Drake Posts DMs Roasting YouTuber Anthony Fantano
Drake has had enough of YouTube music critic Anthony Fantano's subpar reviews of his albums and is now roasting the popular music critic.
Early Friday morning (Sept. 16), Fantano shared a screenshot of some Instagram DMs he received from Drake.
"Drake slid into my DMs," Fantano captioned the post with Drake's words blurred out. "Drake I love the message. Keep up the good work, buddy."
In response, Drake then shared a screenshot on his own IG of the actual DMs he sent Fantano, in which Drizzy tries to clown the famed YouTuber.
"Your existence is a light 1," Drake wrote, referencing Fantano's album review descriptors. "And the 1 is cause you're alive ... and cause you somehow wifed a black girl."
"I'm feeling a light to decent 1 on your existence," Aubrey added.
In a strange twist, it appears Drake also DM'd Fantano a vegan recipe. However, that post was not shared by Drake so there is no validity to that claim it's real at this time.
Anthony "The Internet's Busiest Music Nerd" Fantano is one of the most popular music critics on YouTube, with 2.6 million subscribers on his TheNeedleDrop YouTube channel. His reviews of Drake's last three albums, Honestly, Nevermind, Certified Lover Boy and Scorpion, have all yielded lackluster results, with none of the LPs surpassing a "light 4" in Fantano's opinion. It looks like Drake disagrees.
Since being publicly called out, Fantano began trending on Twitter. He has reveled in the attention.
"That bitch shared the salty DM to over 100 million people," Fantano added to a picture of a W on Twitter.
"I made that man leak his own DMs," Fantano wrote in a follow-up tweet, along with over a dozen crying laughing emojis.
Fantano also had fun with the viral moment on Instagram. Sharing a photo of Drake's reaction, he wrote as a response, "I literally just tell people my opinions on music."
