Drake's Muslim fans are mad after the rapper requested a concertgoer to remove her "hot ass scarf."

Drake earned praise when he revealed he wasn't feeling a certain "man" trying to "turn people against each other." Now, another one of his concert ad-libs has gotten him in hot water instead.

The Canadian was bantering with a female fan close to the stage when he asked her to remove her "hot ass scarf." His Muslim fans, assuming that the woman was wearing a hijab, are calling for a boycott for the perceived Islamophobic comments.

“You got on that hot ass scarf right there, you might wanna take this off. You gotta turn this muthafucka up," Drizzy says in the clip. "You gotta come out of that shit."

Though he never mentioned a hijab, fans are upset and many Twitter users are lambasting Drake. The video doesn't prove the so-called "scarf" in question is a religious piece of clothing. Still, many are calling for a boycott.

It's unclear when the video was shot but it was posted February 2, a few days before he made comments about "bullshit going on in the world." The 6 God has yet to comment on the controversy.
