As if the pub­lic weren’t an­gry enough al­ready af­ter Sur­viv­ing R. Kelly, the Life­time do­cuseries filled with dis­turb­ing al­le­ga­tions about the singer’s treat­ment of women, they have a new tar­get for their anger: Drake.

Over the week­end, an un­earthed con­cert video from May 2010 made the rounds on­line. It shows the Cana­dian rap­per invit­ing a young fan on­stage at his Den­ver show and slow-danc­ing with her. Af­ter a twirl, he pulls her back to­ward him and smells her hair.

“I told you I like your hair, right? What is that? Is that Herbal Essence?” he asks as the au­di­ence laughs and screams.

Next, he be­gins kiss­ing the back of her neck and puts one arm across her chest, and then the other.

Drake then snaps out of his reverie, grabs a mi­cro­phone off a nearby ta­ble and tells the crowd, “Y’all gonna have me get car­ried away again. I get in trou­ble for (ex­ple­tive) like this!”

He then turns back to the girl and asks, “How old are you?”

When she replies that she’s 17, he cracks, “I can’t go to jail yet, man! Why do you look like that?”

Drake’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Melissa Nathan, de­clined to com­ment on the video, but Twit­ter didn’t hold back.

Some users al­leged it’s not the first time that Drake has been ac­cused of be­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ate with un­der­age girls.

“It’s en­tirely dis­gust­ing that as a grown man, you find your­self grav­i­tat­ing to­wards a child,” wrote @mayahx­oxo1.
