Rapper Drake is catching flak after a video in which he kisses and fondles a young fan on stage, learns her age, and kisses her again before sending her back into the crowd.
In the clip, Drake dances with the young fan, smells her hair, then kisses and caresses her while the crowd cheers wildly. He then breaks away and asks the fan how old she is.
“Seventeen,” she answers, to riotous cheers and jeers from the audience.
Drake steps back to look her up and down while asking, “Why do you look like that?”
“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,” he says, creepily, before kissing her a few more times and sending her off stage.
The video, from an undated show, has drawn enormous backlash on Twitter, fueled by millions of viewers who tuned in to watch the Surviving R. Kelly documentary series that aired last week.
Singer Kelly preyed on young teen girls for years, filming a s-x tape with a 14-year-old and marrying 15-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah.
Drake’s behavior in the video while considerably less extreme than R. Kelly’s, still grossed people out – possibly due in part to the fact that it’s not the first time he’s gotten close to “jailbait.”
