“I’m gonna apologize to Megan Thee Stallion,” he said during a segment on Big Boy's Neighborhood.

This revelation comes after a jury "convicted rapper Tory Lanez on all counts in the 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion," as reported by BuzzFeed News.

"Lanez, 30, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, was found guilty [Dec. 23, 2022] of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence."

Now, after two years of Megan expressing her truth to the public through music, sharing medical reports, police reports, and an entire legal battle — 50 Cent realizes that she was telling the truth.

“I said some things, and it was because…on social media, I posted things that — when she was with Gayle [King] — she said, 'Were you intimate with Tory Lanez?' And she said, 'What?' and it was like, 'No.' And I was like, 'Ah, she lying.'"

He's referring to a TV interview Megan had with Gayle King on CBS Mornings, where she described the incident in detail and denied having an intimate relationship with Tory.

Instead of recognizing the violent crime that occurred, 50 Cent and an unfortunate number of men focused on her veiled response regarding her intimacy with Tory. "At that point, I knew she was lying. It wouldn't be no reason for them to be around each other. From that, it felt like she was lying, to me," he said.

Keep in mind, 50 Cent and others doubting her story and making jokes at her expense predates the Gayle King interview.

"The only reason why I feel like I should, like, at some point you should apologize — I should apologize to her — because um, when I heard the phone conversation that made me feel like oh shit, now I know what happened."

The only reason why you should apologize at some point? Yikes.

In other words, it wasn't Megan's statements or Tory's guilty verdict that changed his mind, it was after he distinctly heard Tory's comments in the released phone conversation.

He ignored the cries and pleas of the victim in favor of the accused. In my opinion, this is a disgusting byproduct of misogyny. We can do better.
