Drake is catching flak after a years-old video resurfaced, in which he kisses and fondles a young fan on stage, learns her age, and kisses her again before sending her back into the crowd.
In the clip, Drake dances with the young fan, smells her hair, then kisses and caresses her while the crowd cheers wildly. He then breaks away and asks the fan how old she is.
“Seventeen,” she answers, to riotous cheers and jeers from the audience. Drake steps back to look her up and down while asking, “Why do you look like that?”

Drake’s behavior, while considerably less extreme than R. Kelly’s, still grossed people out – possibly due in part to the fact that it’s not the first time he’s gotten close to “jailbait.”
Bella B. Harris is 16 in these pictures. In the first one where he’s making the creepy face, she’s like one month into being 16. No one who reported the dating rumors (that i saw) or the rebuttal to the dating rumors addressed this. pic.twitter.com/ewk05dJuCt

The video has been retweeted over [24,000 times], and people are pronouncing Drake “cancelled,” though R. Kelly certainly recovered from worse scandals.
