Drake stops Sydney show to call out fan's inappropriate touching

Canadian rap star Drake threatened to "f**k up" a fan during a performance at an Australian nightclub after noticing an alleged sexual assault.

The 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker stopped his show at Marquee Sydney to call out the inappropriate touching, and threatened to jump into the crowd himself to fight the man responsible.

Footage captured by an audience member shows the dramatic moment unfolding.

"Yo, stop that shit. If you don't stop touching girls I'll come out there and f**k you up," he said to the unseen person, upon finishing hit song 'Know Yourself'.

Drake then paused and stared the man down before repeating his warning.

"If you don't stop putting your hands on girls I'm gonna come out there and f**k you up myself."

Video of the incident shows Drake continuing to shout at him, but what is said cannot be heard as his microphone doesn't capture it.

Chanting then breaks out from the audience, begging Drake to make good on his threat and start a fight with the man. After some time, a new song begins.

Drake is currently in Australia as part of his Boy Meets World Tour, which kicked off in New Zealand earlier this month.
