Drake Slams Rumors He Asked a Fan to Remove Her Hijab
Drake is speaking out after rumors began to circulate that he asked a fan to take off her hijab during a concert.
The 30-year-old took to his Instagram to clarify the situation, explaining he was recommending a fan in the crowd remove her winter scarf and jacket.
“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,” Drake began.
He added, “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.”
Drake concluded, “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.”
