Petition Created To Appeal Tory Lanez Guilty Verdict, Supporters Call Trial “A Circus” While Slamming “Irresponsible” Jury
The creator of the petition, which has exactly 36,534 signatures at the time of this article’s publication, even suggested that Lanez was a sacrificial lamb that was offered up to do a solid for Black women.

Tory fans attacked the jury – calling them irresponsible – while adding they rushed the decision, which led to the rapper being unjustly found guilty of all three felony firearm counts.
The petition then goes on to make some bizarre claims against “(record) label heads and (the) music industry,” specifically singling out Jay-Z and RocNation.
