Adam Sandler causes global freak-out when he put a hand on actress’s knee. Here’s how this snowballed …

At a time when famous men are being scrutinized for anything that resembles sexual harassment of women you would think a celebrity like Adam Sandler would be smart enough to not grab a woman’s leg on television.

You would be incorrect.

Appearing on the U.K.’s “The Graham Norton Show” the actor kept placing his hand on actress Claire Foy‘s knee, to the chagrin of social media.

Apparently oblivious to how the touching looked, he also placed his hand on the knee of Emma Thompson, his costar in “The Meyerowitz Stories,” who was also a guest on the show.

The Internet was outraged and set to label Sandler as Hollywood’s newest sexual predator.

But Foy herself said she was fine with Sandler touching her knee.

“We don’t believe anything was intended by Adam’s gesture and it has caused no offence to Claire,” a spokesman for the actress said in a statement.

And many on social media were more outraged at the witchhunt against men.
