SYDNEY, Nov 17 — Social media has been awash with praise for Drake after the rapper stopped a performance in Sydney on Wednesday after he spotted a fan getting too handsy with women in the audience.
In a fan-filmed video that has been widely shared on social media, Drake was in the middle of performing one of his hit songs Know Yourself at Sydney’s Marquee nightclub on Wednesday when he stopped to address a man in the crowd who he saw groping women in the audience.
After pointing at the perpetrator in the audience, Drake can be seen saying: “If you don’t stop touching girls I’m going to come out there and f*** you up. If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls I’m going to come out there and f*** your ass up.”
He eventually continued with his performance, though it’s unclear if the fan got the boot for behaving inappropriately.
The rapper is currently on his Boy Meets World tour. He will continue on to Melbourne next week, where the tour concludes.
