Woman groped at festival, band stops show to slam attacker

Singer praised for halting gig to blast groper

"I've been going over in my fucking mind whether I should say something about what I saw in that last song", Sam Carter (pictured, center) of the Architects said as he signaled for the band to stop playing music. "T$3 hank you for saying something, it makes me so happy to see that people are talking about this issue instead of ignoring it", one person tweeted to the singer.

Sam Carter from Architects, a British metal band, knew this when he literally stopped his show at the Lowlands Festival in Biddinghuizen, the Netherlands, on Friday night to address a sexual assault he witnessed in the crowd. "I'm not going to point out who but I saw you grab at her boob", Carter told the crowd. It is not your fucking body, and you do not fucking grab at someone.

He added: "If you feel like doing that again, walk out there and fuck off and don't come back".

"There is no f*cking place for this sh*t", Carter said to the crowd. "Let's keep this going, let's keep this a safe place for fucking everybody, and let's have a fucking good time".

Carter's powerful message moved the audience and the Internet.

Foot Locker, Inc. (FL) Downgraded by UBS AG
Following the sale, the director now owns 8,964 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $532,461.60. Finally, Pacer Advisors Inc. increased its stake in shares of Foot Locker by 3.5% in the first quarter.

"It's fucking disgusting. There is no fucking place for that shit".

The campaign group, Girls Against, was also formed by women who claimed they'd been victims of groping at gigs and festivals.

Clips of Carter's speech were shared on social media and drew widespread praise.
