Over the last week Drake has been criticized for his courtside manner during the recent Easter Conference finals game between the Raptors and the Milwaukee Bucks. Throughout the game, the Canadian rapper was spotted mocking, laughing, hollering, giving massages, and various other antics deemed “disrespectful” by some.
According to ESPN, this isn’t the first time Drake has been a topic for NBA officials. Last year he was given a slap for a confrontation between himself and former Cleveland Cavaliers center Kendrick Perkins.
Milwaukee Bucks coach, Mike Budenholzer, recently weighed in on the Drake debate, saying that being famous doesn’t give him a free pass for such behavior.
Drake was a hot topic of conversation on today’s conference call with Mike Budenholzer. He said, in part, “There’s certainly no place for fans — or whatever Drake is for the raptors — on the court. There’s boundaries and lines for a reason.”

Drake clearly isn’t paying much heed to the haters. As the shade started to flow, he posted various subtle clapbacks, including the Instagram post that was captioned with a cry-laughing emoji and a shrug.
