An online Care2 petition is calling out Drake for “intending to make fun of Kid Cudi’s depression” and claims “Mental health is not a joking manner [sic]. According to Mental Health America, the most common disorder amongst suicide victims is depression. Depression or bi-polar disorder affects about 30-70 percent of suicide victims.”
With this, they are requesting Drizzy donate all proceeds from the song to an unspecified charity. More than 5,000 people have already signed the petition that was started by user “Paige D.”
Drake caught heat for the line, “You were the man on the moon / Now you just go through your phases / Life of the angry and famous… Still never been on hiatus / You stay xanned and perked up / So when reality set in you don’t gotta face it.”
Yeah… Drizzy, you might wanna turn coat on this one. If you want to sign the petition yourself, you can do so here.
