“Crown” actress Claire Foy recoiled when comedian Adam Sandler put hos hand on her knee during an interview on “The Graham Norton Show” Saturday. He repeatedly touched her, even though it seemed obvious to viewers she was uncomfortable with his actions.

She patted her hand on top of his, which was seemingly an effort to show she was uncomfortable with it there. But that led Sandler to place his hand back on her knee.

Sandler’s rep told New York Post’s Page Six the comedian’s act toward Foy was a “friendly gesture.”

Viewers flocked to Twitter to discuss what happened. Some of their posts have been shared below:

The online conversation erupted after Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexually assaulting, raping and harassing women in the entertainment industry for nearly three decades. Weinstein denied having non-consensual sex with women.

Emma Thompson, who was sitting on stage with Foy and Sandler, slammed Weinstein as a predator.

“I think there are probably about a million missed opportunities to call this man out on his disgusting behavior,” Thompson said in a frank interview on BBC2’s Newsnight Oct. 13.

“I don’t think you can describe him as a sex addict, he’s a predator. That’s different. He’s at the top of, as it were the ladder of, a system of harassment and belittlement and bullying and interference. This has been part of our world, women’s world, since time immemorial.

“So what we need to start talking about is the crisis in masculinity, the crisis of extreme masculinity which is this sort of behavior.”

Cara Delevigne, who was also on the stage with them, said Weinstein tried to get her to gave a threesome with him in a hotel room, but she escaped.

“When I first started to work as an actress, I was working on a film and I received a call from Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media,” she wrote in an Instagram statement Oct. 11. “It was a very odd and uncomfortable call… I answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that if I was gay or decided to be with a women specifically in public, that I’d never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood.”

“When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately that I was safe,” Delevingne wrote. “He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction.”

She sang to distract him.

“I was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave,” she wrote. “He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips.”
