Obama delivered an emotional farewell address to the nation last night and following his speech many took to social media to give thanks to our President of eight years—including Drake. Despite being Canadian, Drake explains that he calls America home for at least part of the year and goes on to pay tribute to Obama.
It wasn’t his message that was the problem, it was his choice for an accompanying photo. Drizzy chose the meme mashup of himself and the legendary President:
Twitter found this to be in bad taste:
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. 😶

Though some did come to his defense:
For the people who don't like the drake -Obama meme he didn't make the meme he just use it like y'all do everyday to say dumbshit 😂
