These days, Megan Thee Stallion is definitely in charge of the Gworlz. From a # 1 single with Queen Bey and a few Grammy nominations to Congressman Maxine Waters thanking her for commenting in the New York Times, this is a moment to remember for the Houston hottie.
In an Instagram post she wrote in part, “One of the highlights of my year was receiving a letter from Congressman @repmaxinewaters. It is a great honor for me to be recognized by such an amazing woman and I promise to continue to use my voice and encourage others to use theirs. “
In the letter, Congressman Maxine Waters told Megan that she was “incredibly proud of her”.
“I cannot thank you enough for urgently needing the plight of black women not just here in the US – everywhere -,” the Congresswoman wrote.
Congressman Waters also mentioned how black women are often overlooked while being a crucial fabric of this country.
As you will recall, Megan spoke about the shooting incident where she claims Tory Lanez shot her: “While we are too often overlooked, there is no doubt that black women are glue to our families and communities,” added Waters added. “And a crucial part of the structure of this country.”
In the play she said: “I was recently the victim of violence by a man. After a party, I was shot twice walking away from him. We weren’t in a relationship. In all honesty, I was shocked that I ended up in this place. “
She continued, “My initial silence about what happened was out of fear for me and my friends. Even as a victim, I encountered skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly asked and discussed whether I played a role in my own violent attack shows that my fears about discussing what happened were unfortunately justified. “
Megan continued talking about violence against women and doesn’t always have to be associated with a romantic relationship.
“Instead, it happens because too many men treat all women as objects, which helps them justify abuse against us when we choose to exercise our own free will,” Megan said.
