I have lost count of how many people that need to be cussed smooth out on behalf of Megan Thee Stallion, but at least some of them seemingly understand that they owe her an apology.

On the December 21st episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, host Joe Budden issued one over some stupid, cruel comments he made about the Houston rapper in relation to the Tory Lanez trial surrounding allegations that he shot her in the foot.

Vivica said that Joe needs to sit his “bitch ass down” while Claudia mentioned Joe’s past accusations of domestic violence. The latter is important because if Joe believes one’s actions can cause bad things to happen, what might happen to him at any given moment? Having said that, Joe acknowledged wrongdoing.
