Drake Responds to Accusations of Islamophobia

Days after the incident involving Drake telling a woman at his London concert to take her scarf off, the Toronto rapper is responding to accusations of Islamophobia.

"I see you four girls right there, I hope you having a good time," Drake says in a video from the concert, addressing a group of women. He then hones in on one of them and says "You got on that hot ass scarf right there, you might want to take this off. You don't need to come out with that sh*t."

It is unclear from the video if Drake is addressing a hijab-wearing Muslim woman or not, but fans were quick to decry his alleged Islamophobia.

Champagne Papi posted his response in Instagram, saying the incident was a "fake media story."

"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," he said in the caption. "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."
