Here is just a full list of things that could not have happened if everyone was still social distancing like they should be. According to TMZ, rapper Tory Lanez was arrested at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, after police were called to an incident outside a residence in the Hollywood Hills. Shots were fired following an argument, and an SUV reportedly fitting the description of Lanez’s vehicle peeled away. After searching the rapper’s car, the responding officers allegedly found a concealed weapon, for which he was charged with a felony. While arresting Lanez, police also took his passenger, Megan Thee Stallion, to a hospital to get medical treatment, after she reportedly cut her foot on broken glass inside Lanez’s SUV.

Fans were quick to point out that both Megan and Lanez had been hanging out at a pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house in the Hollywood Hills Saturday evening, a claim substantiated by video of the party on Instagram Live and, shortly after that, the rest of the internet.

Following his arrest, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to People that Lanez was charged and released after posting $35,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on October 13, but one could argue he’s being punished enough, now that Twitter has discovered the rapper is allegedly five-foot-three from his booking documents and is currently mercilessly roasting him.

Update, July 15: In a new statement shared on Instagram, Megan Thee Stallion has clarified what happened to her during the incident that led to Tory Lanez’s arrest, revealing that she was shot multiple times “as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically hurt me.” She did not name her shooter, nor did she mention Lanez’s role in the shooting. Thee Stallion also says she was not arrested, but was transported to the hospital by police to treat her gunshot wounds and had surgery to remove the bullets. “I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as people,” she wrote.
