It’s handled! Kerry Washington called out Adweek for their photoshop fail in the classiest way.
Toronto photographer Micheal Massie thinks Drake owes photographer Matt Small “a polite apology”. This is Massie’s version of events in an alleged confrontation between Drake, his security and a Toronto photographer.
So, this will sound insane, but shooting at the pier tonight was upsetting for me as a photographer. I was shooting next to 3 others, when the helicopter in this photo swooped over and landed right next to the end of the pier. We all tried to shoot it, because, helicopters are cool, I guess. Once, it landed I returned to focus on the sunset but one of the other 3, who I had not met before, walked over towards the chopper and took more photos. I saw people come out of the chopper, one even hopping the fence to go up to the photographer. I watched closely, nervous for him, as two men started touching his camera. He yelled "Help! Call the police!" I took out my phone and walked over yelling I would call the police if nobody explained what was happening. This is when I realize one of the men around the photographer was Drake ( @champagnepapi ) They stopped touching his camera and Drake asked me who I was and argued with me that no one could take pictures of him and his friends. I told him my name and that he wasn't allowed to touch him or his camera and he is allowed to be shooting on public property. A short argument continued until they left for their limo, and walking away, I kid you not, Drake looked back and pointed at me and said "I'm gonna find you Michael!" (I assume he meant if I post photos of him, though I took none) The other shooter seemed shaken and left nervous, if he's reading this and wants to contact me, I encourage him to. As for Drake, I'm sure being photographed gets exhausting but you can't try to take peoples' cameras or touch them. If this message gets to you, there's no need to "find me", I've done nothing wrong. I hope you realize you can't do things like that. #hypetoronto #weownthenight_to #visualizetoronto #torontoclicks #blogTO #ig_great_shots_canada #pocket_canada #canadaday #canadasworld #loves_canada #citybestpics #urbanromantix #moodygrams #agameoftones #way2ill #createcommune #thecanadiancollective #oh_canada_ #ic_thecity #globalcapture #superhubs_power #icu_canada #waycoolshots #loves_cityscapes #citybestviews #splendid_shots #heatercentral #urbanandstreet #streetmagazine #cityscapes_bl
In his defence, who hasn’t ever accidentally liked something on Instagram only to quickly unlike and pray that you’re ex didn’t notice that you’re creeping him? Ahem…
