Harry Styles was inappropriately touched while he was performing at Hollywood Bowl’s charity event. The 23-year-old singer got groped when he got close to the audience members rooting for him at the ‘We Can Survive’ show, an all-star benefit concert for breast cancer awareness.
Several videos are doing the rounds of social media wherein one can see Styles engrossed in his performance when a hand charges right at “The Sign of The Times” hitmaker’s nether region. The video footage was captured on camera by the audience. It clearly shows the singer disturbed by the grope and quickly swatting the person’s hand.
Fans took to social media to condemn the phantom groper. The hashtag #RespectHarry trended on Twitter after the encounter. “This is flat out disgusting and vile. I am sick and tired of his so called ‘fans’ treating him like this, he deserves better #RespectHarry,” wrote one fan.
When he kneels in the front you should understand that he's doing it to get close to you. NOT TO BE TOUCHED INAPPROPRIATELY #RespectHarry— H.🌹 (@bringmetoniall_) October 22, 2017
