British heartthrob Harry Styles became a victim of sexual assault when he was groped by a fan during his performance for the We Can Survive concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night.

The shocking incident was recorded by other fans who attended the show.

"Near the end of performing Kiwi, like usual, Harry went to the very front of the stage to get the crowd extra excited," a fan who saw it happen, told Yahoo! "He got down onto his knees and was shaking his arms to the music with his eyes closed. A fan then reached out and touched his crotch. He very quickly got up and appeared to also shove their hand a little bit to remove them faster."

"You can tell it freaked him out a little because as he continued performing, he avoided the section that fan was standing in," the eyewitness added.

After the incident went viral on Twitter, his fans started the hashtag #RespectHarry to stand up for him. "PSA: if you ever get the opportunity [to] see [an] artist in front row, do not think it's okay to sexually assault [them]," someone pointed out.
