Don’t celebrities ever learn that a Twitter rant isn’t the way to go?
Rapper Drake tweeted in irritation after Rolling Stone
replaced his cover story with one dedicated to Philip Seymour Hoffman, the actor who passed away
earlier this month.
"I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil,” one aggressive tweet
"I'm done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That's the only way my message gets across accurately,” he concluded.
In an unsurprising move made by many before him, he later deleted his outburst.
On Friday, the 27-year-old decided to clarify the situation
on his blog with a post entitled “Tough Day At The Office
“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,” Drake wrote. “I respect Rolling Stone for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover. I guess this is a day to learn and grow.”
In other words, when you’re angry in that moment, do NOT pick up your phone and open the Twitter app.
You will end up regretting it every time.
