Drake is in hot water and he's furious.

A video surfaced of him telling a fan to take off their hot scarf and, immediately, news organizations reported he said that to a muslim wearing a hijab.  The backlash was instant.

Drake had a lot to say about this,

“I make a point every night to end my shows on a time 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 I'm the O2 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 a 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.”

 

So what do you think?  Is he covering his butt or is he the latest clickbait victim?
