“I wasn’t protecting anybody, I just wasn’t ready to speak,” Megan said. “That’s not no s— you just immediately get on the internet and start talking about and that’s a lot of y’all muthaf—in’ problem. Y’all take y’all whole life to Instagram and Twitter and make it a f—in’ diary and that’s not me. So, f— y’all and them fake a– blogs and y’all fake a– sources and my fake a– friends.”
