Recently, a video surfaced in which Drake allegedly tells a woman in a hijab to take it off. Understandably, the video caused outrage, which led to Drake responding to it. He posted a lengthy, heart felt paragraph on Instagram, which sounds much more like Drake than any video one would have seen:
I make a point every night to end my shows on tones of unity and love so, to find out that I am being utilized in a fake media story about me disrespecting Muslims is devastating to me. At my show in the 02 in London I was talking to 4 women one of whom was wearing a jacket and a winter scarf, I made a comment about taking off the scarf because I enjoy friendly banter with the fans. I am well aware of what a hijab is and I would never make a disrespectful comment like that in my life towards someone who is wearing one. I am proud that my closest friends and fans come from all different religions and races, perhaps whoever made up this story should spend more time learning about other cultures and less time trying to divide us.
In the Insta post, Drake describes how his shows are all about unity, and not being divided, and how Drake’s shows feature people from many different walks of life. Knowing what we now know about Drake, it definitely sounds like an honest mistake, and after all the things we’ve read about him, we don’t think Drake would have honestly done that. We love his relationship with his fans, and we wouldn’t want that to ever go away.
So what do you think? Do you believe Drake? Think he’s lying? Let us know!
