With everyone in the entertainment industry on sexual harassment high alert, actor Adam Sandler is getting slammed on social media Sunday for creepily touching actress Claire Foy’s knee during an interview on BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show”.
Looking uncomfortable, Claire in the end put her hand over his to show him that she had noticed him resting his hand there.
Emma Thompson, who was also a guest on the show, appeared then to look confused at why Adam kept touching Claire’s knee throughout the awkward encounter.
Fans vented on Twitter, with one saying: “Claire Foy replacing Adam Sandler’s hand onto his own knee rather than hers, was the perfect “haha dont touch me again” move #GrahamNorton”
While another said: “Adam Sandler has no social awareness of how awkward he seemed to be making Emma Thompson and Claire Foy #stoptouching #GrahamNorton”.

Other fans thought all the criticism was a bit much:
Adam Sandler touched Dustin Hoffman’s knee 3 times on the Tonight Show recently. Some women are making a mockery of legitimate assault
