Iggy Azalea Tory Lanez Letter Reactions

Tory Lanez's sentencing is sweeping pretty much every media corner right now, and Iggy Azalea is, oddly enough, at the forefront. Moreover, social media users had a field day when the judge in Lanez's case revealed that the Australian rapper and singer sent him a letter in support of him, one of over 70 that came in. Later on, she denied supporting him explicitly, and simply said that she was asked to give her honest opinion on the matter. However, after journalist Meghann Cuniff published the entire letter online, people blasted Azalea for her apparent lies and statements.

"I would not write to you on behalf of an abuser," Iggy Azalea said of Tory Lanez in the letter. "I refuse to believe that he would do anything in malice especially to a woman. He said this is an opportunity to humble himself and soften his heart- ironic to hear one of the kindest people I know strive to become even kinder. I’m not shocked- Its who he is. Watering and shining light on others until something beautiful grows. Daystar Peterson is not the pest you’ve heard about, he’s a gardener. He helps others bloom."

Iggy Azalea's Letter To Tory Lanez

Of course, a lot of people clowned the flowery and generous portrayal of the Canadian artist. However, a more salient point was that Iggy Azalea did seem quite supportive of him, even as she claimed that she hadn't spoken to him in a long time. From what this letter indicated, the 33-year-old reached out to him around February, and many took issue with her trying to cover that part up. Still, it's easy to put her statements out of context. Whether she directly addressed the Megan Thee Stallion situation or not, her attempt to exalt Tory Lanez makes it hard to see it as anything other than full support.

Meanwhile, a lot of people also took issue with Iggy's comments given that she alleged mistreatment at the hands of her former partner Playboi Carti. As such, many called her hypocritical for this support. Amid all those criticisms, though, this letter in full only made people clown her even more. Check out some reactions to the letter down below.
