Megan Thee Stallion’s recent interview with Gayle King about the issue between her and Tory Lanez has sparked a lot of discussion on the internet. However, Joe Budden has been one of the most outspoken critics of Megan Thee Stallion’s allegations that Tory Lanez shot her. The retired emcee made it known on multiple episodes of The Joe Budden Podcast that he believes Lanez.

According to Budden, Meg going to Gayle King was “disgusting” and “sways public opinion.” Budden, who has dealt with the legal system, finds it “triggering” when people “play public jury games.” Budden and his co-hosts also went into detail regarding Tory’s unfairness in the argument.

“He cannot speak again. So, you’re going to sit down with Gayle King… while he can’t speak…I don’t necessarily love it.”

Budden questioned Meg’s decision to talk with Gayle King, claiming that she should have gone to a hip-hop outlet instead. Budden thinks there are other media outlets that she could select from. “Go to Hip-Hop,” he exclaimed.


“There are too many hip-hop f**king outlets. Go to somebody who understands all of this sh*t, is keeping up with all this sh*t, and can provide some type of pushback if you’re trying to come off organic.”

Budden went on to connect Meg’s situation to Evelyn Lozado and Chad Ochocinco’s domestic violence incident, claiming that “victim-blaming” exists. However, stay tuned to Thirsty to get the latest news regarding the Tory-Megan clash.
