Who doesn’t love a good beard? Many of our favorite men have sported a beard at one time or another. Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Viggo Mortensen — all sported sick beards. But perhaps no beard was as beloved as Drake’s.

You have to admit, it’s a pretty awesome beard:

However, after his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Drake shaved his face, removing his beloved beard. Though he deleted the Instagram proof of his new shave, a fan account captured it, thus tweeting the image of our shorn hero to the world:

People are not happy, and have taken to Twitter to mourn the loss of Drake’s beard. Luckily, their upset is mitigated with humor, mostly in the form of GIFs:

RIP, Drake’s beard. May you grow back quickly (if that’s what Drake even wants — it’s his face, after all).
