While the concert was in full swing, the rapper asked his DJ to stop the music and approached the audience by pointing at an individual: “If you don’t stop touching girls, I’m gonna come out there and f*** you up.”
This moment was filmed and shared by a fan on Instagram.
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. Violence against women, 6 God says no.🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉 #heropapi #protecterofthepeople #6god #legend #viewsfromthe6 @champagnepapi For licensing and usage, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The crowd went wild with support. On Twitter, netizens have hailed the action of the Canadian singer, even those who obviously do not like the musical style of Drake.
I hate Drake’s music, but at least he’s not a piece of shit and speaks out against the sexual harassment of the women at his show https://t.co/yjVEmwBGVk

Some even cited the importance of his actions amid many allegations of sexual harassment in recent news.
We need more men like Drake who will call out trash who objectify, harass and grope women.

Last August, Architects singer Sam Carter interrupted his concert at the Lowlands Festival in Biddinghuizen, The Netherlands, when he realized that a woman had just been grabbed by a man in the audience.
