Addressing his decision to remove his feature on the song, Swarmz took to Instagram and issued a lengthy statement.

The rapper said, "After careful consideration with my team, in light of the current circumstances I have decided not to feature on the track "Naughty Naughty", and this track will no longer be released this week."

He went on to say, "While I was aware of the events that occurred between Tory and Megan, I didn't understand the full extent of the emotional and physical trauma that may have been caused, until seeing Megan's posts yesterday. I would like to stress that I do not condone any violence towards women."

Swarmz continued, "As we do not yet know the true facts surrounding what has happened, and out of respect for the parties involved, it would be wrong to go ahead and release the song at this moment in time, and to continue to promote while both parties are under this stress."

"I would like to send my love to Megan, I pray for a speedy recovery, and to thank all of my fans for the love and support thus far."

Tory Lanez has remained away from social media since he was arrested on gun charges, whilst Megan Thee Stallion recently broke down on Instagram Live whilst discussing being shot.
