This article originally appeared on VICE Canada. During a performance at an Australian afterparty, Drake stopped mid-song to lose it on a fan.
The interaction, which was caught on video and posted to Instagram, was with a person in the audience who seemingly kept groping girls within the rappers eyeline. “Yo, stop that shit,” Drakes tells someone onstage before pointing out into the crowd.
“If you don’t stop touching girls, I will come out there and fuck you up,” he said before reiterating himself. “I’m not playing—if you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m going to come out there and fuck your ass up.”
The crowd, understandably, lost all their cool at that moment. The video was taken by a user named @louisesukari at an afterparty following Drake’s show in Sydney on November 15.
“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,” reads the caption.
“Violence against women, six God says no.”
This isn’t the first time that Drake has shown signs of being woke. Not all that long ago, in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Drake said that he turned down a starring role in a Harvey Weinstein film called The Heist. Drake’s manager said that they had vetted the man now accused of countless sex crimes because they “got bad feedback about working with him.”
