Sergio’s comments were made during rapper Nicki’s Instagram Live on Saturday night and they didn’t go unnoticed by fans of the two artists.
The comments suggested that the fashion bible director had state his allegiance to Nicki, 41, as he seemingly ‘shaded’ Megan, 28.
Nicki took to social media to hit back at Megan, after she appeared to mock her and husband Kenneth in her new track, Hiss.
Among those commenting was Sergio, who appeared to reference Megan’s shooting by posting a string of feet emojis underneath the video.
Megan Thee Stallion was shot in the foot by Tory Lanez, she testified at trial that shouted for her to ‘dance’ and fired the gun towards her feet when she walked away from an SUV they were in with two others on July 12, 2020.
Sergio then doubled down, by adding: ‘Not ”fragment foot” lol not even a whole foot?’ after Nicki called Megan a ‘bullet fragment foot b***’ during the session.
What Sergio Said in Defense
Sergio has since tried to clear up his comments, insisting that he loves both Nicki and Megan and that his comments were ‘taken the wrong way’.
He wrote: ‘I am a huge music lover and support many artists (especially female artists). Everyone who knows me knows I love Nicki, Megan and so many other musicians.
‘I joined a livestream from one of my fave artists and was excited to hear there’s a new song from her. I made comments that unfortunately were taken the wrong way.
‘I never meant to mock anyone and have always been a fan of both women. My apologies if my comments offended or hurt anyone.’
Sergio – who has 60,000 social media followers on Instagram – books celebrity interviews and photoshoots for the magazine.
