Megan Thee Stallion says she’s ‘healing so well’ after being shot in Hollywood
Rapper Megan Thee Stallion is continuing to update fans — and confront internet trolls — about her health after suffering gunshot wounds last month in the Hollywood Hills.
On Wednesday, the “WAP” hitmaker shared a closeup photo of her injured foot, which is “healing so well” after stitches were removed two weeks ago, according to a now-deleted Instagram post from the “Hot Girl Summer” artist.
“What I have learned abt majority of the people on social media is y’all like to hear bad news before good news, a lie spreads quicker than the truth, and y’all really be believing the [stuff] YALL make up,” she wrote, addressing haters who accused her of lying about the shooting.
“I got hit at the back of my feet because when I got shot I was WALKING AWAY FACING THE BACK. why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk?”
The L.A. County district attorney’s office asks the LAPD to further investigate an incident in which rapper Megan Thee Stallion claims she was shot.
The “Savage” rapper underwent surgery in July to remove the bullets after the Los Angeles Police Department responded to an incident involving her and Canadian rapper Tory Lanez, who was arrested that morning on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon.
Later that month, Megan Thee Stallion detailed the “super scary” experience in a tearful video criticizing men for “cracking jokes” about the situation on social media. She also thanked her fans and loved ones for their support and well-wishes.

Wednesday’s deleted post also casually mentioned the record-breaking success of Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” collaboration with Cardi B, which skyrocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after its splashy Aug. 7 debut. This morning, the pair of rappers announced plans to give $1 million to 2,000 women — $500 apiece — who tweet #WAPParty via Cash App in honor of the mega-hit single.
“I was ready to go celebrate WAP going number1,” Megan Thee Stallion continued on Instagram Wednesday. “I usually don’t address internet b— but y’all people are so sick! ... Sorry I’m not as sad and miserable as a lot of y’all lol but ima keep being Megan Thee ... STALLION.”
