As the singer’s world solo tour continues, Styles was performing at the ‘We Can Survive’ concert in Las Vegas when the incident took place. During a performance of his track ‘Kiwi’, Styles can be seen walking up to the edge of the stage and urging fans to scream. As he fell to his knees in celebration, an eager fan can clearly be seen attempting to grab his crotch before he brushes them away and jumps away to return to centre-stage.
As the footage when viral and ‘#RespectHarr’y started trending, fans took to Twitter to speak out against sexual assault in all of its forms, and what they saw as ‘disgusting and disrespectful’.
I don't even think the girl realizes that because of her actions, he may never get that close to his fans on stage again. #RespectHarry
