Drake allegedly received threats from terrorist group Isis after he told four Muslim girls at his concert to take off their hijabs. During his London show, the Canadian rapper was heard telling the women to remove their head scarves.

In a video reportedly shared by Islamic website Izaha.com, as quoted by MediaTakeOut, Drake said: "I see you four girls right there, I hope you having a good time. You got on that a** scarf right there, you might want to take this off... You don't need to come out with that s**t."

The webiste claims that the Isis has issued a public threat against Drake as they believe he "disrespects" Islam and its customs and traditions.

However, Drake has come forward, and addressed the reports. He wrote on Instagram: "I make a point every night to end my shows on tones of unity and love so, to find out that I am being utilized in a fake media story about me disrespecting Muslims is devastating to me. At my show in the 02 in London I was talking to 4 women one of whom was wearing a jacket and a winter scarf, I made a comment about taking off the scarf because I enjoy friendly banter with the fans."

"I am well aware of what a hijab is and I would never make a disrespectful comment like that in my life towards someone who is wearing one. I am proud that my closest friends and fans come from all different religions and races, perhaps whoever made up this story should spend more time learning about other cultures and less time trying to divide us," he concluded.
