Drew Barrymore had a very frightening encounter. The talk show host was hosting a conversation with Reneé Rapp during an event at The 92nd Street Y on Monday night (Aug. 21, 2023) when a man suddenly rushed the stage.
As seen in footage posted to social media, an audience member called out Drew‘s name in the middle of their conversation, causing her to suddenly stop speaking and say: “Oh my god, yes, hi!”
Then, as Drew and Reneé started speaking again, an attendee approached the stage and seemingly said his full name to Drew.
“You know who I am,” he said, as Reneé stood up to escort Drew safely away and security stepped in to block the man from getting any closer.
“I need to see you at some point while you’re in New York,” the man added.
While the two did step offstage, they later returned to finish their conversation.
The 92Y event was to discuss Reneé‘s debut album Snow Angel, which was just released last Friday (August 18).
“Both handled it like bosses,” journalist McKenzie Morrell wrote, “and recovered quickly to continue an awesome conversation.”
