The singer was at the front of the stage when one fan reached out and grabbed him...
Harry Styles fans are calling for better treatment of the singer, after he was groped during a gig on Saturday.
He was performing as part of the We Can Survive concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles at the time, when he thought he’d go and say hi to fans at the front of the stage.

Only some forgot that boundaries are actually a thing and, as seen in a video which later surfaced on Twitter, reached out to try and grab his crotch all while screaming in his face.
Clearly not impressed with the situation, Harry quickly removed himself and continued with his energetic performance, making sure to not let it put a dampener on things for those who were there.
Meanwhile fans have been quick to take to Twitter and express their shock at the whole thing, as they explain to their peers that just because this happened to a guy doesn’t mean it’s not sexual assault.
One user wrote: “If you grab someone’s dick without their consent, it’s sexual assault. just because harry’s a male doesn’t mean he doesn’t have the same right as women.
“You must be absolutely disgusting if you think him kneeling in front of you calls for that. i’m disgusted.”
Whlle another added: “Grabbing Harry by his crotch is sexual assault. It’s wrong. Never ever touch someone like that. He’s human. Treat him like one.”
The hashtag #RespectHarry is now being used to remind everyone that he’s ‘not a toy’ and is in fact a ‘human with feelings’, and we couldn’t agree more.
