But Tuesday night (November 15), Drake showed that behind the celebrity facade is a guy unafraid to fight for those in need. Drake stopped a performance of "Know Yourself" at a Sydney, Australia nightclub to call out a man who couldn't keep his hands to himself.
I got this close to Drake threatening to jump into the crowd to start a fight with a guy groping a woman in the audience.

In a fan-captured Instagram video, Drake can be heard yelling at the man, "If you don't stop touching girls, I'm gonna come out there and fuck you up." The conversation surrounding sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood continues, as courageous victims and survivors come forward to tell their stories. In recent weeks, powerful men like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Louis C.K. have been accused of using their influence and stature to take advantage of others.
While Drake's singular act at a nightclub won't solve everything, it is a step in the right direction. If an artist as big as Graham can stop a show to take on the responsibility of calling out a man violating a woman in his presence, others can start and continue being just as vigilant.- Charles Holmes
