Drake is being slammed online by fans who are offended that he went in white face to impersonate celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber in his new “Energy” music video. As Gossip Cop reported, on Friday, the rapper released the video for “Energy,” the latest single from his mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. In it, Drake superimposes his head on different individuals like Cyrus, Bieber, former Toronto mayor Rob Ford, Kanye West, and Oprah as he raps the words to his song. See the video below.

But just hours after Drake released the video, fans started to slam the singer on Twitter for using white face to impersonate some of the celebrities. A Twitter user named “pattppattpatt,” tweeted, “Drake did white face and I’m offended!!!” Another fan who goes by “Royalmrbadnews,” simply wrote, “drake in white face…” Another individual with the user name “noushy” commented, “here come all the white people getting mad that Drake used white face while it is frowned upon to use black face. I just know this is coming.”

Twitter user “LordDeansick” asked, “isn’t this considered ‘whiteface’ or since drake is light enough he gets a pass?” And Twitter account holder “heylooktyla” angrily posted, “Ppl are mad saying drake did #whiteface in his video HES NOT MAKING FUN OF THEM FOR BEING WHITE. In no way are white ppl victims here so stfu.”

“Mrbenm247” posted a Gif of Drake as Bieber, noting, “I see it’s ok for #drake to do #whiteface,” while “jordanangilman” tweeted, “soooo we’re supposed to just be cool with Drake’s #whiteface in his new music video right? Because, you know, it’s not hypocritical at all.” What do you think of the backlash Drake is receiving from fans for going using white face in his video for “Energy?”
