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.
I got this close to Drake threatening to jump into the crowd to start a fight with a guy groping a woman in the audience. Violence against women, 6 God says no. #heropapi #protecterofthepeople #6god #legend #viewsfromthe6 @champagnepapi For licensing and usage, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
