Overzealous Harry Styles Fan Grabs His Crotch On-Stage, Twitter Reacts (VIDEO)
Note to self: Do not grope Harry Styles.
Video has surfaced of the former One Direction singer minding his business and performing on stage, until an overeager fan in the front row literally reaches for and grabs his crotch.
And Harry's fans are up in arms, deeming the incident sexual assault.
Harry, who just wrapped up his North American solo tour, was performing at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 21.
The We Can Survive concert was a benefit for breast cancer awareness.
While belting out his hit, "Kiwi," he moved closer to the audience to high-five some fans before one female audience member in particular reached out her hand and grabbed his privates instead.
The video from the incident, posted to Twitter by a fellow concert-goer, shows the 23-year-old pushing her hand away before stepping towards the back of the stage.

He then returns to a different part of the front of the stage a few seconds later, with his hand conveniently covering his private parts.
Once Harry stans got wind of the video online they were pretty pissed, deeming the incident sexual assault and even starting a Twitter trending topic, #RespectHarry!
I am absolutely disgusted by what happened. I hope people know that REAL fans would never doing anything like that. #RespectHarry— adrienne (@egginmycrocs_) October 22, 2017

#RespectHarry The fact that Harry; one of the kindest and most genuine people on this earth is getting disrespected at his OWN concerts..— amina (@SociallyHowell) October 22, 2017
PSA: if you ever get the opportunity of see a artist in front row, do not think its okay to sexual assault then. #RespectHarry— valeria (@harrylava21) October 22, 2017
The British star has yet to comment on the incident, but it seems like one little episode of misconduct won't slow him down.
His tour is just getting started, in fact, as he'll be playing dozens of shows worldwide from March until July 2018!
Meanwhile, the former One Directioner's bandmates are killing it with their solo careers, too.
Niall Horan, for one, just released his debut solo LP, Flicker, on October 20 and it's been getting primarily positive reviews.
Let's hope the remainder of the singer's tour goes smoothly — keep your hands to yourselves, ladies!
