Drake has officially denied any accusations where he is said to ask Muslim woman to remove their Hijab at his concert earlier this month. In fact, there were no indications that the scarf he was referring to was actually a piece of religious clothing. In response to these rumors, a lot of his fans had decided to boycott his music and have been using the hashtag #DrakeIsOverParty to make it a trending topic all over social media.

 

Drizzy deaded these fake posts and assumptions by posting a picture, on February 10, on Instagram of himself in front of an over sized moon that captioned the following:

 

“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.”

 

The irony in this is that a few days before Drake had posted this comment following all the fake rumors that were spreading like furry on the internet, he had addressed the crowd at one of his shows by saying ,”every day I wake up and see all this bullsh** going in the world, people trying to tear us apart, people trying to make us turn against each other”. He then goes on by adding “My proudest moment — take a look around in this room, you’ll see people from all races and all places.”

 

This goes without saying that he is directing his comments toward the new POTUS, Donald Trump, because he finally says “If you think one man can tear this world apart, you’re out of your motherf—ing mind. It’s on us to keep this sh– together. F— that man.”

 

On this, it is pretty clear that Drake does not have any racist intentions when addressing his fans at his concerts. The comments mentioned above are proof that Drake believes in a united world where everyone is an equal.
