“Just Hold On I’m Staying Home”: Twitter Reacts To Drake Pulling Out Of Wireless Festival ‘Due To Illness’
Twitter was awash with angry fans today as rapper Drake pulled out of this weekend’s Wireless Festival because of ‘illness’.
The Canadian rapper come crooner was due to perform in both London and Birmingham but has pulled out of each gig and released the following statement:
““I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me.”
Drake was due to perform at the BET awards this week but failed to show, despite winning the Best Male Hip Hop Artist award. Speculation has been rife ever since that he was set to pull out of this weekend’s festival and fans’ worst fears came true this morning following the rapper’s announcement.
As you can imagine, fans were pretty angry that they won’t be seeing the rapper perform this weekend and those in Birmingham were even angrier after they learned that he’ll be replaced by Rudimental, whilst London get Kanye West. Not exactly a like for like replacement, is it?
Though there are some that are understandably pissed off that they won’t be seeing the rapper this weekend, Twitter also brought on some of the best tweets from some who are delighted that he’s been forced to cancel…
