People go to gigs to enjoy the music; they don't go to gigs with the expectation of being violated by another concert-goer. But unfortunately, that's what happened to one woman who attended a recent Architects performance at the Lowlands Festival near Amsterdam.
During one of the songs, Architects lead singer Sam Carter noticed a woman crowd-surfing near the front. But following the woman's journey towards the stage, Sam noticed a man in the audience take complete advantage of her by groping her boob while she was in no position to prevent him from doing so, and he was outraged.
In a video which has been posted on Twitter, the lead singer can be seen stopping the gig to say: "I've been going over in my f*cking mind about whether I should say something or not about what I just saw in that last song. And, do you know what, I am going to say it."
Deciding to speak out against the sexual harassment he'd witnessed, Sam said: "I saw a girl, a woman, crowd-surfing over here. I'm not going to point out who but I saw you grab at her boob."
Labeling the behavior "disgusting," Carter told the crowd "there is no place for that" here. Becoming increasingly angry about what he'd seen, he continued, shouting: "It is not your f*cking body. It is not your f*cking body, and you do not f*cking grab at someone. Not at my f*cking show."
Here's hoping it'll stop him—and anyone else—from ever carrying out any kind of degrading behavior like that again.
