The controversial lyric has stirred outrage, especially from Richard Kanka, the father of the late Megan Kanka, in whose honor the law was named. Megan Thee Stallion's diss track, titled 'Hiss,' takes a jab at Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, who is a registered sex offender.

The offending lyrics go, "These hoes don't be mad at Megan. These hoes mad at Megan's Law." The use of the term 'Megan's Law' in a context related to a sex offender has sparked criticism and potential legal repercussions.


Richard Kanka, who played a pivotal role in the enactment of Megan's Law, has deemed the lyric "disrespectful" and is contemplating legal action against Megan Thee Stallion. Kanka expressed his dismay, stating that the use of his late daughter's name in such a manner is "highly offensive to the pain his daughter and family felt."


Megan Kanka was tragically raped and murdered in 1994 by a neighbor and convicted sex offender, Jesse Timmendequas. Megan's parents, Richard and Maureen Kanka, were instrumental in advocating for Megan's Law, which mandates the public disclosure of information about registered sex offenders to protect communities.


The controversy arises not only from the perceived disrespect towards Megan Kanka's legacy but also due to the ongoing feud between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj. In the diss track, Megan appears to target Nicki's husband and brother, both with connections to sexual offenses.


Nicki Minaj swiftly responded on Instagram Live, demanding an apology from Megan and even referencing Megan's deceased mother, Holly Thomas. The feud escalated as Nicki released her own diss track titled 'Big Foot,' in which she didn't hold back, taking digs at Megan's alleged cosmetic surgery and personal life.


A source close to Nicki Minaj revealed that this feud is only the beginning and hinted at more intense exchanges to come. The source claimed that Megan has formed an alliance with Cardi B against Nicki, but Nicki is unapologetic and prepared to escalate the situation. The source warned that if Megan continues the feud, it will get uglier, and Nicki will exploit Megan's weaknesses.

Nicki Minaj's track 'Big Foot' takes direct shots at Megan, questioning her honesty about cosmetic procedures and referencing personal relationships. The feud has become a public spectacle, with fans eagerly awaiting the next moves in this unfolding celebrity drama.

As the tension escalates, it remains to be seen how the legal threat from Richard Kanka will influence the ongoing feud between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj. The clash of lyrics, personal attacks, and potential legal consequences adds a new layer to the complex world of celebrity disputes.
