Published Sep 07, 2018Much to the disappointment of many fans out there, Drake suddenly cancelled his TIFF appearance at the last minute yesterday (September 6). He's now issued an apology of sorts, though has offered little in the way of explanation as to why he bailed on the event.
After fans shelled out more than $100 for tickets to the Canadian premiere of Monsters and Men at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Drake offered up an extremely brief video message to festivalgoers instead of himself IRL as originally promised.
"I wish I could be there to share this moment," Drake said in a brief video introduction for the film. "Unfortunately I'm on tour right now."
And with that, Drake was done with his apology.
As previously reported, Drake is credited as an executive producer for Monsters and Men, which tells a story about a community coping with the shooting of a black man by police in Brooklyn.
A previous statement from TIFF regarding Drake's sudden cancellation read, "Monsters and Men is a project very close to Drake's heart. He wishes the film the utmost success and feels strongly about its ability to positively inspire dialogue."
Of course, Drake is currently out on his "Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour" — something he obviously knew about before scheduling his appearance at the film screening.
TIFF runs until September 16. For full film festival information, head over here.
