A video of Drake with a 17-year-old fan was posted on Twitter again, and raised some eyebrows.
The video is from a show at Colorado’s Ogden Theatre in May 2010. Drake is seen on stage with a fan. He smells her hair and appears to kiss her neck and then asks her age. She she responds with “17” the crowd goes wiled and Drake says, “I can't go to jail yet, man! Seventeen? How do you look like that? You thick. Look at all this. Well, seventeen. I don't know if I should feel guilty or not but I had fun. I liked the way your breasts feel against my chest." He then kisses her hand, cheeks, forehead, lips.
Here's the thing: Drake was 23 when the video was taken and the age of consent in Colorado is 17.
But many people are seeing the timing as thorny, because it was posted after millions of people watched Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly,” which focuses on Kelly’s decades of preying on young girls.
