At an August 18 Dutch music festival, Architects frontman Sam Carter stopped the band's set so he could address something he'd seen during the last song: a man in the audience groping a woman while she was crowd-surfing. Carter furiously told the crowd this was not a place where such behavior was welcome, and someone caught his speech on video.

As someone who has been sexually harassed /inappropriately touched at a concert before this means a lot to me. Thank you xx— rebekka (@danixKneazle) August 18, 2017
good on u for calling it out, so tired of some men thinking they're entitled to grope women simply for daring to enjoy their time at a show— rei (@sadcrisis) August 19, 2017
Carter used his literal microphone to call out sexual harassment. Let's hope his example inspires people with all kinds of platforms to do the same. COME ON, MEN.
Yes! Thank you! 👏 All shows should be a safe place for everyone. Respect and decency cost nothing.— Annabelle Legg (@CatsberryRipple) August 18, 2017
