Halle Berry Explains Why Drake’s Use Of Slime Photo Was Disrespectful
Halle Berry is not amused by Drake using her Nickelodeon slime photo to promote his latest single “Slime You Out.” Berry expressed her frustration over the use of the photo which shows her getting slimed at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
On Instagram over the weekend, the Oscar-winning actress posted a subliminal message aimed at the Toronto rapper. “Sometimes you have to be the bigger guy… even if you are a woman,” the photo read on a pink background.
“Didn’t get my permission. That’s not cool. I thought better of him!” the actress wrote in the comments, adding, “When people you admire disappoint you, you have to be the bigger person and move on.”
She also addressed a fan in the comments that noted that Getty Images owns the photo and not her.
“While I do understand your side. That photo is owned by Getty Images. So im sure he got their permission. And paid the fee. why you mad,” the fan wrote.
However, Berry clapped back telling them that it was the principle of Drake using the photo since he previously asked for permission and she declined.
“Cuz he asked me and I said NO that’s why,” Berry wrote. “Why ask if you intend to do what you want to do! That was the f— you to me. Not cool. You get it?”
Drake Delays ‘For All The Dogs’
“Slime You Out” is the first song Drake has released from For All The Dogs since announcing he would drop the project in June. Also, over the weekend, the rapper told fans that they will have to wait a little longer for the album to drop.
“Okay, my dilemma I am faced with is I either cancel [the]show to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show,” Drake wrote via his Instagram Story Saturday (Sept. 16). “I owe you all these memories we are building and anywhere we have missed to date we will be spinning back for sure.”
“For All the Dogs October 6th it’s only right,” he concluded.
