Drake was wrong to call J Hus' return a celebration

Whether you love or loathe Drake, you can’t deny the fact that he is
I personally find his love for British Culture cringy, and to use a turn a phrase accustomed to my secondary school self, Drake to me is a bit of a beg. However, my like or dislike of Drake is not the debate I want to bring to light in this article,
J Hus was arrested last June at the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, East London. He was initially stopped by Police as they believed he smelt of cannabis, after which they asked if he was carrying anything he should not have been. This ultimately led to J Hus admitting to being in the possession of a 10cm folding knife. In response to the charge of being in possession of a bladed article, J Hus initially pleaded not guilty before changing his plea to guilty. He was sentenced to eight months in prison in December and only served four before being released last week.
I want to be clear that I do not have an issue with J Hus restarting his career, by all
Six words resonate with me from the letter: “I simply should have known better.” I believe that Drake should have known better too. I believe for him to call J Hus' return to the stage a celebration of sorts is wrong. It is irresponsible, in light of the fact that J Hus was sentenced for carrying a knife, an object which is at the centre of a growing crisis in London and the UK, an object which has taken so many loved ones away from their families in needless violence.
J Hus and Drake have been lauded across
