Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be overlooked or belittled,” Drake wrote in a statement. “This was a lesson in learning for both of us, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to try and right this wrong. J. Cole and I believe it’s the right, responsible and respectful decision to remove the lyrics from the song.”
J. Cole also issued an apology.
