Drake is spending most of the month of November in Australia and New Zealand running through a bunch of stops on his Boy Meets World Tour. The Australia/New Zealand leg of the tour kicked off on Nov. 3 and will run through Nov. 20. And it appears as though Drake was involved in a tense standoff with a male fan at a nightclub that he was performing at after one of his shows in Sydney, Australia.
In the clip above, you can see Drake putting on a performance for a large group of fans at the Marquee nightclub in Sydney. Everything is going about how you would expect it to go at a Drake show with everyone singing along to his songs when he abruptly shuts the music off and says that he has something to say. He then points out into the crowd at a male fan who was apparently groping girls and tells him to knock it off. He also threatens to fight the fan if he doesn’t stop what he’s doing.
"If you don’t stop touching girls," Drake says towards the end of the clip, "I will come out there and fuck you up."
The crowd went wild after Drake threatened the fan, but he didn’t stop there. It sounds like the fan either pleaded his innocence or had something to say in response to Drake, so Drake reiterated himself for a second time in an even more threatening manner.
"If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls," he said, "I’m gonna come out there and fuck your ass up."
After calling out the fan, Drake got back to performing, and it doesn’t sound like he had to follow through on the threat he made. But given the current climate and some of the recent stories that have unfolded in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, it’s great to see Drake taking a stand here, even though it’s obviously sad that he had to bring a performance to a screeching halt to address an incident like this.
