A video of Drake at his concert supposedly telling a woman to remove her hijab has been making headlines lately, but the “One Dance” singer has denied the whole story.
The video was from Drake’s recent concert at O2, and according to the person who first uploaded it; the singer was telling a woman wearing a hijab to remove it.
Drake explained everything telling that he was talking to 4 women, one of whom was wearing a jacket and a winter scarf. He told her to take off the scarf in a friendly way and that was everything.
“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,” the 30 year old rapper told.
Read Drake’s full statement below:
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.
