Drake Pauses Show to Threaten Audience Member for Inappropriately Touching Female Fans

Amid the wave of sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood, Drake is making sure his concerts are a safe and welcoming environment for fans -- especially women -- to enjoy. During his recent Boy Meets World tour stop at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, Drake paused his performance to address an audience member who had been inappropriately groping females in the crowd. 

In a fan-shot video from the show, Drake appeared to be in the middle of a performance of "Know Yourself" he and the crowd belted out the infamous one-liner, "Running through the six with my woes." Drake then proceeded to tell his DJ to pause the track so he can directly address one of the fans in the crowd.

"If you don’t stop touching girls, I will come out there and fuck you up," he said. The audience applauded him for threatening the inappropriate fan, prompting Drake to repeat himself so his threat can once again be heard. 

"If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls," he continued, "I’m gonna come out there and fuck your ass up."

Even after putting down the mic, Drake continued to speak to the fan. After simmering down, Drake continued his show.
