    I am so angry that Megan has to deal with this. Tory victimized her first and she’s being victimized again. Where are the women advocacy groups who seem to have the backs of non-women of color? I am so tired of the way black women get treated. I am tired.

      I urge you to read MTS’s testimony (it’s on twitter).

      Essentially MTS didn’t initially report TL because she was afraid of betraying the black community and hazing from the ‘boys club of black male music producers’. Which backs up the claims of a lot of black female artists in the industry.

      As TL shot MTS he shouted ‘dance b!tch” in full view of his crew but none of them will testify to the statement, which would show not just intent but extreme malice and a callous disregard for MTS safety. The malice element significantly ups the stakes.

      Basically TL and his crew expected MTS to suck it up and not report him.

      The whole situation is a mess and I hope that MTS will be ok because I fear there will be reprisals id TL gets jail time. I also hope the crew get jail time as a lesson.

        he shot her.
        No matter what they argued about or who was drunk or who had sex with who….a gun? Why would he involve a gun. I hope he found guilty. She wasn’t even going to report him at first, then he had the audacity to disrespect her after she was silent. His mouth is one of the reasons she told the truth. I know 2 songs by meg so its not like im a fan. But im tired of this treatment toward us. She deserves justice

        You know the a$$hole had the nerve to bring his young son to court with him ? “Hey look I’m a good father ! I don’t shoot people !”. Whatever. I can’t believe he’s Canadian. I’m sorry you Americans have him now. I guess he’ll be deported after doing his prison time though.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        Exactly. None of that matters. Attorneys are very good at exploiting an unexamined bias. They’re very good at taking a lack of empathy for some women and using that to their client’s advantage. If *men and women* aren’t careful, they can end up allowing that lack of empathy, and the inherently violent beliefs everyone has been exposed to in some way to be used to do serious harm to women.

    • sunny says:

      I just want peace for her. This whole thing has been horrible and she has suffered so much. I’m glad she reported it.

    Minor hill I will die on, you always walk to the right with the ongoing traffic. It is amazing how many people I will stand in front of and they expect me the move when I have the right of way.

    You don’t walk side by side on a sidewalk. I will not say excuse and will be ready to push someone over. I am tired of this rudeness from people.

    And the lack of support for Megan in the industry is breaking my heart. She was shot and they are making it her fault instead of the victim she is. I am glad she is speaking up and speaking out on this as well.

    • Tiffany:) says:

      “the lack of support for Megan in the industry is breaking my heart.”

      Yes, this. She’s being treated terribly, and I wish there was a way to show her support. She’s a victim, I’m sure she was traumatized that night (by being shot at and the vulnerability of being the focus of police attention), and to see her treated like this is so unjust. I am amazed that they even have to have a trial, as it is so clear Tory shot at her.

      And f*ck Drake and others who use her pain to get attention for themselves.

  3. DeeSea says:

    It’s disheartening (and infuriating) to watch things unfold like this for Megan. That’s too much for one person to deal with, and it sounds truly nightmarish. I wish her all the peace and happiness possible.

    I’m absolutely shocked by the death of tWitch. I fell in love with him when he was a contestant on SYTYCD, I loved him and Alison together, and I watched their family’s joy-filled dance videos whenever I needed a pick-me-up. It’s a devastating reminder that we never know what someone else is going through. I’m going to be extra-kind to everyone I encounter today. Have a good one, my beloved fellow Celebitchies.

    • Tiffany:) says:

      tWitch was such a delightful dancer, I’m so sad to hear what happened. My heart goes out to his family. So very sad.

    • Erin says:

      I gasped when I saw that he was gone. I literally had just watched a video of the two of them randomly a few days ago for a contest or maybe giveaway I think they were doing and I never followed them so the video just reminded me how cute and sweet their family was. Just devastated for them.

    • Emmi says:

      tWitch shocked me today, I cannot imagine a kind of pain that drives you to do this. I feel terrible for his wife and kids.

    • Mimi says:

      I kept seeing his name pop up in my notifications and I refused to read any of the articles because I didn’t want to confirm his death. Such a delightful personality and always smiling. My heart breaks for his wife and kids.

  4. ME says:

    I just heard that the DJ from Ellen’s show, DJ twitch died by suicide. I am so shocked by this.

    • Moondust says:

      I’m so shocked too. I remember him from SYTYCD. I absolutely loved a routine he did with Alex Wong. Such a very sad news. RIP Twitch

    • lucky says:

      I am so so so sad. It is always so hard to understand this kind of thing from someone who seemed to exude positivity and joy. His poor family. Such heartbreak.

      • Ariel says:

        I just made my 13yo rewatch that Alex Wong/tWitch routine tonight as a way to honor the loss…. Such an amazing dancer and bright personality.

        We all have our dark moments, but he must have been in such a painful place to go through with this when he’s got small children at home. So heartbreaking.

    I will die on the hill that Grease 2 is the superior of the Grease movies.

    I said what I said.

  6. Normades says:

    Tangled is 100x better than Frozen.

    • Becks1 says:

      omg, its 10000x better! I also love Princess and the Frog.

      I guess a hill I will die on is that while its a gorgeous movie with good songs, Frozen isn’t actually that good a movie. The plot sucks.

  7. Case says:

    Most of the major studios and specific film social media pages were gloating about Golden Globe nominations after the announcement. I’m under the impression that people will absolutely attend (even if they don’t want to, because of pressure from the studios and films they represent). And a lot of casual viewers don’t seem to know there was any controversy to begin with. I really doubt NBC would agree to televise it without agreements of attendance in advance.

  8. Noo says:

    Responding to the elf names, watch that clip to see local Calgary treasure Leslie Horton in action! I don’t watch global news but she’s MC’d some corporate parties that I’ve been at, quite hilariously. I remember when we had a big flood she absolutely lambasted the “looky loo’s” who were holding up traffic to watch the flooding live on air. It was amazing.

    Check out Leslie Horton’s “holiday artichoke dip” clip too, this is my kind of entertaining for the holidays! https://youtu.be/aQAauVu2sTg

    • MangoAngelesque says:

      I *cackle* over that artichoke dip experience, every single time I watch it. Their faces! Her explanations! Just tooooo funny.

  9. ChillinginDC says:

    Not one actors/actresses seems excited about the GG noms so I think this will be a wet fart myself.

    Megan deserves all the support.

  10. Mothra says:

    Browsing through a few comments on a fb page about this case, I couldn’t find one, not a single one man who wasn’t calling her a liar. It’s unbelievable how they tight they hold one another’s hands against us.

  11. Nicegirl says:

    Thank you MTS 💕 🖖

  12. Chantal says:

    Of course they brought up MTG’s sex life, and instead of talking about the violent/actions of TP, the focus is on that. Disappointed but understandable why she lied in that Gayle King interview and to the police, trying to protect that weasel. They’d have to get me in court and under oath to admit to sleeping with him too! It’s time for Black women to stop protecting violent Black men. The “snitching” code, esp needs to go.
    And TL also recently attacked August Alsina. No outrage over that either. Yes he had an affair with Jada but seriously?? Yet crickets all around and close to zero support for either of them. It’s also interesting that anyone from the Kardashian/Jenner clan is testifying for the defense. Don’t they avoid courtrooms at all costs unless they’re the litigants?
    The key and only important question of Did He Shoot Her Or Not has gotten lost in all of the messiness the blogs and social media keep focusing on. I hope she gets the justice she deserves.

    Anyone else sick about Tory Lanez bringing his son to this trial?
