Joe Budden apologizes to Megan Thee Stallion for mental health joke

joe budden has issued an apology to Megan Thee stallion after the podcast host joked about the state of her mental health.

The aforementioned comments were made on last week’s episode of Budden’s podcast, where he discussed Meg’s ongoing criminal trial against Tory Lanez, and in the long discussion with Dj Akademiks He too expressed his disdain for the Houston rapper.

“I have seen this woman do horrible things to some really great people I have [a] long-standing relationship here in this industry, so I’m biased,” Budden said at one point. “You can’t just treat my friends, the people I fuck with, and the people I’ve seen in this game for 15 years a certain way.”

Budden went on to hint that Megan Thee Stallion was lying about allegedly having been shot in the foot by Tory Lanez in July 2020 and said: “What I can say is that I am done with these n-ggas and I don’t like that girl. Can’t.”

In the most recent episode of Budden’s podcast posted on Wednesday (December 21), the “Pump It Up” rapper apologized for some of the comments he made after receiving some angry phone calls from the women in his life.

“I apologize to Meg,” the retired rapper said at the 19-minute mark. “Meg, the people who love her, her handlers, her team, the people who must support her through what must be a grueling ordeal. I heard back. I received some phone calls from women that I love, appreciate and admire.

He continued: “I apologize for the careless way I joked about his mental health… That’s not funny, because whether you believe it or not, can you afford to be wrong? The answer is no.”

Budden’s comments especially did not sit well with Vivica A. Fox, who in the latest episode of Fox Soul’s Cocktails With Queens, criticized Budden for taking down female rappers.

“Joe Budden, if you don’t button up and sit on the floor hating that girl,” Fox said. “They’re all mad because girls rule rap. It’s driving them crazy that sistas are just ruling and taking numbers and you can tell them about yourselves, you look sexy in it, it’s a new day.”

He added: “But if she wanted some attention, to be honest with you, I think it’s the wrong one to try to get it because it’s really coming out the facts that are coming out after so many years of this highly anticipated trial that she received a shot So, you know, get used to it, bro, it’s a new day. Girls rule, sorry Joe Budden.”

Budden’s apology comes as Megan Thee Stallion’s trial continues. More recently, forensic scientist Marc Scott Taylor told the court that No Tory Lanez DNA was found in the gun’s magazine used in the alleged shooting and that tests performed on the DNA found on the weapon were inconclusive.

Additionally, a man named Sean Kelly testified on Tuesday (December 20) that he he watched the entire confrontation from his bedroom window. Kelly said she saw a “violent” fight between two women before an “angry man” entered the mix.

He claimed he saw the first flash closer to “the girls…around the same time the smaller guy (Lanez) got out of the car.” “I think I saw the girl shoot first,” she said. “[But] I thought they were fireworks.”

He then said the man, who he assumed was Tory Lanez, started shooting next. “I just saw that he was very angry, yelling, and then the flashes came from him. I never saw a gun,” Kelly added. “Everyone was fighting, so I assumed he grabbed the gun.”

Tory Lanez’s music could also potentially be used as evidence in the ongoing trial, with Judge Herriford declaring Tory’s discography as “fair game” if asked to testify.
