The Twitterverse is buzzing with discussions centered around Canadian rapper Drake. The hashtag #Drake has been trending recently, thanks to an incident that occurred during a live stream on Kick.
While attempting to donate $500 worth of subscriptions to another Kick streamer, Drake faced the embarrassment of his credit card being declined. This incident unfolded during a live stream session with Lil Yachty, prompting Drake to exclaim “embarrassing” in a manner that has since become a subject of widespread amusement and imitation.
A barrage of tweets mimicking Drake’s unique pronunciation of “embarrassing” flooded in, with posts like “embarrassinggggg💅🏽,” “Embarrassingggggggggggg,” and “embarrassinggggg 💅💅💅🤭🤭.”
Twitter users took notice, engaging in playful banter about the incident. One user jestingly suggested that the musician would have certainly fired someone after such an ordeal, while another remarked on Drake’s nonchalant attitude following the declined transaction, humorously suggesting that the card must have mistaken it for fraud. Another quip stated, “Confirmed: Drake is just like us—he too experiences embarrassment when his card gets declined.”
Some tweets were aimed at Lil Yachty, Drake’s companion, during the live stream. One tweet read, “Lil Yachty sitting there laughing while Drake gets his card declined, that’s the real embarrassment.”
Speculations arose that Drake’s bank automatically declined the transaction due to suspicious activity, leading some to express gratitude that the bank is vigilant against potential fraud.
Another element of the stream that Twitter users found amusing was Drake’s choice to adorn his nails with a vibrant yellow polish, which he displayed during the same session. This unexpected fashion statement became the target of extensive trolling. An image of Drake wearing yellow nail polish surfaced on social media, with many poking fun at the Toronto icon, suggesting that he was “coming out.”
Despite the teasing, some users embraced the look, with one commenter stating, “Looking like a bright ray of sunshine,” and another concluding, “Awww, his hands are so pretty.”
