On Thursday night, millions tuned in to watch Surviving R. Kelly, Lifetime’s eye-opening docuseries exploring R&B singer R. Kelly’s decades of preying on young girls.
The day after Surviving R. Kelly aired, a disturbing video surfaced on Twitter featuring the rapper Drake.
“I can’t go to jail yet, man!” shouts Drake, to amused cheers from the crowd.
“I don’t know whether I should feel guilty or not, but I had fun. I like the way your breasts feel against my chest. I just want to thank you.” Drake then kisses her face several times again before bidding her adieu.

Writer and academic Eve Ewing wrote, “Honestly this isn’t just about Drake. people are not asking questions that should be asked. And it’s real easy to watch #SurvivingRKelly and say ‘why didn’t anyone xyz’ but there’s a lot of folks hooting & hollering in this video.” This is not the first time Drake has received backlash for his behavior toward young women.
In September of last year, reports emerged suggesting that Drake was in a romantic relationship with 18-year-old model Bella Harris, whom he’d known since she was 16.
Folks then took issue with Drake’s texting relationship “About boys” with 14-year-old Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, with some deeming it inappropriate.
