Drake Slammed For Kissing, Touching Teen Girl
Drake is under fire for kissing and wrapping his arms around a 17-year-old female fan during a concert eight years ago.
In a video Cosmopolitan called “all kinds of yuck,” the Canadian rapper is seen flirting with a young woman he brought up on stage.
While standing behind her, Drake kissed her neck and wrapped his arms around her. When he asked her age, she replied, “17.”
“I can’t go to jail yet, man,” Drake said. “Seventeen? Why do you look like that?! You thick! Look at all this.”
Drake then told the fan: “I had fun. I don’t know if I should feel guilty or not but I had fun. I liked the way your breasts feel against my chest. I just want to thank you.”
He proceeded to kiss the teen on both cheeks, her forehead and on the lips.
The cringe-worthy video was shot at a May 2010 show, when Drake was 24.
The age of consent in Drake’s native Canada is 16 but in Colorado – where the video was shot – the consent age is 17.
Drake has not yet publicly commented on the video, which has been on YouTube since 2010 but recently resurfaced on Twitter.
