Tory Lanez has refused to remain silent about his 10-year prison sentence as he’s released a “Free Tory” merchandise collection.
With the Canadian crooner behind bars, Tory’s management team posted various t-shirts and hoodies calling for Lanez’s freedom on Friday (August 11).
The tees come in black and white and are on sale for $29.99 while the hoodies are going for $49.99.
“Free Tory … Till It’s Backwards … Live Now @ ForeverUmbrella.Com,” he captioned the post.
Plenty of Tory’s fans flooded the comment section defending his innocence in the 2020 Megan Thee Stallion shooting case.
“Gave this man 10 years like it was nothin smh,” one person wrote while another said, “FREE TORY !!!!! we know you didn’t shoot her we know baby!”
The sentencing played out over two days in Los Angeles court when Lanez — born Daystar Peterson — was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Tuesday (August 8) for shooting Megan Thee Stallion .
Tory spoke out for the first time since the sentencing in an Instagram post on Thursday (August 10) where he promised to see his fans soon despite his lengthy sentence.
He also continued to deny any wrongdoing in the matter and insisted on his innocence. Per TMZ, Tory’s legal team is expected to exhaust all avenues to appeal the rapper’s sentence.
“I have never let a hard time intimidate me,” he began. “I will never never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will. This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved. That’s it.”
He continued: “In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully convicted of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do. I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top.
“This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious. Tough times don’t last, tough people do. To my family, friends and umbrellas thank you for your continued support. See you soon.”
