Let it be known that Drake will not stand idly by and allow sexual harassment to happen around him.
On Wednesday, the rapper noticed a man inappropriately touching women in the crowd during his performance. Needless to say, Drake went “0 to a 100, real quick.”
He did not hesitate to call the concertgoer out saying, “If you don’t stop touching girls, I’m gonna come out there and f*** you up.” The rapper can be seen in an Instagram video, taken from the crowd, pointing directly at the misbehaving fan, and repeating his warning, “If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m gonna come out there and f*** your ass up.”
The crowd at the Marquee nightclub in Sydney, Australia where Drizzy was performing, according to The Cut, can be heard cheering for the rapper as he calls the man out.
Sexual harassment and assault have been hot topics in the media ever since the New York Times published an investigative report in sexual harassment and assault allegations made against Hollywood giant Harvey Weinstein. Since then, allegations against many other public figures, both in the media and in politics — from Louis CK to Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore — have emerged.
With the spotlight on the issue of sexual assault and harassment, especially in Hollywood, several industry insiders have spoken out about the “open secret” of Weinstein’s misconduct and have called on men to speak up about sexual harassment when they witness it or are made aware of it.
Global Citizen campaigns in support of gender equality and to eliminate gender-based violence. You can take action to support a world where women and girls are treated fairly and equally here.
But Drake clearly doesn’t need to be reminded to call out sexual misconduct when he sees it.
