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.

That Drake video was disturbing because:
1) she visibly looked young
2) he grabs her breast after kissing her on the neck
3) he made a joke about going to jail (going to jail yet he said) after he found out she was 17
4) he then kissed her 3 more times.
But get y’all shit off.

PATTERN: @Drake brings a girl on stage, begins kissing her and wraps around her breasts.
He then asks her how old she is. “17,” she replies. Panics.
After mocking age of consent laws, he works to seduce her and begins kissing her again.
Many allegations. Is this your daughter? pic.twitter.com/3QUGp3UDv2

It looks like Drake only feels her up before he finds out her age, but otherwise it’s a creepy video. Hard to hear how old she is (13?), but Drake responds “I don’t want to go to jail yet” and then says “I like the way your breasts feel on my chest” before kissing her on the lips https://t.co/fcE4hl5fXt

Drake is a whole entire piece of shit for this
After she reveals she is underage…
“Why you look like that?”
“Awwww man I can’t go to jail!”
“I don’t know if I should feel guilty but I had a good time”
And talks about how good her breasts felt

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