Rapper Megan thee Stallion addressed recently resurfaced homophobic tweets that went viral earlier this week, writing that she’s now a changed and more mature woman.
The rapper took to Twitter Thursday to comment on the issue, writing, “You going this far over a tweet from 2012? that obviously meant no harm coming from me in high school, you mfs are sick.”
She added, “I’ve already apologized for tweets that obviously do not represent my views now. I don’t do nothing but show love to everyone so just stop.”
In the since-deleted resurfaced tweet, the rapper used a homophobic slur, writing, “This lil f****t just pissed me off.”
Screenshots of other tweets have reportedly been shared, but the rapper has not confirmed or denied whether they are real.
Of course, since the tweet resurfaced, fans have debated whether the rapper should be canceled, with some pointing to other problematic celebrities who’ve been forgiven or highlighting Megan’s age at the time of the tweet.
One fan added that they hope the rapper uses this opportunity to grow and will “think about why people were hurt in the first place.”
