Tory Lanez‘s father, Sonstar Peterson, was seemingly upset after his son was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion, but neither he nor Tory hold a grudge against the rapper. In a videoshared to his Instagram, he said that they forgave Meg “a long time ago.”

“Both my son, myself and others of our family have long decided that we are not going to hold any animosity against Megan Pete aka Megan Thee Stallion. We forgave that girl a long time ago. A long time ago,” he said.

Sonstar talked about the importance of excusing someone and letting things go. “Principle of forgiveness is important in order to cleanse one’s heart and soul,” he said. “Hatred, resentment, bitterness — those things can actually diseases of the bones, it has been proven. And it can cause sickness in your body because you’re holding onto something that is negative against the real life force in your life.”

Though they’ve forgiven Megan, Sonstar said that he and Tory will not back down from “the machine” in fighting for justice. 

Tory was convicted of three felony assaults in the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. His father made headlines for his rant about “the worst miscarriage of justice that this world has ever seen.”

Sonstar also called out Meg’s attorney Alex Spiro, Roc Nation COO Desiree Perez, Roc Nation and Jay-Z.

“You who say you rose from the gutter, but you have traded and bartered the souls of young men — and you’re still doing it,” he said at the time.

Tory’s sentencing date has been been pushed back from January 27 to February 28.
