Megan Thee Stallion has angered more than just Nicki Minaj with her diss track "HISS." The family of Megan Kanka — whose murder made her the namesake of Megan's Law — is looking into legal options over the bar.

The following article contains potentially triggering material relating to sexual assault and violence. If you believe you have experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct and are looking for support, consult the Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime to find resources in your area.

A recap for those who aren't chronically online: On Friday, Megan dropped "HISS," which seemingly takes aim at Minaj's husband and brother, who have both been convicted of sexually assaulting girls under 18. "These hoes don't be mad at Megan, these hoes mad at Megan's Law," she raps.

The law in question was named after Kanka following her sexual assault and murder by a man who was not required to list himself as a sex offender. Federal US law requires information on sex offenders to be made available to the public.

As per TMZ, Kanka's father, Richard Kanka, finds the law's mention in "HISS" "disrespectful" and "highly offensive." He said that he will pursue legal advice to see if Megan can be held legally accountable for the mention.

Kanka has allegedly not listened to "HISS," and only heard about the line from one of his children. He also admits that he's not a fan of rap music generally.

Following the release of "HISS," Minaj responded with a weekend of online retaliation before dropping her own diss track, "Big Foot," to mixed reviews.
