Drake Calls Out Man for Groping Female Fans at Concert: "I Will F--- You Up"

In June 2016, Drake launched Virginia Black whiskey, which sold 30,000 cases worldwide in its first year and has more than 64,000 followers on Instagram (not too shabby, unless it’s compared with Drake’s 38 million). His father, Dennis Graham, is the face of the ad campaign.

The rapper repeatedly warned the man to stop harassing women at his gig in Sydney, Australia.

The famously unflappable Drake lost his cool, momentarily at least, after a man kept harassing women at a concert on his Australian tour. 

The rapper was playing Sydney's Marquee on Thursday when he stopped mid-song and pointed to a man in the crowd who he had spotted harassing women. “If you don’t stop touching girls, I will come out there and f— you up,” Drake said. 

He added for emphasis that he wasn't "playing" and repeated his threat: “If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m gonna come out there and f— your ass up.” Unsurprisingly, the crowd erupted with screams of appreciation. 

Drake's very public denouncement of sexual harassment comes at a time when the subject is dominating the news and pop culture in the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Bill O'Reilly, Louis C.K. and dozens of other prominent men.
