Drake like many celebrities last night payed homage to President Barrack Obama after giving his powerful farewell speech to the nation. But the Canadian rapper’s clever homage may have earned him some Ls in the eyes of some fans.
Drake posted a meme of his face over President Obama’s with the caption, “As a Canadian that calls America home for part of the year I will always carry your words and the memory of your time in office with me as inspiration. Big up yaself O.”
It wasn’t what he wrote that caught the attention of some fans but the actually photo itself. The reactions were swift and unkind with some folks calling it a disrespect to the president.
“Drake picture of himself as Obama is so disrespectful. He feeling himself too much,” one fan tweeted, while another added “We’ll know that JLo and Drake are for real if she’s willing to be see with him in public after that that Obama IG.”

Some folks did defended Drake calling the meme an innocent gesture from the Toronto rapper.
