Megan Thee Stallion never shies away from calling a spade a spade. The rapper delivered a powerful speech during her solo debut at the recent episode of ‘Saturday Night Live'. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter was decked up in a sultry black-and-white ensemble as she performed her hit single ‘Savage’ with the help of matching backup dancers. Using her high-profile appearance on the show, she made sure she used the stage to deliver a powerful message.

The politically-charged speech included a message for the Black Lives Matter movement. Megan Thee Stallion called for the protection of Black women and called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron over his handling of the Breonna Taylor case. During Megan Thee Stallion's performance, an audio clip of Tamika Mallory, one of the founding members of the Black Lives Matter movement, was played of her calling Kentucky's Black AG Daniel Cameron “no different than the sellout (n-word) that sold our people into slavery.”

Megan said, “We need to protect our Black women. We love our Black women because at the end of the day we need our Black women. We need to protect our Black men, we need to protect our Black men. I am tired of seeing hashtags about Black men.” The news of Megan’s powerful speech spread like a wildfire on Twitter. One supporter said, “Meg is so beautiful and her body is out of this world. Most of all I love the message she gave. It is true. Let’s love and protect Black women. We are tired of seeing hashtags.” One Twitterati asserted, “Imagine not being Stan of this woman!! I love her, queen”.

One social media user added, “I love the message but she lacked a lil stage presence. ofc I love that she’s using her platform but ofc be a little more enthusiastic. (pls don’t hate on me or attack me. i am not hating on her)” One fan stated, “It honestly annoys me the hate she gets, especially about her shooting, I’m happy she’s still continuing to stay positive and empower other Black women”. While sharing a few photos from rapper’s SNL performance, one posted, “Megan Thee Stallion gave a message to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron during her #SNL performance”.
