CBC News:– Drake has caused a kerfuffle in Barbados as photos of the Canadian rap superstar posing with fans — both with and without a mask — are circulating on social media.
The Toronto-based performer arrived on Sunday, the same day the Caribbean island reopened to international visitors following a long lockdown due to COVID-19 — with flights from Canada among those permitted to touch down at Grantley Adams International Airport.
His customized “Air Drake” Boeing 767 was spotted at the airport, with a fan’s photo of the aircraft quickly spreading online.
Images of the internationally renowned rapper, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, posing with local fans have also been circulating.
The photos have drawn criticism from some on social media.
“Mask up!! Social distancing please!” posted one user named Betty Holford. “This situation is potentially dangerous.”
Others pointed out the rapper and his group would have undergone testing before being admitted into the country.
