While performing at an afterparty in Australia, rapper Drake stopped mid-song to call out a fan in the audience who was allegedly groping women.
The incident was caught on video and posted to Instagram, and it shows Drake say, “Yo — stop that shit,” while pointing out someone in the audience.
“If you don’t stop touching girls, I will come out there and fuck you up,” he said. “I’m not playing, if you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m gonna come out there and fuck your ass up.”
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.

As VICE points out, sexual assault is something that’s been on Drake’s radar for a while.
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 and they “got bad feedback about working with him.”
