Another fan on Instagram also shared, "quarantine live was legendary." But as demands went viral, not all users online were welcoming the idea as some had no problem sharing their distaste for the live show. "This n**ga don’t quit do he!?! I hope that sh*t flops," said a user. Another wrote, "Throw him away. Fml. Canada don't want him anymore."

Tory Lanez is facing one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, concealed firearm in a vehicle, according to a statement by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office shared by CNN. A judge has also issued a protective order against him, which prohibits him from having any contact with Megan Thee Stallion and requiring him to stay 100 yards away from her.
Regarding the shooting, Lanez has denied it and also questioned the legitimacy of her foot injury on his new 'Daystar' album. The new record, however, has had the lowest opening week of his career for units sold and chart positions. The album saw the rapper returning to his social media after a period of silence during accusations.
Lanez spoke out about the criticism on Twitter recently and shared his appreciation for his fans' support. "[Time] will [tell] ... and the truth will come to the light ... I have all faith in God to show that ... love to all my fans and people that have stayed true to me & know my heart ... a charge is not a conviction. If you have supported me or meg thru this, I genuinely appreciate u," he said.

'Quarantine Radio' is an informal show that was conceived by Lanez during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic. The rapper also leveraged the show's viral success to aid families struggling to meet their immediate needs during the pandemic.
The first episode aired on March 24 and at the time, its purpose was for pure entertainment. "I just got on to play some music and I basically was drinking with my fans having a good time and everybody was just kind of enjoying it," Lanez said. It quickly drew 30,000 viewers and "it just started taking off." As 'Quarantine Radio' began to kick off in popularity, Lanez started including talent competitions and featured some A-list celebrities like Drake, Justin Bieber and Lizzo.
