(Vibe) – Megan Thee Stallion finally spoke out against her “haters” following Tory Lanez’s guilty verdict. During her set at Outside Lands Festival on Sunday (Aug. 13), Meg addressed her detractors, who have consistently claimed Tory is innocent and that she lied.

Speaking to her critics, the “Houston Hottie” asserted that none of their comments swayed her or her fanbase. “I just wanna say, f**k all my haters,” she said. “None of that sh*t you was doing or saying broke me. None of that sh*t y’all be doing or saying to the Hotties broke them. And I want all of the Hotties to put they mothaf**king middle fingers up right now.”

Tory Lanez, né Daystar Peterson, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting Megan Thee Stallion on Tuesday (Aug. 8). BBC reports that Judge David Herriford announced the decade-long sentence in Los Angeles. Initially, prosecutors sought 13 years for the Toronto rapper due to “a lack of remorse for his actions.” The prosecution also viewed his outbursts as attempts to “humiliate and re-traumatize the victim through his actions.”

However, according to reporter Meghann Cuniff, Judge David Herriford credited Peterson 305 days of time served. So, he will spend 9 years in prison with possible deportation. After the sentencing, Tory took to Instagram to proclaim his innocence. The rapper maintained that he didn’t shoot Meg and asserted he wouldn’t apologize for anything.
