Rappers Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby engaged in a Twitter spat on Saturday after DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, reportedly shared a tweet making light of a 2020 shooting.
DaBaby retweeted a tweet that said, “I guess @DaBabyDaBaby and @torylanez cool now [because] the[y] shot somebody and don’t have to do no jail time,” according to Vulture.
The tweet referred to a Memorial Day Weekend shooting in which a member of DaBaby’s entourage was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to ABC News. But it also referenced a shooting last summer that injured Megan herself.

Rapper Tory Lanez allegedly shot Megan in the foot during a pool party in July 2020. In October 2020, Lanez was charged with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, concealed firearm in a vehicle, CNN reported.
But DaBaby, who collaborated with Megan on “Cash Sh–” and “Cry Baby,” said in a subsequent tweet that he did not intend to retweet “no silly s—” and has been focused on promoting his new single, “Ball If I Want To.”
DaBaby said that he tried to undo the retweet, but that the app didn’t let him. In a screen recording the rapper posted on Twitter, he appeared to not be able to undo his retweet.
It was not immediately clear whether this was a glitch in the app. The retweet is no longer visible on DaBaby’s Twitter page.
Twitter did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Without addressing DaBaby directly, Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, tweeted that she wished people would stop “downplaying” the summer 2020 shooting, which she previously told GQ was “the worst experience of [her] life.”
“Support me in private and publicly do something different,” the Houston rapper said in a tweet on Saturday. “These industry men are very strange. This situation ain’t no damn ‘beef’ and I really wish people would stop downplaying it like it’s some internet shit for likes and retweets.”

DaBaby, who collaborated with Lanez on the song “SKAT” in 2020, said in a tweet that he had “no bad energy” for Megan, and urged her to “stand on what you stand on without feeling like I’m against ya.”
Representatives for Megan and DaBaby did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
