The video, which had gone viral, has garnered over 3.37 million views, 22,100 retweets and 52,800 likes, as of this writing. It has also been reported by People, TMZ and Ok!, among other international publications.

Drake kissed the girl’s shoulders and neck before standing behind her for an embrace. After a while, he separated from the girl and said, “I get in trouble for s**t like this.”

He then asked for the girl’s age. When the girl said she was 17 years old, the crowd went wild.

“I can’t go to jail yet, man!” Drake stated. The concert was held at Ogden Theater in Denver in May 2010, as per TMZ yesterday. The age of consent in Colorado, United States is 17.

“Seventeen? How do you look like that?” he added. “You thick. Look at all this.”

“I had fun, I don’t know if I should feel guilty or not, but I had fun,” he later remarked. “I like the way your breasts feel against my chest. I just want to thank you.”

Despite learning that the girl he had been previously flirting with was underage, Drake went to kiss the girl’s hand. He then kissed both of her cheeks and forehead before bestowing a kiss on the girl’s lips, much to the delight of the crowd.

Drake and his camp have yet to issue a statement on the matter, as of this writing.

Netizens found no humor on the viral video. They took to the comments section of the post to express their disgust.

Drake’s fans were quick to point out that the singer-rapper did nothing illegal, seeing as the girl in the video is within the age of consent.

Others, meanwhile, remained firm that Drake should not have kissed the 17-year-old.

Some pointed out that Drake ought to be jailed for what he did.

Meanwhile, another netizen, @CoxDemarious, commented on the reaction of the crowd during the show.

Drake was previously accused of grooming 14-year-old Bobby Millie Brown, after the “Stranger Things” star revealed that the singer-rapper gives her relationship advice. He also allegedly groomed Hailey Baldwin who is now happily married to Justin Bieber. Last year, he was also rumored to be in a relationship with 18-year-old model Bella Harris. JB
