On Friday, last week, Tory Lanez was found guilty of all three charges from his 2020 Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident. After his verdict, the reactions were divided with many rejoicing that he was found guilty, and others believing that “the powers that be” had something to do with the guilty verdict and that he was in fact innocent. The fans took it a step further and even started a petition to appeal the court’s decision.
The petition was created just a couple of hours after the verdict was announced. The petition received over 24,000 signatures the day it was created. As the day went on the petition reached over 35,000 signatures out of the 50,000 needed.
