Fans of Harry Styles vented their outrage after one concertgoer appeared to grope the singer during a concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night. The controversy generated a #RespectHarry hashtag on Twitter.


Video shows Styles approaching the crowd as he performs his song "Kiwi" at the We Can Survive breast cancer benefit. A fan reaches out amid a sea of hands to seemingly grab his crotch. The singer can be seen swiping the hand away and retreating to the stage.

Here's another angle:

Many Twitter users commented that the overzealous audience member had committed sexual assault. "I can't believe people have to be constantly reminded that we don't own celebrities," wrote one.


The incident happened while the industry is in an atmosphere of heightened awareness as numerous sexual misconduct claims have been leveled against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and now director James Toback.


Reps for Styles didn't immediately respond to HuffPost's requests for comment, but Twitter had plenty to say:

Styles was performing during the We Can Survive benefit concert when the incident appeared to happen.
