“So I get out of the car and it’s like everything happens so fast,” she explains. “And all I hear is this man screaming, he said ‘Dance b–!’ And he started shooting. I just say, “Oh my god.” He shot a few times. “

During the preview of the interview, Megan Thee Stallion became emotional with King as she remembered the events.

“I did not even want to move. I did not want to move too fast because I say, ‘Oh my god, if I take the wrong step, I do not know if he could shoot something that is super important “I do not know if he could shoot me and kill me,” she said, crying.

In the play titled “Why I Speak Up For Black Women”, the hip-hop star wrote that “Black women are still constantly respected and ignored in so many areas of life.”

“My first silence about what happened was for fear of myself and my friends,” she wrote. “Even as a victim, I have been met with skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fear of discussing what happened, unfortunately was justified. “
