Harry Styles graced the stage of the "We Can Survive Concert" to participate in the cancer awareness benefit event on Saturday. During his set, the One Direction member performed "Kiwi," a song off his self-titled album. Although nothing was wrong with his performance, a video of his presentation has gone viral and has alarmed most of his fans.

In the clip, the singer-songwriter approached the crowd near the stage where some members of the audience seemingly took advantage and touched his chest and crotch areas. The video immediately spread like a wildfire and has caused outrage among concerned fans, forcing them to start an online rally to call out this kind of behavior towards the artist.

The internet trends #RespectHarry after an alleged assault onstage

Most of them labeled the act as sexual assault, while others emphasized respect towards celebrities. These sentiments have caused #RespectHarry to trend on Twitter amid call to respect the One Direction member.

Harry Styles has yet to make a comment after the alleged groping incident.

According to ET Online, in a previous interview, the singer-songwriter confessed he has no problem with having a young fanbase. He even defended his young supporters from music critics.

"Who's to say that young girls who like popular music - short for popular right? - have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy?" he said.

"That's not up to you to say. Music is something that's always changing."
