Drake in Hot Water For Being Touchy with a 17 Year Old

Footage of Dizzy’s 2010 concert went viral for all the wrong reasons.

Drake is in hot water for behaving inappropriately with a minor. An old video of a concert from back in 2010 shows the Canadian rapper getting touchy with a 17 year old.

After a renewal of Ye and Dizzy’s feud, Drake is now making headlines for bad behavior.

People were outraged when the video of the then 23 year old Drake surfaced. In the footage, Dizzy can be seen flirting with and caressing the 17 year old (a minor in the United States) fan.

In the video, the Started From the Bottom rapper asks the fan how old she is after he’s done flirting, to which the girl replied 17. The singer was surprised but brushed it off in a joke that he can’t go to jail yet.

“I get in trouble for sh*t like this…….I had fun. I don’t know whether I should feel guilty or not, but I had fun. I like the way you feel against my chest. I just want to thank you.”

When Drake thanked the girl he kissed her again to which the audience cheered. Those present in the moment didn’t object.

Social Media Reacts

But it seems that his past might have caught up with him, thanks to the #MeToo era. The singer/rapper is certainly losing fans now.

People are so put off by the behavior that they’re even comparing the HotLine Bling singer to R. Kelly, who was also involved in a similar incident.

Some argued that this kind of behavior with any fan, under-aged or not, is not cool.

As always, there were people that can make a joke out of anything.

James Franco also under fire

In the past actor/director James Franco faced a similar backlash for flirting with a 17 year old. The incident took place back in 2014.

Text messages between the then 35-year-old actor and then 17-year-old student Lucy Clode, were leaked. The Scottish tourist and Franco fan was in New York when the actor suggested the two meet up.

“You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them but you don’t know who you’re talking to, and, you know? So I used bad judgment. I learned my lesson.”

Franco later apologized for the incident and claimed that it was a moment of bad judgement. The minor Lucy Clode was not opposed to the behavior when asked.

“I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of, you know, how social media is tricky.”
