The New York Police Department has stated that they were using social media to record Apollo Theater ...

A video from the New York Police Department showing Drake supporters departing his Apollo performance went viral over the weekend, claiming that the footage was being shared on social media.

According to Rolling Stone, the officer depicted in the video was a Community Affairs employee who was involved with the 28th Precinct's social media team. The video will not be used for any other reason.

Mayor Eric Adams, who was there for the interview, reaffirmed the NYPD's intentions, according to ABC7. "First we have to be honest with ourselves. Twitter is not real," Adams said.

“When you have people who are sitting at home in the corner of the room, trying to find a reason to divide the NYPD from everyday New Yorkers, they will say that.”

"Drake back to the Apollo!" the mayor declared. "We want our police and community involved."

Drake's Apollo performance was described as a show of "gratitude" and took place on January 21 and January 22.

"Feel No Ways," "Trust Issues," "One Dance," and others were among the special guests on the two nights. Lil Uzi Vert, Dipset and 21 Savage were among the speakers on the setlist.
