Another day, another musician having something thrown at them while performing.
The latest victim – Drake.
At a recent show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the Canadian rapper paused to call out a fan who threw a vape at him mid-set.
“Did you throw a vape up here? Come on,” Drake told the crowd Thursday night. “Hey… who threw that? Who threw the vape?”
Video of the interaction was shared on the New York venue’s website Instagram Account with the caption “Reminder: You can’t vape at the Barclays Center.”
He then questioned the e-cigarette launcher’s concert etiquette and personal life choices.
“You’re not taking life seriously if you think I’m going to grab this vape and vape with you at the Barclays Center,” the “Passionfruit” artist said while spinning the vape. “You gotta evaluate real life by throwing up that friggin’ lemon mint vape and thinking I’m about to vape at Barclays with you.”
Earlier this month, Drake was in the midst of a rendition of Ginuwine’s “So Anxious” when a cellphone flew out of the crowd at Chicago’s United Center, hitting his wrist. The “God’s Plan” singer continued to perform unharmed, though not confused as to why someone would throw an object at him mid-show.
Drake’s two experiences are just the latest in a string of incidents that have seen fans throw objects ranging from phones to jewelry to cremated ashes at artists including Bebe Rexha, Kelsea Ballerini and Harry Styles. Meanwhile, Morgan Wallen used a flying black brassiere at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood on Saturday – no harm, no foul.
