Yes, the Canadian rapper has incurred the wrath of Serena fans everywhere after he showed his face at Arthur Ashe stadium, where he oversaw yet another gigantic upset in sports.
Earlier this year, Drake watched as the Toronto Raptors, for which he works as a “team ambassador,” fell to the Washington Wizards in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. He also watched his favorite college team, the Kentucky Wildcats, lose to Duke in the NCAA Championship final.
Drake’s also been blamed for Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel’s lackluster career, LeBron James’s cramps during his last year with the Heat and the Seattle Seahawks latest Super Bowl loss.
But none of those seemed to sting sports fans on Twitter as acutely as his presence at Williams’s historic loss did on Friday.
People called Drake names.
They demanded he be banned from all future sporting events.
ESPN reporters begged Drake to leave during the match.
Some, however, think Williams should’ve known better than to invite the alleged curse to watch her.
But that might not be fair. Williams and Drake are rumored to be dating, Kentucky Coach John Calipari and Drake were just friends. But if Williams takes the Internet’s advice and breaks off her relationship with Drake, the rapper won’t have to search long for another athlete to latch on to. Enter Olympic runner/bobsledder Lolo Jones.
Vinci, though, might want to be careful.
