Toronto Photographer Claims Drake Threatened Him Over Candid Pictures!

Get the dramatic Drizzy deets HERE!

Woah! Not cool, Drake!

On Tuesday, photographer Michael Massie took to Instagram to share a surprising story about the popular rapper.

The physician — who just enjoys taking photos for fun and sometimes ends up selling the prints online — said that on Tuesday, he was snapping the sunset and the Tortonto skyline at the Polson Pier with a few other photogs, when a helicopter landed near them.

He explained that, since helicopters are fun, they all aimed their cameras at it as was descending.

But the Canadian resident noticed that one shutterbug, whose name is Matt Small, had moved closer to the chopper to shoot some more.

That's when things got dramatic.

He explained in the caption:

"I saw people come out of the chopper, one even hopping the fence to go up to the photographer. I watched closely, nervous for him, as two men started touching his camera. He yelled 'Help! Call the police!'"

So, the Montreal native said it wasn't until he went over to try to help that he even realized Drake was there, adding:

"I took out my phone and walked over yelling I would call the police if nobody explained what was happening. This is when I realize one of the men around the photographer was Drake."

At this point, Michael recalls that the songsmith and his entourage turned their attention away from Matt and towards him, and that the hitmaker asked for his name.

He said that eventually, the artist seemed to threaten him, spilling:

"I told him my name and that he wasn't allowed to touch him or his camera and he is allowed to be shooting on public property. A short argument continued until they left for their limo, and walking away, I kid you not, Drake looked back and pointed at me and said 'I'm gonna find you Michael!' (I assume he meant if I post photos of him, though I took none)."

DAMN.

Whether he took the pictures or not, that's not okay. Like, come on, Drizzy. You were only getting out of a helicopter. What's so wrong with that???

Anyway, the part-time photographer concluded his caption with a message to the 29-year-old, saying:

"As for Drake, I'm sure being photographed gets exhausting but you can't try to take peoples' cameras or touch them. If this message gets to you, there's no need to 'find me', I've done nothing wrong. I hope you realize you can't do things like that."

After the incident, he told The Canadian Press that the musician should really say he's sorry, confessing:

"As a photographer, I was upset by the situation and how Matt was treated. Often I am down at the pier on my own and had I been where Matt was I would have probably done the same with my camera. I worry how it could have turned out without another person there to show up and change the dynamic of the two-on-one interaction. It could have happened to any photographer and it wasn't appropriate. I want nothing from this, but I think a polite apology to Matt for an overreaction to the situation would be appropriate."

Ch-ch-check out Michael's full side of the story (below):

So, this will sound insane, but shooting at the pier tonight was upsetting for me as a photographer. I was shooting next to 3 others, when the helicopter in this photo swooped over and landed right next to the end of the pier. We all tried to shoot it, because, helicopters are cool, I guess. Once, it landed I returned to focus on the sunset but one of the other 3, who I had not met before, walked over towards the chopper and took more photos. I saw people come out of the chopper, one even hopping the fence to go up to the photographer. I watched closely, nervous for him, as two men started touching his camera. He yelled "Help! Call the police!" I took out my phone and walked over yelling I would call the police if nobody explained what was happening. This is when I realize one of the men around the photographer was Drake ( @champagnepapi ) They stopped touching his camera and Drake asked me who I was and argued with me that no one could take pictures of him and his friends. I told him my name and that he wasn't allowed to touch him or his camera and he is allowed to be shooting on public property. A short argument continued until they left for their limo, and walking away, I kid you not, Drake looked back and pointed at me and said "I'm gonna find you Michael!" (I assume he meant if I post photos of him, though I took none) The other shooter seemed shaken and left nervous, if he's reading this and wants to contact me, I encourage him to. As for Drake, I'm sure being photographed gets exhausting but you can't try to take peoples' cameras or touch them. If this message gets to you, there's no need to "find me", I've done nothing wrong. I hope you realize you can't do things like that. #hypetoronto #weownthenight_to #visualizetoronto #torontoclicks #blogTO #ig_great_shots_canada #pocket_canada #canadaday #canadasworld #loves_canada #citybestpics #urbanromantix #moodygrams #agameoftones #way2ill #createcommune #thecanadiancollective #oh_canada_ #ic_thecity #globalcapture #superhubs_power #icu_canada #waycoolshots #loves_cityscapes #citybestviews #splendid_shots #heatercentral #urbanandstreet #streetmagazine #cityscapes_blA photo posted by Michael Massie (@timesmikethese) on Apr 4, 2016 at 7:29pm PDT
