All the Twitter haters were out in full force after UConn beat Kentucky in the title game on Monday night, and many of them had their sights set on rapper Drake.
Drake has developed a reputation as a bandwaggon fan for celebrating with the Miami Heat and Kentucky Wildcats after some of their big wins. He also is a fan of his hometown Toronto Raptors and Blue Jays, and he was even seen wearing a VCU sweatshirt when the Rams made the Final Four.

Naturally, as soon as Kentucky lost, people started clowning Drake. But things got out of hand when this photo of Drake supposedly “celebrating” with UConn after the win started making the rounds:
Unfortunately for all the haters, that photo was shared by UConn alum Rip Hamilton prior to the game starting. And he probably took and shared the picture because he was excited to see Drake.
“Wit my family World Wide Wes and @champagnepapi at NCAA Championship Game. They Cheering for the otherside so off wit their Hea_ #holdat #Uconn” Rip wrote.
Drake may be a bandwaggon guy, but he hasn’t jumped aboard the Huskies van yet, though that does seem like something UConn is intent on changing.

Very well done, UConn.
