Unfortunately, not everyone’s in love with Drake’s new music video for ‘Energy.’ In fact, a large number of fans are attacking the rapper for using white face to impersonate stars like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. Read what they’re saying here!
Drake, 28, impersonated a number of stars like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus in his new music video for “Energy,” which was released on July 10. He pokes fun at these celebrities in the video, but fans aren’t even bothered by that. Instead, they’re offended because the rapper used white face while doing so.
In his video for the latest single off his mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Drake’s face is superimposed on a number of Hollywood stars, as he raps to the lyrics of his song. It’s pretty cool, but after the release of the video, fans started lashing out at the rapper on Twitter. See what they’re saying below:
