Drake Not Happy About Walgreens and Macy’s Using “YOLO”

Despite the festive season, Drake has not been in the most peaceful state of mind recently. The Toronto native is not happy about certain retail chains for selling items with "YOLO" on them – an abbreviation that he helped to spread significantly in today's pop culture. He took his anger to Instagram where he uploaded two images with following captions:

"Walgreens....you gotta either chill or cut the cheque"

"Macy's...same goes for you."

    there's no way in hell that dumb snow mexican coined YOLO, and regardless if he did, there's no copyright on that. the fact that he'd even make a comment like such makes him look like a douche.

  • Goose

    what a faggot.... yolo is lame as fuck anyway homie get real

  • BitchesOnMyDick5950

    alot of things make drake look like a douche. This just adds to it.

    "However, since the 19th century, the spelling cheque (from the French word chèque) has become standard for the financial instrument in the Commonwealth and Ireland, while check is used only for other meanings, thus distinguishing the two definitions in writing.["

    dumb ass.

    If he didn't trademark it there's no contest

  • WallStreetBull

    If he didn't trademark the phrase, he has nothing to complain about. If he did trademark the phrase, then his anger ought to be directed towards filing a lawsuit rather than instagram. Either way, he's an idiot.

    Drake's Jewish like me, and we never let a opportunity to make money that we rightfully deserve go to waste. "Yolo" is like Kanye's that shit "Cray" You can't just steal somebody's phrases and not pay them, I mean come on!

  • prettyfl

    I'm not happy about the word YOLO at all.

  • ninezero

    crazy instrumentals for yall!!


  • gfresh

    Well you simply can, if it is not protected under copyright laws its not rightfully his phrase, therefor anyone can use it. I can't see Drake making one cent off of this, or either of those companies even considering what he said as serious, Jews aint so smart after all huh.

  • Mayday416

    If he should learn anything from Wayne, it's to trademark catchphrases before they really blow up (eg) bling bling...

  • chicasso

    Calm down motherfukers. (Dave Chappelle's voice*) I dont think he's serious about this.

  • CMON

    But why the fuck is the media making a big deal about these two posts...Im pretty sure he was being sarcastic smh

    The best part of drakes Christmas posts was the pic of that weird ass dark room with the single chair and lonesome stripper pole!! That shit was funny, awkward, and creepy as FUCK ahahahahahahahahahhaahaha
