Megan: 50 Cent’s meme about Thee Stallion
After reports emerged that Tory Lanez had allegedly shot Thee Stallion on July 12 when she was “trying to leave” his car, jokes about the pair started popping up on social media.
50 Cent joined in with a meme based on the 1991 film Boyz N the Hood that depicted Megan Thee Stallion running down an alley as Tory Lanez aimed a gun at her from the backseat of a car. “Run Ricky Run,” he captioned the now-deleted meme. “WTF is really going on? #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”
