Megan Thee Stallion shared photos from her shooting injury on Wednesday (Aug. 19). The images, taken last month, offer a close-up look at the gruesome injury.
Along with the photos, Meg addressed people who didn’t believe that she was shot, and divulged a few details about the incident. “Lol what I have learned [about] majority of the people on social media is y’all like to hear bad news before goods news,” she captioned the photo before it was deleted.
“A lie spreads quicker than the truth and y’all really be believing the sh*t Y’ALL make up..I got hit at the back of my feet because when I got shot I was WALKING AWAY FACING THE BACK. Why would I lie [about] getting shot? Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk?”
She went on to reveal that her stitches were removed two weeks ago, and that she has been out and about celebrating “WAP” hitting No. 1. “God was really watching over me and I’m healing so well! Sorry I’m not [as] sad and miserable as a lot of y’all lol but ima [sic] keep being Megan Thee Mf STALLION.”

Although Lanez, 28, has yet to address the shooting, his rep denied rumors that he was deported back to his native Canada after the alleged incident.
