Megan Thee Stallion had a message for her “haters” during her recent performance.

Taking the stage at the Outside Lands Music Festival on Sunday, the 28-year-old rapper commanded attention in a pink bodysuit paired with matching leggings and boots.

During the performance of her hit singles, the rapper took a moment to address her detractors:

“So today, I just want to say, f–k all my haters! None of that s–t you was doing or saying broke me! None of that s–t y’all be doing or saying to the Hotties broke them!”

Megan Thee Stallion’s candid message and performance came days after rapper Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting her in the feet during a 2020 altercation in the Hollywood Hills.

Following his sentencing on Aug. 8, Lanez took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the ruling, maintaining his innocence in the assault against Megan.

“I have never let a hard time intimidate me. I will never, never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will,” the 31-year-old rapper wrote on Instagram two days after his sentence was issued.

Lanez’s sentencing by Judge David Herriford followed a guilty verdict on three felony charges relating to the  assault: discharging a firearm with gross negligence, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

The Canadian rapper’s ten-year prison sentence prompted his lawyer, Jose Baez, to announce his plans to appeal the ruling.

Megan Thee Stallion addressed the assault in a victim impact statement  read in court just before Lanez was sentenced.

“Since I was viciously shot by the defendant, I have not experienced a single day of peace,” the rapper wrote in her statement. “He lied to anyone that would listen and paid bloggers to disseminate false information about the case on social media. He released music videos and songs to damage my character and continue his crusade.”
