Twitter is reacting aversely to the news that G-Eazy might be dating Megan Thee Stallion. Though he as a history of dating beloved pop starlets, this one has sparked particularly strong backlash.
Early this morning, the rapper G-Eazy posted an Instagram video of himself with fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion.
The former, whose real name is Gerald Earl Gillum, appears to be kissing Meg (real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete) multiple times on the cheek. They were also spotted partying together in Miami, and G-Eazy posted a photo of Megan captioned with a series of blue hearts, sparking relationship rumors.

He was first linked to Lana Del Rey after the two were spotted dancing to Kendrick Lamar at Coachella in 2017. They dated for at least several months, and the rapper apparently inspired Del Rey's song "White Mustang" from her album Lust for Life. But the relationship met its end, apparently partly because of G-Eazy's excessive cocaine use, and the rapper quickly moved onto Halsey.
The pair dated for over a year and broke up twice, and since their final separation they've both dropped scathing tracks about each other. Halsey's chart-topping hit "Without Me" was about how she helped G-Eazy reach the top of the charts, and she also mentioned him on her feature on Post Malone's "Die For Me."
G-Eazy's connections to powerful women are definitely part of the reason why this unremarkable rapper has achieved stardom, which is another reason why fans are feeling protective over Megan Thee Stallion.
This year, thanks to her song "Hot Girl Summer," Meg became a symbol of female independence, strength, and sexual liberation. So, if we're following through with that spirit, the Internet seemingly has no right to tell her off for who she wishes to date.
Still, it's hard not to wish that she wasn't dating G-Eazy, who seems to be the archetypal white male parasite, perpetually leaching off other cultures and other people to further his own career. The racial dynamics of the relationship have also made up a large part of the arguments, and many users on Black Twitter are angry about Megan dating a white dude; on the other hand, some have argued that race shouldn't matter, saying instead that G-Eazy's personality isn't a good fit for Megan's.

Of course, it's really up to Megan in the end—she's her own independent person and an incredible up-and-coming superstar, and none of this really matters. Still, exactly how G-Eazy has roped in some of music's most talented and seductive women is an eternal mystery. Is it his tired bad-boy aesthetic or something more? Did Lana Del Rey teach him to practice anti-Trump witchcraft and did he use it to create a love potion?
It's a conundrum for the ages, but regardless, G-Eazy has provoked the jealousy and ire of fans across the world. Maybe we'll at least get a few collaborations, some live shade (both Del Rey and Halsey have insulted G-Eazy during their shows), and some empowering diss tracks when it ultimately implodes.
