Drake Hit With Homophobic Slur During ‘Australia’s Future Music Festival’

Published: Thursday 5th Mar 2015 by David

Chris Brown & Tyga aren’t the only musicians taking aim at ‘Mine’ rapper Drake this year.

For, he’s been hit with a homophobic slur, sent his way by Die Antwoord’s Yolandi Visser.

Her surprising remarks after the jump…

Billboard reports:

Well, this is upsetting. Drake and Die Antwoord are both currently playing Australia’s Future Music Festival, which hits five cities on the continent between Feb. 28 and March 9.

But that’s not the disturbing part. Following the March 1 show in Perth, Die Antwoord’s Yolandi Visser called Drake a “massive f–got” over Instagram.

Drake has not yet responded publicly to the comments, but given his popular stature compared to Die Antwoord’s — and their poor taste — this is probably the best decision.

Die Antwoord has addressed this issue in the past. Their DJ, DJ Hi-Tek, is homosexual, and apparently, the group believes it is entitled to use the term more freely. In a 2011 Huffington Post interview, rapper Watkin Tudor Jones (aka Ninja) explained:

I’d like to set the record straight here once and for all. Number one: DJ Hi-Tek is gay. So there you go. Now you all know. Number two: Dj Hi-Tek says the word f–got doesn’t hold any power over him. Hi-Tek says f–got all the time cause he’s like, kind of taken that word and made it his bitch. Number three: Just to be fucking clear, the Antwoord is not homophobic… Number four: It comes across to us that some people from America are heavy sensitive about the use of certain words. But the thing is, what you need to understand is, we’re not from America. We’re from South Africa. And South Africa people aren’t so pumped up about these words.

      He can be gay and sit them yellow cakes on my tongue.

    Smh! I will never understand why people have to be SO hateful because of who THEY choose to have in their bedroom. I’m not saying Drake is gay, I’m just saying though. Even IF he was, that’s not anyone’s business.

    And because Drake isn’t out her acting like a thug, that means he must be gay? People are so fvcking stupid. I also agree with the first commenter, who is that anyway? Lol

      Did you even read the article?

      • No favs, just here for the music March 5, 2015

        I did but that doesn’t excuse for me, sorry. Just sounds like damage control to me

    I could care less, people use that word freely in other countries and the word over there doesn’t poses the same power as it holds in sensitive prude ass America. there is no need for Drake to clap back or be in his feelings if he know he isn’t gay. Move anlong and brush it off.

      Girl bye you sound ignorant, it might not hold the same power in other countries but doesn’t mean other countries don’t find it offensive what kind of mentality is that Cleary Americans finds the word “fagg0t” offensive, so you what you’re basically saying that is OK to use it if it’s not offensive to them you sound stupid and ignorant

      • No favs, just here for the music March 5, 2015

        Exactly! It’s hateful and very ignorant. If some white person went out their way and called me a racial slur and tried to cover it up by saying “well the DJ is black so it’s ok” “Where, I’m from, they use the racial slur more freely” like no, gtfoh smh. I would take high offense to that.

    Smh oh die antwoord why am i not surprised they even called nicki a stupid h**(which she deserved) but they are probably fishing for some publicity they do have a movie coming out

  5. blue March 5, 2015

    people really are too sensitive. Most of this words americans get so hot and bother about hardly mean anything for most countries. In my country a white guy can call a black guy a n**** and nobody would bat and eyelash.

    And the guy explained, sorry if it hurt your feelings but nothing bad was meant by it.

    • No favs, just here for the music March 5, 2015

      That’s fine, and good for you. Just don’t forget to keep it in your country though.

  6. dd March 5, 2015

    Did he call drake a super f** lol

  7. robyn March 5, 2015

    I’m from south africa and that word is very offensive here. I love die antword but that really is damage control

  8. @rihicon March 5, 2015

    Drake shouldn’t respond, no one even knows that person and responding would be giving him free promo

    This story is irrelevant, Everyone knows Drakeisha is a queen, and major diva behind the scenes.

    Its no surprise he was called that, from the stories Ive heard about his attitude behind the scenes, That word was saying the least. The word isnt even derogatory anymore. And some people do get so b*** hurt over it.
