Jidenna, Ebro Darden, Tiq Milan, and Jay Connor joined each other for a panel discussion regarding abuse and sexual assault within the Black community. Around 7:30 into the conversation, Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting incident with Tory Lanez was brought up. Moderator Jay Connor asked why Megan and other Black women’s stories of abuse are met with ridicule and mockery. Jidenna called Tory’s alleged actions, as well as the silence and slander Megan received, “appalling and disgusting” before highlighting Black men’s feeling of powerlessness as the root of the issue. Jidenna followed up his statement by challenging Black men to reckon with their own power and get rid of the patriarchal ideas that prevent them from being better allies to Black women.
