NEWARK, NEW JERSEY - SEPTEMBER 13: Tory Lanez performs on stage at Prudential Center on September 13, 2019 in Newark, New Jersey.

Following an Instagram Live session, where Megan Thee Stallion talked about her shooting incident involving Tory Lanez, fans began unfollowing Lanez and even launched a petition to have Tory Lanez deported back to Canada.

“Deport Tory Lanez (Daystar Peterson) back to Canada and ban him from coming to America FOREVER. This little 5’3 man with a big ego has contributed nothing to the American Economy and promotes violence and violence against women,” the petition read. “Furthermore, he should be banned from the United States FOREVER for intentionally trying to harm Megan the [sic] Stallion. SEND HIM BACK TO CANADA ASAP!”

At the time of reporting, almost 15,000 people signed the petition addressed to the Department of Homeland Security. The petition that’s hosted on Change.org was launched on the Canadian singer-rapper’s birthday (July 27), which made his name trend on Twitter.  Many fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts regarding the situation and the possibility of the singer getting deported. Check some of them out below.
