When he arrived at the venue and took his seat, he “spat” on the knee of his co-star Chris Pine, who was already seated next to him. Immediately after this, Chris Pine lowered his face and made a gesture as if checking his own knee.
As soon as the video was posted, the Internet was ablaze. Harry, who was cheered by the world as a member of the boy group One Direction and is still extremely popular even now that he is a solo artist, was scandalized by the video. I saw Harry’s video. I can’t believe he would do something like that to his co-star in a public place. I can’t stop talking about it. It’s disgusting.
The video was then spread with the hashtag “#SpitGate.
While many netizens verified whether he had really spit, videos taken from different angles began to be posted, as this series of scenes was captured on camera by many participants who were present at the film festival.

Ramin Setode, co-editor-in-chief of Variety magazine, recently posted a video of Harry coming in and Chris taking a seat behind him from a distance. If you look closely, you can see that when Harry spits, his face is not facing Chris’s knee, and even if he had spit, it would most likely have fallen to the floor.
In response to the online furor, Chris’s representative commented. He completely denied it, saying, “There is no fact that he was spit on,” and added, “This is ridiculous. It is a complete fabrication and clearly deceives people and makes them make judgments based only on speculation. It is nothing but an evil effect of the Internet,” he said angrily.
