Macaulay Culkin has responded to Drake's use of his Home Alone character to troll the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are currently battling the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals and Drake is a huge fan of his fellow Canadian Raptors. The series is currently tied 1-1, but the popstar has been going out of his way throughout the season to take on the opposing team, often generating quite a bit of attention to himself in the process. Will his antics result in a continuation of the "Drake Curse"?
Drake has pretty much been the Raptors unofficial mascot during the NBA playoffs this year and he is continuing to do so. Last night while in Toronto, he wore a sweatshirt with the Kevin McAllister face on it. Underneath the screaming Home Alone image was the name "Kevin" with a few question and exclamation marks, which is a reference to the Warriors' Kevin Durant, who is injured. This wouldn't be that big of a deal, but Durant is widely regarded as one of the best NBA players in history and he's been out for a month with a calf injury. Macaulay Culkin caught wind of the homemade hoodie and provided a social media post, which reads: "Hey Drake I'm right here, bro. DM me. See you at the BBQ."
Macaulay Culkin doesn't really seem to care all that much about the NBA Finals, but it did give him a significant social media boost for the day, which he used to promote his Bunny Ears podcast and brand. As for Drake, his trolling didn't really work out so well since the Warriors beat the Raptors. Plus, some have been calling the popstar out as a bit of a poser or bandwagon jumper since he has Kevin Durant's number tattooed on his arm.
The world of sports has come down on Drake over the past several months for the "Drake Curse." Italian soccer team Roma is banning players from taking pictures with the popstar after he posed for a photo with Paris Saint-Germain's Layvin Kurzawa. Two days later, the team lost 5-1 to Lille. The NHL is considering a similar ban after Drake was spotted cheering on his Maple Leafs, which coincidentally resulted in a loss to the Boston Bruins. Now, boxer Anthony Johnson has become the latest victim of the "Drake Curse," after posting a picture of himself with the pop star on social media and declaring he was going to beat the curse. He lost to Andy Ruiz Jr. over the weekend.
In addition to the aforementioned victims of the "Drake Curse," The Alabama Crimson Tide and UFC star Conor McGregor can also count themselves as victims. The NBA Finals are still too early to tell, but Drake might want to give it a rest before he claims another victim. But, if he does, please continue to use Home Alone because it's helping out Macaulay Culkin's Bunny Ears brand. You can check out Macaulay Culkin's Twitter response to Drake below.
