Millie Bobby Brown and now Billie Eilish are two underage girls who say Drake (a whole 32-years-old) texts them. This is troublesome. Something we should maybe sit up/pay attention to. Like...now. As opposed to later when we usually do, lamenting "we should have paid attention"

I鈥檓 the same age as Drake. I don鈥檛 even have a desire to text teenagers I鈥檓 related to. He鈥檚 such a fucking creep and he鈥檚 practically daring us to give a shit with the behavior he鈥檚 letting us see out in the open. twitter.com/danblackroyd/s鈥

And by the way...a 32-year-old man who we know is texting two teenage girls is never *only* texting two teenage girls. If you get my drift... twitter.com/danblackroyd/s鈥
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
He groped and hit on a teenage girl on stage for the whole world to see... 鈥淗ow was he supposed to know she was a minor?!鈥 鈥 Don鈥檛 touch girls if you don鈥檛 know how old they are. Don鈥檛 touch anyone like that you don鈥檛 know.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I meant 鈥渨orrisome鈥 not troublesome. I was today years old when I found out that troublesome doesn鈥檛 mean what I thought it meant all these years. It鈥檚 definitely not a strong enough word in this context twitter.com/danblackroyd/s鈥
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
It鈥檚 not just them. 鈥淲aiting鈥 until someone is 18 is abhorrent and he for sure did that with Kylie Jenner. twitter.com/brokenbottlebo鈥
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
He's 33 now and he allegedly gives them relationship advice. I'm not saying he's grooming young kids but hey, the writing is on the wall at this point.
 
Not defending anyone but offering this perspective: as someone who was significantly older than the people on youtube I hung out with, it was because we became close friends who understood the uniqueness in the other鈥檚 life/job. I never once thought about them inappropriately.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
People are gonna keep writing it off as innocent and sweet and get angry at people who say it isn鈥檛, until something happens and then wonder why nobody saw it coming
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
This has potential of being an R Kelly situation. He needs to be investigated. He's careless in doing with famous teenage girls.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I don鈥檛 directly text my kids friends- I鈥檒l text their mom or have my daughter text if I need information from them. Adults texting other people鈥檚 kids is creepy.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
okay so to everyone saying he鈥檚 not grooming them, imagine this: you have a daughter/little sister that鈥檚 like 15 and a 33 year old is texting her and giving her relationship advice. doesn鈥檛 that seem kinda odd? especially if that 33 year old had groped a minor before?
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I really don't think it is THAT serious. Are we assuming he is being inappropriate? As celebrities, actors, and musicians, they have to build their network. Everything in the business is about who you know and who your friends are. Don't think we should be jumping to conclusions. pic.twitter.com/XN3IGzxsNN
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Im around the same ages as billie and millie and i would be freaked out if someone 18+ dms me knowing my age. A whole man in his 30s....
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
does anyone remember in the early aughts this was a common thing and barely questioned?: Hillary Duff, Lohan, Hayden Panettiere all dated grown ass men as teenagers (Joel Madden, Wilmer valderrama who did the same thing with Demi, milo ventimiglia) etc.

I'm doing my part and making as many "Drake is definitely a predator" jokes as I can. And I live on Toronto. I'll take one hero medal plz
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Just because he was in a wheelchair for his formative years doesn鈥檛 mean he gets a pass
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
That part where Billie was saying something about how he鈥檚 ~so~ nice to her stood out even more. Huge red flag
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I iust saw a headline somewhere about how "Drake has always had a thing for Kylie Jenner, and it's mutual," or something like that. She'ss 22. Like, for how long has he had a thing for her? 馃槄馃槄馃槄
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I'm also kind of sketched out by 26yo Pete Davidson dating Cindy Crawford's 18yo daughter. 馃槵
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
鈥淚鈥檓 mentoring them鈥 is the exact excuse that 95% of dudes gave to Chris Hansen on To Catch a Predator before he read them back the transcripts. Just sayin.
 
The year is 2045... Its been 15 years since Drake had a hit. Lifetime is airing the 6 part documentary 鈥淪urviving Aubrey鈥. Twitter is furious n demanding that Drake be cancelled
 
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
also hes been linked w hailey baldwin and kylie, both girls hes known since they were young teenagers. and remember when we found out he dated an 18 y old and people dug thru her socials and found out she was a minor when in a relationship w drake?? Weird
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I heard Drake started texting Baby Yoda too.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
These are just the public white girls. There鈥檚 been underage black girls saying the same stuff for years but have been ignored.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
He also groped a minor at a concert
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Drake Jaded Lyrics Include: Ayy, told me about all your insecurities, for what? Dragged me like two hours to your family's house, for what? Pretty little young thing (young thing) We coulda waited, I wasn't rushin', differences in ages You're old enough, but you're still a baby

No one will be enraged until they see the Netflix documentary
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I started college at 17. My friends were mostly 16, a couple 15. People thought it was weird that a college student was hanging with kids. They were kinda right. The fact that people can even think a 30 year old has somethibt to talk about with a 15 year old is wow
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
And to the people who are like "that's just how celebrities network" - there are monthly stories from former child stars that point out how fucked up and taken advantage of they were as teens. Not everyone in the biz has parents like Zendaya's who aren't just fame hungry.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
That鈥檚 a dude who spend a lot of time grooming.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
When I heard her (Billie) kind of blushingly mention him several times in her recent interview and that they text, I found it worrisome.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
How many teenage boys is he texting? Yeah...
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I'm 29 and a 24 year old tried to message me on a dating site and I almost asked if he was lost. I could not FATHOM texting an actual child. Because, we use the word underage....they're children. Whole. Ass. Children.
 
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Can we also talk about how older celebrities invite influencers that are minors to grown adults parties (ex- Loren gray, Shes always see at parties hosted by grown adults like Paris Hilton.) like they鈥檙e literally putting these children in potential danger
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
We can't let this be the next R Kelly situation
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
He also pulled a 17-yr-old on stage at a concert, proceeded to flirt with her, then announced to the audience how he wished he could kiss her but didn鈥檛 want to get in trouble. Even, if this was allegedly in a joking manner it is gross and a red flag!
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
If you鈥檙e texting someone who is just about to experience their second decade change while you鈥檙e almost on your fourth & they鈥檙e not family/work associates to/with you then there is something wrong. I feel a disconnect talking to anyone born after 鈥97 (96) & I was born in 鈥95.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Drake's been dating barely-legal girls for years and has been caught on video kissing/groping a fan he knew was underage. This man is a predator and no one wants to do anything bc mediocre music is apparently more valuable than the wellbeing of womxn/girls.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Also just because he鈥檚 not preying on THEM doesn鈥檛 mean he鈥檚 not preying on less well-known, connected girls. People are so caught up on acknowledging THEY aren鈥檛 uncomfortable but this is about the pattern of behavior.
 
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
patiently waiting for the next journalist who interviews him to question him about this... "why do you do this?" "do you not see how inappropriate this is?"
 
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Since that stuff came out in Vogue about MBB and Drake texting they sure have been styling her much older looking for awards shows etc. it鈥檚 sad.
 
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
When I was a supervisor at a grocery store, I didn't even text my cashiers who were in college let alone the ones in high school, even the ones I treated like sisters. Most of my advice was "talk to your parents" unless it was work or college related.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I watched that yearly interview w eilish and she said something like "hes the nicest person ever!" :/ no honey he's just grooming you
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I feel like it comes up quarterly, his stans lose their shit defending him, and then that鈥檚 it. Nothing else happens till another teenager says 鈥渨e鈥檝e been texting for years!鈥
 
Agreed ... both girls are someone鈥檚 daughter .

Drake鈥檚 a poor mans Ja Rule anyway. Never liked him
 
Maybe because the average 16 -17 year old doesn鈥檛 have 20-40 million Instagram followers, fame at their level , or a massive music career for them to relate to?? Age is a fucking number, they literally sat there and said how sweet he was, not that he was creepy...
 
Am sorry pero basada en su interacci贸n con Rhianna parece exactamente el tipo de g眉ey que dice que las morras de su edad no lo 鈥渃omprenden鈥 cuando en realidad es un pendejo y se va con ni帽as a las que puede 鈥渋mpresionar鈥 f谩cilmente. Creeeeep.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Toronto loves this dude way too much and it would take a lot for folks to abandon their king. Unfortunately. Fame and wealth enable bad behaviour so much. 馃槨
 
 
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
he groped an underage girl ON STAGE. i just... if i was Millie鈥檚 mother that would be unacceptable and restraining orders would be had.
 
 
(pusha t voice) you are texting a child
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
When the little girls were black only got half this attention. He groped that 17 y/o on stage even after knowing her age. He was dealing with an 18 y/o he 'met' at 16. I have questions. twitter.com/socializm_/sta鈥
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
The problem is that we want to give predators the benefit of the doubt even as they are exhbiting predatory behaviour. And then you only wanna react when the predatory behaviour is "explicit" enough or when someone gets raped. And even then you'll want "evidence".
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Drake is just Canadian R. Kelly which is still creepy in my book
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
This is not mentoring; it鈥檚 grooming. Time will prove me correct in my assumption. Been there; done that.
 
 
I鈥檝e literally been warning people about Drake ever since he was grooming that other 15-year-old girl like 6 years ago. I鈥檓 glad people are finally starting to pay attention to this!!
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Curious number of single-digit-follower bot accounts pushing back in this thread. Sorry Drake but it's definitely creepy and weird.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
drake didnt only text millie he invited her to his room and took her out for dinner before too
 
Let鈥檚 put Drake in jail, I agree
 
I鈥檓 younger than drake, I work with kids, and if I were casually texting teens I would probably get fired from my job. It鈥檚 textbook grooming, it鈥檚 in all the trainings, it should be obviously gross to you regardless.
 
 
Real talk, Drake is my age. He should be worried about his lawn, watching his cholesterol and risk bucketing his investments across asset classes.
 
when i was 15 or something. a guy who was 19 was hitting on me and saying things like 芦6 months left until you can have sex禄 and THAT made me feel uncomfortable. i didn鈥檛 realize it back then; but now that i think about it, i feel gross... this is NOT okay, he鈥檚 32!!!
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I'm afraid this is a pattern of his, which makes me think we only hear about the few famous celebrities he talks to. He isn't even hiding his fascination with these famous young girls. What about the girls who show up at his concert?We wouldn't hear anything until its too late.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I鈥檓 a 32 year old woman and I would feel VERY weird about texting and meeting up with a 14 year old girl. I would fully expect her patents to be concerned. The fact that is happening in front of the entire world and it鈥檚 not being stopped is disgusting.
 
Said it before I'll say it again. Drake is this generations R Kelly.
 
Ur right but what are we meant to do? I already call him a pedophile on Twitter idk what other impact I could possibly have
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
A GROWN big big man is doing up friendship with underage girls
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
What exactly is wrong with texting them tho as long as it's not anything creepy? He's probably like, yo let me be a big bro to them since he knows what it's like to grow up as a child star and what happens when you don't have anyone to have your back.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
I'm 25 and I'm uncomfortable talking one-on-one with anyone under 21, let alone a 14 y/o wtf
 
馃檮 people angry tweeting at me about this...just say 鈥淚 like drake and this made me mad.鈥 But like...to a therapist. Not to me.
 
 
We been saying Drake is a creep for the last couple of years now, but since it was mostly Black women saying it....
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
Why can鈥檛 we have these kinds of convos about little black n brown girls who get crept on all the time?
 
This is the same man who groped a teenager on stage, the same man who publicly embarrassed Rihanna asked her out and then hung out with the man who abused her, and also the same man who was friend with someone charged with human trafficking but we鈥檙e quick to forget lol
 
Drake be talking more with other kids than his own馃槶馃槶
 
Any man in his 30s who is texting young teens is straight up a creep.
 
Drake been exposed for this predator shit awhile ago but people do not care bc it's Drake
 
Another R. Kelly in the making. Let's nip this one in the bud please.

Or are yall going to put music over lives again?? 馃檮
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
To anyone that writes it off as "sweet or nice" yeah no shit, creeps don't just go in acting creepy from the jump. Obviously, predators act nice AT FIRST.
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
And they aren鈥檛 the first. He had been texting his ex when she was 16 and groped a 17 year old on stage and continued to do so after he learned she was underage. Dude is a full blown creeper and grooming young women
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
i don鈥檛 want to be rude.. but what are we, regular folks, gonna do?
 
i hope y'all leave trying to force the narrative that drake is a paedo in 2019
 
grooming //

also take a look at his barely legal ex gfs who he鈥檚 known since they were kids (yes teens are kids) this is clearly a pattern
 
In reply to @danblackroyd
And y鈥檃ll made him artist of the decade smh
 
I had lily by a 39 year old when I was 19. I鈥檓 glad girls are becoming more aware of borderline predators. I love my daughter but the situation I was in is becoming really gross to think about
 
Lol just as I said I found it weird that the guy who texts underage girls also is the producer of a show about underage girls & sex!
(Please don鈥檛 say euphoria ain鈥檛 about sex)
 
As a grown man, there is not one thing you need to be talking to teenagers about. Idc if you鈥檙e ~industry or not. Text their parents!
 
Yo antis and defenders of minors where u at (but you won鈥檛 troll and harass this man, won鈥檛 you)
