Drake Denounces Report He Disrespected Muslims

By HHL Editors

Earlier this week Twitter controversy erupted over Drake's stage banter during a show in England.

"You got on that hot ass scarf right there, you gonna have take this off. You gotta turn the motherfucker up. You gon have to come out that shit,” Drake said to a female fan in video posted to Twitter.

Drake took to Instagram to deny there was any hijab involved, and denounce the "fake media story."

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.
