Drake Takes a Stand: Drake attacked a fan who tossed a vaping device during a concert at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York.
The video was shared on TikTok by the venue with the message, “Reminder: you cannot bring vape inside Barclays Centre.” The video was eventually posted to the venue’s Instagram account.
Drake is seen in the footage asking the crowd, saying, “Hey, who threw this? “Who threw the vaporizer?”
“There’s no way you’re taking life seriously if you think I’m gonna pick this vape up and vape with you at the f—–g Barclays Center,” he said. The singer then used his foot to kick the vape on the ground and addressed the owner saying, “You got some real-life evaluating to do,” as the audience erupted in laughter. He continued, ”throwing this f—ing lemon mint vape up here, thinking I’m about to vape with you at the Barclays.”
Reacting to the clip, one user said, ”The issue is that they threw it at him. People literally have no respect anymore. Also, people can’t wait to vape later. I don’t understand why people just can’t follow simple rules and then throw objects at the performers. At least he didn’t walk off stage and cancel the show.”
Another commented, ”They have no self-control, I see ppl vaping next to old ppl and new horns on the train, I’m the movie theater on the bus, anywhere really… they don’t have enough common sense, respect, or self-control to know when to chill.”
The incident involving the Hotline Bling rapper is the latest in a string of throwing events at concerts. A phone was thrown at Bebe Rexha’s face, injuring her. A UK admirer threw her dead mother’s ashes at Pink on stage in an unusual moment. Someone flung a sex item flying at Lil Nas X, and Harry Styles was also injured near the eye by a mystery object during her performance.
Two weeks later, during a concert in Montreal, the singer revealed that he doesn’t mind if some objects are thrown at him as long as they are underpants.
“I would just like to say before I go onto this next song, this is the first stage where I don’t have no bras, and I’m deeply disappointed,” he joked.
