Famous Rapper Drake jumped to the defence of his female fans after a man kept harassing women at a concert on his Australian tour.

The rapper, who was performing in Sydney, stopped mid-song and pointed to a man in the crowd who he had spotted harassing women, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Midway through his performance, Drake slammed the male fan and told him, "If you don't stop touching girls I'm gonna come out there and f*** you up!"

The crowd was then heard cheering Drake following the star's outburst.

The rapper was praised on social media for the way he handled the situation, with one user writing, "@Drake well done last night for sticking up for what's morally right... much respect your way."

"You all know! I love Drake but that guy should have been kicked out straight away. No threat, no strikes just zero tolerance."

The 'Hotline Bling' hit-maker's public denouncement of sexual harassment comes in the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations against some of the biggest names in the Hollywood, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Bill O'Reilly, Louis CK, Dustin Hoffman and James Toback.
