Serena Williams, Goddess of Sport, has been denied a spot at the Grand Slam final after losing to Italian player Roberta Vinci Friday.
The stunning upset obviously crushed ardent Serena fans. And it also did a number on rumoured-boyfriend Drake who slinked away from the clapping crowd after the defeat.

But the court of public opinion, bloodthirsty and in need of a new sacrifice, quickly dragged the Canadian rapper back into its forum and demanded repentance.
Somebody pointed out his "Canadian vibes"
Keep Drake and his bad Canadian vibes away from our greats.— Furious Styles (@TheBlkofWallSt) September 11, 2015
While others blamed unpatriotic security guards
And y'all let that singing Canadian come in and root for the greatest American tennis player of all time I blame security. #BlameDrake— Little Stevie Jesus (@HisHeirness) September 11, 2015
Drake a "weird shit" Canadian? What?
All this drake supporting his girlfriend talk, he's Canadian he was probably there just to watch tennis or some weird shit.— Tyler Sexton (@Heavy_T13) September 11, 2015
Basically fans really wanted him to go home

A lyrical-IRL crossover which resulted in tweets like this
DRAKE: "Just hold on, we're going home."
SERENA: "How is that supposed to make me feel better?!?!"— Randy Scott (@RandyScottESPN) September 11, 2015
I bet Drake texted Serena, "Don't worry, I know exactly who you could be, just hold on we're going home." 😂— YONAS (@itsYONAS) September 11, 2015
Dammit Drake. Singing to Serena "we going home" yeah right #drakecurse— Clarence WATTS (@clarencesdb) September 11, 2015

Then someone suggested a wall
We gotta build a wall on our Canadian border as well. Tired of Drake ruining American sports— Young Photo (@stvoraw) September 11, 2015
Because Drake harshed the mellow of American sport
NOT AMERICAN SPORT!
Drake is a Plant from Canada to ruin American sports.— Iron Phist (@PhillyTheBoss) September 11, 2015
Hey Canada, you can keep Drake. We insist.— Damon Amendolara (@DAonCBS) September 11, 2015
