Following criticism he received from reps of Giannis Antetokounmpo as well as Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer for his courtside antics, Drake has now responded on Instagram by letting 'likes' and emojis speak for themselves.
In one post, Drake shared three photos of him celebrating on the court during the Raptors Game 4 victory, one of which included the famous Spiderman meme that likened himself to point guard Fred VanVleet. Although Drake didn't provide any additional context through words in the post, he did make a statement using three emojis that included a crying laughing face, a salt shaker, and a shrug.
From there, Drizzy also took to his IG Story to post a screenshot of a comment that he liked, one that read: "Sports media needs to accept the simple rule the Miami Hurricanes signed into law back in the 80s: if you don't want the opposing team to celebrate and dance, prevent them from scoring, winning, or achieving their objective. Get over it and keep it moving."
Game 5 between the Raptors and the Bucks goes down tonight back in Milwaukee.

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer called out Drake for standing on the sidelines alongside Raptors coach Nick Nurse during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Budenholzer stated, "I see it in some timeouts, but I don't know of any person that's attending the game that isn't a participant in the game a coach -- I'm sorry, a player or a coach that has access to the court. There's certainly no place for fans and, you know, whatever it is exactly that Drake is for the Toronto Raptors."
He added, "You know, to be on the court, there's boundaries and lines for a reason, and like I said, the league is usually pretty good at being on top of stuff like that."
Giannis Antetokounmpo's rep also weighed in on the situation, stating, "Imagine a gig & an athlete on VIP seats, right next to the band, stands up on the stage just to show off during the entire game, knowing cameras are on him, occasionally even massaging the singer. Security & him both allow it. Never seen anything as disrespectful as this before..."
