"I don't be liking some of the stuff on the internet," she said during the livestream, which was captured in a video by The Shade Room. "People don't know what the hell they talking about, they just be saying anything. I didn't like what they was trying to say about Pardi 'cause he is so calm and so sweet."
"That's my boo, and I really like him," Megan continued.
The star also defended herself when a viewer called her a "simp" during the stream, replying back, "I never said hot girls can't have boyfriends," according to Revolt.
"Y'all not about to play with my man," she said of Fontaine, per the outlet. "He don't even be doing nothing to nobody. Yeah, he my boyfriend."
