Things We Saw Today: Drake Has a Zero-Tolerance Policy for Sexual Assault While He’s Performing

Heads up, if you’re planning to use the cool, sexy vibe of a Drake show to sidle up to women and touch them without their consent, that is 100% unacceptable, and Drake agrees. In the video above, shot during an after-party event in Sydney, Australia, Drake stops mid-rap to call out a man in the crowd. He shuts down the music, points directly at the guy and tells him, “If you don’t stop touching girls, I’m gonna come out there and f*ck you up.” As if that weren’t satisfying enough, the crowd’s response is overwhelming. Take heed, pervs and skeevs, your non-consensual shit will not be tolerated any longer. (via Buzzfeed)
