Crowd surfing during concerts make fans particularly vulnerable to these types of sexual assaults. Rapper Iggy Azalea pointed this out in 2014, when she said she stopped crowd surfing at her own shows for fear of men attempting to “finger” her.
Carter said at Friday’s concert that he initially wasn’t sure about whether he should say anything. But he decided to speak out, and the crowd cheered for his passionate defense of the unidentified woman.
He finished his speech by inviting anyone who wanted to continue to assault fans to leave the show.
After the clip was posted to social media, both fans and people who hadn’t even heard of the metal band shared words of gratitude to Carter.
Carter reinforced his stance by tweeting the video on his personal account. “There’s no room for this at any kind of show,” he said.
