On Sunday night, while the US was watching Super Bowl LI and tweeting about Lady Gaga and eating chicken wings, Drake fans across the pond watched the Canadian rapper rant about President Donald Trump at a concert in London.
Here’s the transcript, courtesy of The Washington Post:
“Every day I wake up and see all this bulls‑‑‑ going in the world, people trying to tear us apart, people trying to make us turn against each other. So tonight, my proudest moment isn’t selling tickets or having people singing songs. My proudest moment, if you take a look around at this room, you’ll see people from all races and all places. If you think one man can tear this world apart, you’re out of your motherf‑‑‑ing mind. It’s on us to keep this s‑‑‑ together. F‑‑‑ that man,” he said.
Although he never directly named the president in his rant, Drake has now officially joined a long list of passionate celebrities who oppose Trump and his immigration ban, and who aren’t afraid to use strong words in expressing those stances.
On Monday, rapper Kanye West, who met with Trump in December 2016, suddenly deleted all of his tweets in support of the president, though it was unclear why. (West has a history of deleting old tweets.)
