The disturbing culture of molesting women in crowded places like railway stations, buses or concerts is prevalent across the world. The number of sexual assault and harassment cases have only been on the rise. And over the past few months, more and more women have come forward to report such incidents. In this scenario, what Canadian rapper Drake did for his female fans is very heartening to see. Drake stopped his concert in Sydney midway and admonished a creepy man who was using the concert as an excuse to feel up women.
In the video that has surfaced almost a month after the concert, Drake can be heard saying, “If you don’t stop touching girls I’m going to come out there and f*** you up,” Drake can be seen saying in a video after stopping, mid-song. “You need to stop putting your hands on girls or I’m gonna come out there and f***” you up. The ‘Hotline Bling’ and ‘One Dance’ singer was performing at Marquee nightclub after his Sydney concert at Qudos Bank Arena. The video has been captured by a fan who was standing close to Drake. Drake’s intervention was widely appreciated by the fans attending the concert, as well by the netizens. Reportedly, the crowd went wild each time he threatened to get down on the floor and intervene physically.
Here is the video that has been shared online:
This video has come into the limelight following the recurring reportage of sexual assault cases. One of the major triggers was the numerous sexual harassment allegations against former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. This also prompted women across the world to participate in the #MeToo campaign and share their experiences on sexual harassment. And while we are all hoping for a positive change, it is definitely encouraging to see celebrities like Drake come forward and voice their opinions on sexual harassment strongly. There is really no ‘Fake Love’ here!
