Don’t mess with Drake or his female fans.

The Canadian rapper was performing at a club in Sydney, Australia, when he abruptly stopped his show after seeing something he didn’t like. Drake was in the middle of a song when he told his people to stop the music after allegedly seeing a man grope women.

“If you don’t stop — if you don’t stop touching girls, I’ll come out there and f*** you up,” Drake declared in a video posted on Instagram.

The audience abruptly started cheering.

“If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m gonna come out there and f*** your ass up,” he continued. It’s unclear if the man got thrown out, but you can see Drake continue to say something off-mic before resuming his performance while the crowd went wild.

Twitter was also feeling Drake’s bold move.

The “Passionfruit” rapper’s comments come amid a tumultuous time in Hollywood as the topic of sexual harassment has been front and center in the wake of scandals surrounding Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., Brett Ratner, and others.
