Crowd surfing during concerts is very common nowadays but it also makes fans especially the female fans vulnerable to sexual assaults. A similar incident took place in 2014 when rapper Iggy Azalea stopped crowd surfing in her show for fear of men assaulting her.
Carter at the Friday concert received cheers from the crows for his passionate defence of the unidentified woman. He even finished his speech by saying anyone who wishes to do such heinous act may leave his show immediately.
This act by Sam Carter made both fans of the band as well as people who hadn’t even heard of the metal band shared words of gratitude to Carter. More power to you Mr Carter.
Let’s make this world a beautiful place together.
