More Die Antwoord More Die Antwoord

Member of South African rap-rave outfit Die Antwoord, Yolandi Vi$$er doesn't appear to be much of a fan of fellow Future Music Festival artist Drake.

The pint-sized vocalist for the high-energy outfit took to her Instagram account on Saturday after FMF Sydney, posting an image of the Canadian rapper, accompanied with the quote, "I'm a massive faggot." The pic was also captioned: "Fuk. Drake was kak."


Yolandi's fellow band member Ninja is also said to have posted the same image, though it's since been deleted.

Die Antwoord have in the past defended accusations of homophobia, revealing in 2011 that their other band member, DJ Hi-Tek is gay, after their song Fok Jullie Naaiers featured use of the word "faggot".
