Megan Thee Stallion marked her solo debut as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live by delivering a politically -charged message to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
Megan called out Cameron over how he handled the case of Breonna Taylor, a black woman killed by police in March in a no-knock warrant on her apartment.
She sang her hit song Savage, which recently went viral on TikTok, but took a slight detour to make a political statement. “We need to protect our black Women and love our Black Women. Because at the end of the day we need our Black women. we need to protect our Black Men and stand up for our Black men because, at the end of the day, we’re tired of seeing hashtags of our Black men.”
The monologue was interrupted by the sound of gunshots, calling out the fatal shooting of Taylor in her own home on March 13th and possibly referencing Megan herself being shot in the foot after an argument with a friend during the summer.
Megan also did her first live performance of her new Young Thug-assisted single, ‘Don’t Stop’.
