Remy Ma Opens Up About Tory Lanez & Megan Thee Stallion Case

Remy Ma has indirectly offered her opinion on the outcome of Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion’s 2022 court case, which she believes was media influenced.

During her recent appearance on The Jason Lee Show, host Rem and fellow guest Hitman asked Holla if they think people’s actions reflect the popular “Protect Black Women” hashtag. Lee specifically referenced the treatment Megan Thee Stallion received before and during the process of filming her in 2020 online.

When hitman Holla responded that despite the guilty verdict, he believes there is no way of knowing exactly what happened in the case, Jason Lee concluded that Remy Ma might have some doubts as to whether or not Meg was shot. To which she replied, “I don’t know. I was not there.”

After Remy admitted that she doesn’t think black women are universally supported, Remy returned to the topic of the highly publicized trial, but avoided choosing sides or even naming Meg or Tory Lanez.

“I feel like when it comes to public cases, the media judges people and the media determines what a judgment is,” she said. “And coming from someone who’s been in court before, it’s never 100 percent on either side. So every side will bend [things] so that it goes to what is fair to them. So I often feel like everyone, especially when it comes to celebrities, goes with what their favorite is.

In January, Tory Lanez’s attorney also hinted that his client may not have received a fair trial. However, attorney Jose Baez called the cause “numerous mistakes” he believes were made during the Megan Thee Stallion shooting trial.

The Canadian rapper was found guilty in December of shooting Megan in the feet during a drunken argument after a party at Kylie Jenner’s Hollywood Hills home in July 2020.

But according to Lanez’s new attorney — the defense attorney best known for helping Casey Anthony avoid jail and former NFL player Aaron Hernandez, who beat a double homicide case — the trial could have gone very differently.

“Looking at this case, I definitely wish I had gotten in sooner rather than later,” he told TMZ. “Unfortunately it is, but he has me now and I’m ready to give him everything I have and hopefully we get the best possible result for him.

“As you may know, Tory has never been convicted of a crime and he’s never had to deal with the circumstances he’s dealing with, so the adjustment he’s going through is new to him. To his credit he listens to his lawyers, he’s an incredibly articulate young man.”

He added, “There are things in all of this that he certainly would have wished for in the process if he had gone the other way… He’s trying his best to adapt to everything. Given that he’s never been in this situation before, it’s really a tough process to go through.”

Tory Lanez was found guilty of three counts in connection with the alleged shooting, including assault with a semi-automatic firearm, possession of a concealed unregistered firearm and reckless discharging of a firearm.

He faces up to 22 years and eight months in prison and deportation to Canada. The 30-year-old rapper was due to be sentenced on January 27, but that date has been pushed back to February 28 due to a reshuffle of his legal team.

In addition to Baez, Tory has hired David Kenner – the veteran attorney known to have helped Snoop Dogg thwart his 1993 murder case and previously represented Suge Knight – and Matthew Barhoma, who specializes in criminal appeals.

Lawyers are currently preparing to file a motion for a new trial that would overturn his three convictions.
