Drew Barrymore and singer/actor Reneé Rapp abruptly left a New York City stage Monday after a man approached while yelling, “You know who I am,” according to video circulating on social media. 

Barrymore, a talk show host and actor, was leading a conversation with Rapp, the star of "The Sex Lives of College Girls," about her latest album before they hurried off the stage.

The video shows them onstage at 92nd Street Y, a cultural center in Manhattan, when Barrymore was interrupted by someone abruptly yelling, “Drew Barrymore!”

Barrymore appeared to be caught off-guard and said into the mic, “Oh, my God! Yes! Hi!”

The duo apprehensively watched the man as he approached the stage while shouting his name, adding, “You know who I am.”

“I need to see you at some point while you’re in New York, OK?” he said, walking along the edge of the stage.

Rapp immediately appeared startled and got up from her seat, grabbing Barrymore and quickly leading her offstage.

Two men who appeared to be security officers approached the man, seemingly to escort him away. 

Representatives for Barrymore and Rapp did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Neither did 92NY. 

New York police said no incident reports were filed.
