Drake has spoken out after he was criticised for taking a short flight on his private jet.
Drake has been called out for allegedly having taken an extremely quick flight in his private jet earlier this month.
A Twitter account named 'Celebrity Jets' tracked the journey of 38 miles between Toronto, Drake's hometown, and Hamilton, Canada.
They posted a screen capture of the journey to Twitter, and revealed that it used four tonnes of CO2 emissions and 1500 litres of fuel.
Fans were quick to slam the rapper, and noted that the amount of emissions generated from the flight equalled that of the average person would make in a year.
The journey would have taken around an hour to drive the distance, with people calling the rapper a 'criminal'.

She also posted an image of herself and boyfriend Travis Scott with their private jets captioned "wanna take mine or yours?"
People were explaining the small changes they make to combat climate change including using paper straws felt useless when compared to Jenner, Scott and Drizzy's antics.
