about being shot but can’t take the stand because he might incriminate himself even though he swears he is innocent,” noticed another fan who went on to say he was wrong from the beginning.

“Damn Tory Lanez is guilty???” writes one shocked follower of the drama.

Regardless of where you stand, the verdict has been handed down and now we are on the edges of our seats to see if he gets deported.
