The Champagne Papi a.k.a. Drake took on some Instagram trolling for comedy actor star Kevin Hart and his latest U.S. big screen venture, The Upside, which he thanked fans for their support on in a video.
Kev takes on a lead role in the dramedy as an ex-con out on parole who develops a rather unlikely friendship with a paraplegic billionaire. The film was actually unveiled in 2017 at the Toronto International Film Festival and was slated for a January 2018 premiere for the U.S. However, following the notorious sexual abuse scandal of Harvey Weinstein, whose company handled the original distribution, the film was shelved for its national debut. Fortunately, that didn’t stop its success, as Kev informed in the video, and fans are apparently still lining up at the box office to catch the flick.
Meanwhile, he’s hilariously catching flak from Drizzy about something else that the OVO Sound star believes could use a little lining up: Kev’s beard.
“And it’s because of you guys. Thank you all for supporting this movie…I love my fans!!!!!!!” The Philly-bred comedian gave kudos to the other names starring in the film too. Despite critics’ thumbs-up or thumbs-down, he continued, Kev appreciates fan feedback, which will always come out on top.
“Man that’s so great to hear about how your first week shaped up but what about your barber shape up cause your beard is terrible,” Drake joked. Normally, such audacity from the Champagne Papi would be enough for the two to send Instagram rolling in an all-out Instagram trolling war. We’re not sure if Kev just hasn’t seen it yet or if he’s laying low to meticulously plot his retaliation for Drizzy’s ‘Gram later on. But so far:
