Twitter Blames Inconveniences On Roc Nation & Jay-Z
While Queen Naija is usually the one who’s blamed for anything and everything under the sun, social media users have a new scapegoat: Roc Nation.
Tory Lanez’s Father, Sonstar Peterson, Accidentally Sparked The Trend
Sonstar Peterson, Tory Lanez’s dad, got the ball rolling on Friday, Dec. 23. After a Los Angeles jury found Tory guilty on all three charges in the Megan Thee Stallion assault trial, Sonstar popped off inside the courtroom, according to Law & Crime journalist Meghann Cuniff.
Tory’s father carried his rant out to the front of the courthouse, where he made his feelings on the ruling loud and clear.
“I just stood here in this Los Angeles [court] and witnessed the worst miscarriage of justice that this world has ever seen.”
Sonstar then proceeded to bash attorney Alex Spiro, along with Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez. He also called out Jay-Z and “the whole wicked system of Roc Nation, including Jay-Z.”
In a separate clip, Sonstar passionately proclaimed that—by the powers above—Roc Nation will “crumble”
“My God almighty, I call Heaven and Earth…Roc Nation, you will crumble! I am an apostle of God, and you will know who I am!”
“I’m calling on the Heavens and the Earth … Roc Nation, you will crumble! I am an apostle of God, and I will be heard.” Tory Lanez father as he left

Twitter Users Run With The Roc Nation Excuse
With Sonstar declaring that Roc Nation is to blame for Tory Lanez being convicted, Twitter soon began having a field day.
Many humorously expressed that they were initially in disbelief over the accusation.

One user pointed out that, rather than Roc Nation, maybe Sonstar should be giving Tory’s defense the side-eye. Sonstar was also implored to take accountability for his son’s “life choices.”

Blaming Roc Nation and God instead of terrible parenting and individual life choices is crazy.
