Nick Jonas was groped by a fan at a Jonas Brothers concert, and this is not okay
If we had the chance to get up close and personal with a Jonas Brother, it would be hard to restrain ourselves from wanting to give them a hug and tell them how much we adore them. But we’d absolutely restrain ourselves because touching someone without their consent is not okay, ever. It looks like one fan who attended the Happiness Begins Tour didn’t get that memo. Now other fans are calling this person out for groping Nick Jonas while he was performing.
Last week, the Jonas Brothers took their tour to The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 20th and 21st. It was during one of these shows that a spectator captured the groping on camera.
The JoBros were standing on a catwalk among the audience while performing their hit song “Only Human.” The video shows one fan standing behind Nick and inappropriately groping his upper leg while he sang. A security guard tried to bat the fan’s hand away—as did Nick Jonas—but because she was positioned on the other side of the catwalk, she continued to grope.
Others on Twitter are calling this person out for being disrespectful, and we couldn’t agree more.
Nick has yet to comment on the situation, but his fans are coming to his defense in his stead.
Some have even taken it upon themselves to issue an apology on behalf of the groper.
It’s easy to forget that the celebrities we idolize are people with feelings just like us. If you wouldn’t like to be groped while performing in front of thousands of people, then Nick Jonas probably wouldn’t like it either. Consent is always key—no ifs, ands, or buts.
