Drake Mirror Selfie or Drake's Gay Mirror Selfie refers to a mirror selfie taken by Canadian recording artist Drake that was posted to his Instagram Story in which the rapper is wearing an oversized wool sweater and holding his hand up to his face, almost resembling a cat paw. The photo was mocked across social media in the days following its upload, resulting in a number of memes, with many users accusing Drake of being gay and being unable to deny supposed "gay allegations" after the photo.
