Drake feels disrespected thanks to a dead man. And it's not going over well online.

The rapper took to Twitter on Thursday, to complain about losing his prime Rolling Stone real estate as the magazine opted to go with a cover story on the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman instead of the planned one on Drake.

"They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue," he wrote in a note on Twitter that he later deleted. "I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. ???"

Drake, who did his interview well before Hoffman was found dead of an apparent heroin overdose on Feb. 2, had agreed to the sitdown because it came with the cover.

And that wasn't his only perceived slight at the hands of the magazine. He also groused that excerpts released by Rolling Stone focusing on his criticisms of Kanye West's "Yeezus" album were out of context.

All that adds up to him swearing off those "evil" journalists.

Rolling Stone decided to remain above the fray and has declined comment on Drake's outburst, but the Twitterverse is going off.

On the bright side for Drake, at least he has Rihanna's shoulder to cry on.
