The Weeknd has weighed in on Donald Trump’s historic comments about groping women.

Late last year, a 2005 conversation of Trump’s surfaced, which saw him boast about groping a married woman. In it, he said: “I moved on her and I failed, I’ll admit it… I did try and fuck her. She was married… I am automatically attracted to beautiful women. I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss, I don’t even wait… and when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Responding to the controversial comments in an interview with GQ, R&B singer Abel Tesfaye has said: “I don’t know anybody that would do that.”

He added: “I know a lot of people in the industry, and I don’t know anybody [that would do that]. Like, a random girl that like you just spoke to? No. I mean… No.”

“How do you even grab a pussy? Like, is it even grabbable?”, Tesfaye continued, shaking his head. “America, man. They never fail you.”
