Rolling Stone put the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman on its most recent cover. The cover was originally meant for Drake and, given the circumstances, you'd think Drake would be okay with it.
The rapper took to Twitter a few days ago to show his distaste for the action and how offended he was. It seems Drake has since deleted the tweets, but they went something along the lines of, "I'm disgusted [they took the cover away] with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."
It seems now that Drake is sining to a new tune, taking to his blog October's Very Own, to clear things up.
Drake wrote, "I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication. My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed. The circumstances at hand are completely justifiable (on the magazines behalf), but I was not able to salvage my story or my photos and that was devastating. They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn't given that option and that made me feel violated. I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that momen," according to the Huffington Post.
What do you think of Drake's actions and apology?
