Drake Kisses 17-Year-Old Fan On Stage In Resurfaced Video, Twitter Reacts

"I can’t go to jail yet, man! 17?! Why do you look like that?"

Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docu-series has been stirring feelings of anger, disbelief and more among millions of viewers. In between the likes, replies, and retweets, the sexually inappropriate actions of celebrities and other artists have been popping up. The latest topic of conversation in the Twitterverse surrounds Drake and his actions while on stage.

Footage of the Toronto-native has surfaced and in the 1-minute, 34-second video recorded during his May 17, 2010 show at Denver's Ogden Theater, Drake is seen teasingly touching a young fan with a gentle kiss on her neck and shoulder area after a brief dance. As the audience cheers him on, the rapper stops and turns to the crowd, saying,  "Aye, y'all gonna have me get carried away again. I get in trouble for the sh*t [sic] I do. How old are you?"

The young girls says "17" into the mic, onlookers boo and Drake steps away and yells, "[Sic] I can’t go to jail yet, man! 17?! Why do you look like that? You're thick. Look at all this.”

After the crowd settles down, Drake ends their on-stage experience by saying, “Well, so listen, 17 [sic], I had fun,” he continues. “I don’t know if I should feel guilty or not, but I had fun. I like the way your breasts feel against my chest. I just want to thank you.”

Drake then kisses her on the hand, on both cheeks, on the forehead and finally on her lips before having her escorted off stage.

With previous reports of Drake having a questionable friendship with Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown and rumors of him dating model Bella Harris since age 16, many viewers are saying the OVO Sound co-founder fondled or groped her breast(s) in the video. Watch below and decide for yourself.

Note: Colorado law states that a person of 17 years of age can legally consent to sexual interactions.

Drake has yet to respond to the backlash surrounding the footage.

With the month of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, Waka Flocka Flame shared a major announcement with fans. The rapper and reality star is dedicating his life to suicide prevention and mental health awareness, he shared on Monday (May 25).

“I’m officially dedicating my life to suicide prevention and mental illness! Ya’ll not alone Waka Flocka Flame is with ya’ll now,” he tweeted.

Waka’s younger brother, Coades “Kayo Redd” Scott, died by suicide in 2013. In a follow-up tweet, Waka revealed that he’s slowly learning to accept his brother’s passing.

“You have no idea how it feel[s] to wanna [take] your own life man…my little brother took his own life man…and I deal with this fact every birthday because his birthday [is] the day after mines [sic] June 1st. This year I’m officially accepting the fact that he’s in a better place.”

The 33-year-old recording artist, whose other brother was killed in 2000, opened up about losing his younger brother in a 2017 episode of The Therapist, where he revealed that Kao tried to get in contact with him prior to committing suicide.

“Before my little brother died, I ain’t pick up the phone and I seen him call. I was like, ‘f**k lemme call Kayo back, as soon as this s**t lover.’ And I called him back, no answer.”

“What if I would’ve picked that call up? What the f**k is my little brother going through that made my little brother kill himself?”

2 Chainz’s Atlanta Restaurant Shut Down Over Social Distancing Violations

Less than a month after reopening, 2 Chainz’s Escobar Restaurant & Tapas has been temporarily shut down for violating the state’s social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Department of Public Health and Safety cited the eatery on Sunday (May 24), after receiving complaints about the number of customers inside the restaurant and bar. Georgia guidelines limits occupancy to 10 patrons per 300 square feet.

“When I entered the establishment, the entire facility was full of patrons, shoulder to shoulder, and was unable to enter safely,” a DPS officer wrote in an incident reports according to Atlanta’s WSB-TV. The DPS officer also observed the “same violations” that caused DPS to issue an initial warning to the facility.

The manager on duty had security clear out the room but State Police ordered Escobar to close on Monday (May 25) after the violations were not fixed. Various videos posted to Escobar’s Instagram Story prove that the venue was indeed packed with customers.

In April, Georgia’s governor announced that restaurants, hair salons, and other businesses could reopen for in-person service despite the state's rising cases of COVID-19. Escobar, which had been serving takeout orders only, faced backlash after revealing plans to reopen for dine-in service following the governor’s announcement. The restaurant decided to remain closed for a little while longer and fed several of Atlanta’s homeless before fully reopening in early May.

Doja Cat Speaks Out After Being Accused Of Joining White Supremacist Chat Rooms

After trending online for the entire Memorial Day Weekend, Doja Cat publicly addressed allegations of racism and engaging in white supremacist chat rooms on Tiny Chat.

On Sunday (May 24), the “Say So” rapper posted a lengthy Instagram statement in response to numerous tweets exposing her alleged online activity, including saying “n**ger” in a predominately white video chat room and recording a song named after a racial slur.

“I’ve used public chat rooms to socialize since I was a child. I shouldn’t have been on some of those chat room sites, but I personally have never been involved in any racist conversations,” Doja explained in the statement. “I’m sorry to everyone that I offended.”

“I’m a black woman,” she added. “Half of my family is black from South Africa and I’m very prude of where I came from.”
