Drake may be one of the biggest names in music, but not everyone is a fan.
The Canadian rapper was the surprise headliner at Tyler, the Creator’s eighth annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival in Los Angeles on Sunday night, and apparently it was a bad surprise for many of the attendees.
Drake received huge boos from the crowd, reportedly leading him to end his set after only 20 minutes.
On Monday, Tyler, the Creator took to Twitter for a NSFW rant about Drake being booed at his festival.
Drake then addressed the booing on Instagram with humour.
“Plot twist…just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30,” he said along with some pictures of the night.
During Monday’s episode of Global’s “The Talk”, co-host Eve defended the rapper, explaining that no one should be booed off stage.
“No one wants to ever be booed. Being booed on stage is the worst feeling that could ever happen,” she explained. “I think what happened in this particular situation, is that Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean, their music is just different from Drake. While there may be some bleed over, the crowd is totally different. This wasn’t Drake’s crowd. He’s a great artist. We all love Drake. This just wasn’t his crowd. I think some artists would have gone off. I think they would have let their ego take over and could have gotten mad at the audience.”
Fellow co-host Carrie Ann Inaba then added, “I love the way Drake handled it. I think he was very respectful.”
“It’s been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me,” Drake could be heard saying in a video of the incident shared to social media.
Going by a number of the videos posted to Twitter, it appears that many fans had assumed Frank Ocean was going to be the surprise headliner.
Many on social media slammed the people who booed Drake off the stage.
