Drake is being praised after issuing a stern warning to a fan to stop touching women at a performance in Australia this week.
In a video making the rounds on social media, the Toronto hip-hop star is seen briefly stopping an intimate performance of his hit “Know Yourself” at an after-party in Sydney.
He then issues an expletive-laden warning to the fan to “stop touching girls,” and says he’s prepared to go into the crowd to deal with the situation himself.
“If you don’t stop touching girls, I’m gonna come out there and f— you up,” Drake shouts as he points directly at the apparent offender.
The singer was performing at the city’s Marquee nightclub after his concert at the Qudos Bank Arena on the latest leg of his Boy Meets World tour. In the video he quickly repeats himself to the misbehaving fan.
“If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m gonna come out there and f— your ass up.”
“I’m not playing with you,” says Drake, wearing a hoodie and sweatpants, to deafening cheers from the audience.
Many Drake fans took to social media to praise the move, which comes as sexual harassment and assault allegations in Hollywood and beyond dominate the headlines.
