Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra hit the headlines for all the famous or infamous reasons. This time around, Nick was on the receiving end as he was inappropriately touched by a fan and what was even more shocking was that the entire video of the incident has been shared online. The incident reportedly happened at the Los Angeles leg of the Jonas Brothers’ ongoing Happiness Begins tour.
According to the video, the brothers can be seen performing on a narrow stage together, as one fan, all of a sudden, runs her hands up Priyanka Jonas’ husband legs from behind.
Soon after this, a member of the security staff can be seen reaching across the narrow platform and physically getting the female fan to stop touching Nick. But despite all his attempts, the fan still continues to run her hands all over Nick. At one point, the singer himself turned around and hit the fan’s hands away.
Many people have condemned the behaviour online, stating it as ‘sexual assault’. “That IS sexual assault. She went and touched him without his consent in a place that’s not hers to touch and it makes me so f*cking sick,” one person wrote on Twitter.
“This person is literally assaulting Nick right on stage. This is so disgusting!!! They should’ve thrown her out and banned her from future events,” wrote another. “It’s sad just because people pay tickets for shows, they feel entitled to touch em etc. Yet forgetting that’s assault if you wanna be specific,” another person wrote.
Nick, who is married to actor Priyanka Chopra, hasn’t yet reacted or spoke about the most recent incident.
Earlier this year, Priyanka Chopra commented on the #MeToo movement at an event. She went on to explain how sexual harassment has become a usual thing with women across the world.
“Sexual harassment had become a norm with women. Now because of the support we are giving each other, people don’t have the power to shut us down. And that’s an incredibly powerful thing to see. Now if I have a story I don’t feel I am alone anymore – and I am not ashamed of it.”
