After being a victim of gun violence in 2020, Megan detailed how people questioned what role she played in the assault rather than condemning the person who assaulted her. No one was willing to protect her during or after the shooting. She told The New York Times, "And it's ridiculous that some people think the simple phrase 'Protect Black women' is controversial. We deserve to be protected as human beings."

She displayed the names of other victims on the screen during her virtual concert in 2020. She posed the question that we all want an answer to, "Why is it so hard being Black in America?"
