Tory Lanez Has A Message For Fans Poking Fun At His Hair

Tory Lanez is taking a stand with a clear message for his fans. Lanez, born Daystar Peterson, has been battling his on-going felony assault case after a drunken argument allegedly led to the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion where the bullet struck her feet on July 12, 2020, per Rolling Stone. Lanez has claimed his innocence since news broke about his involvement in the shooting. "The truth will come to the light," he tweeted the day after he was charged, adding, "A charge is not a conviction."

Meanwhile, Megan has also defended what happened that night. "The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted," she wrote in an op-ed piece for The New York Times.

While the internet has been heavily weighing in on the case as new details emerge, it appears things have just gotten a little more complicated. According to TMZ, Lanez was placed into custody after a hearing in court in which the judge declared he was in violation of the protective order with Megan Thee Stallion for discussing her on social media. The judge set his bail at $350,000, which Lanez posted shortly thereafter — but as the "Playboy" rapper walked towards his car after being released, his fans seemed to be more concerned about his appearance rather than his legal troubles.

Tory Lanez reveals he has alopecia

When Tory Lanez comes up in conversation, it's usually about two things — his music and his hair. The "Lady of Namek" singer has been open about his hair restoration process, which he told HipHopDx began after he noticed his hairline receding at the corners. "I fixed my corners and then I just let the rest of my hair grow in," he told the outlet in 2019, adding, "Some parts grow a little faster than others, so it be a little unequal when I don't lay it down." 

Fast forward to April 2020, when Lanez found himself trending on Twitter thanks to a now viral video of him that shows a visible bald spot on the back of his head. In the clip, the rapper climbs behind the wheel of a Lamborghini and says he says he feels "amazing," but many of the comments below the video seemed intent on mocking the star. In response, the "Real Thing" singer defended himself against the internet trolls. "I'm fully aware of the bald spot in the back of my head guys," he tweeted. "I rap about it all the time's alopecia.... What's the big deal[?]" 

According to WebMD, alopecia is an "autoimmune disorder that causes your hair to come out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter."
