On June 23, Mario had everyone shook after wiping the floor with Omarion during their chaotic Verzuz battle. The shine gave Mario an unprecedented career boost. However, Twitter is now quite disappointed with Mario after learning that he featured Tory Lanez on an upcoming track titled “Main One”. Mario’s #MARIOMONDAYS post caused his Verzuz glory to come to a halt when he announced the aforementioned “Main One”. He was apparently pretty excited about featuring the controversial Tory Lanez. Mario tweeted:
The controversy is over the fact that Mario featured and gave a platform to Tory Lanez, who is extremely persona non grata in the industry. Tory Lanez allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion in a fit of assumed short man rage. Twitter went in a buzz after Mario’s announcement, with folks asking him if he didn’t read the room.
Mario must’ve either been living under a rock or his publicity team really decided to take a nap during this collaboration because how else would he not know about the ongoing case between Megan Thee Stallion and Tory? The 35-year-old might now lose multiple gigs which he could’ve easily acquired using his Verzuz winning ticket.
