Fake Drake is removed from Instagram and people are thrilled
After months of impersonating Drake, it looks like the fake Drake has been taken down from Instagram, and people are thrilled.
On Saturday, July 2, news broke that fake Drake had been banned from Instagram for impersonating Drake. A quick look on IG reveals that Drake’s fake IG account, @izzyydrake, has been deactivated.
XXL has contacted Instagram owner Meta (formerly Facebook) for comment.
Fake Drake, who goes by the name Izzy, caught fans’ attention on social media in November 2021 when he revealed he was being paid $5,000 for event tours. “People DM me like, ‘Hey, you wanna come to my event because I can’t afford Drake, he’s too expensive,” he explained on the no rider podcast. “I will pay you $5,000. $5,000 just for showing up. They pay for my Airbnb, they pay for the flight, they hang everything.”
Last May, the Drizzy lookalike raised his fees to $10,000 for club appearances. However, he may have gone too far with his Drake impersonation.
Last month, a video surfaced showing a fake Drake being kicked out of a club in Houston. However, he claimed the video was staged and a promo for the real Drake. Apparently the clip was to help promote Drake’s new album, Honestly it doesn’t matter.
Recently, the fake Drake announced that he had signed with Celebrity Boxing and challenged the real Drake at a million dollar boxing event scheduled for August 27. Imposter Drake has agreed to stop impersonating God 6 if he loses the fight. Watch the clip below.
Well, it looks like the fake Drake has already lost with his removal from Instagram. Reading the news of the fake Drake getting kicked off IG, people flooded social media with their excitement.
“Drake saw Fake Drake begging on the streets for a celebrity fight like Tiny Tim begging for scraps and called Zuckerberg,” one person tweeted.
“Drake got Drake fake ass banned from the gram? Thank goodness,” another fan wrote.
