Drake stopped a show of his to make clear how he feels about sexual harassment and assault, admonishing a fan of his for using his concert as a way to feel up women.

“If you don’t stop touching girls I’m going to come out there and f*** you up,” Drake can be seen saying in a video after stopping, mid-song. “You need to stop putting your hands on girls or I’m gonna come out their and f***” you up.

The video was captured by a fan standing stage left, who was fairly close to the rapper as he threatened his creepy fan.

The crowd went wild each time he threatened to get down on the floor and intervene physically. It’s not clear what the fan did, if anything, after the public shaming stopped and Drake jumped back into the beat.

The video has surfaced online and spread after more than a month in which sexual assault and harassment stories have been a regular occurrence in headlines. That movement, sparked by numerous allegations against former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, has spread across the entertainment industry, and into the media and political worlds.

Women in that time have felt some degree of empowerment, and began relaying their stories of sexual harassment or abuse online, in an incredible online movement known as the “#MeToo” campaign.

Several prominent careers have been reduced to damaged following the allegations, including those of comedian Louis CK, actor Kevin Spacey, and reporting giant Mark Halperin.
