Tory Lanez has maintained his innocence after he was sentenced to a decade in jail for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot.
The rapper asserted that he has been wrongfully convicted and stands firm in his refusal “to apologize for something that I did not do.”
Lanez was convicted of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, concealing and discharging a firearm in a vehicle, and carelessly discharging a handgun.
Lanez maintains his innocence despite the decision and has addressed the problem in a poignant message.
Lanez addressed his supporters, saying,
“To The Umbrellas,
I have never let a hard time intimidate me
I will never never let no jail time eliminate me
Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will.
This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved….
In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges l’m being wrongfully convicted of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.
I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious.
Tough times don’t last, tough people do.
To my family, friends and umbrellas thank you for your continued support.
See you soon.”
The punishment was handed down in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday for shooting the Savage hitmaker in both feet after a party in July 2020.
