Drake slammed on social media for 2010 video
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.
Drake also received some backlash in September 2018 Drake is getting slammed on Twitter for a 2010 concert video that shows him slow-dancing with and kissing a 17-year-old girl. when Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown revealed the two had a close friendship.
