Following their recent appearance at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of their movie, Don't Worry Darling, Harry Styles and Chris Pine recently became trending topics on social media.
According to a viral video from the movie's showing, Harry allegedly spit on Chris while seated next to the actor. Netizens started calling this incident "spitgate."
Harry Styles recently addressed the same during one of his live concerts, while Chris Pine's representatives afterwards dismissed the charges in a statement.
Styles made fun of the Don't Worry Darling premiere's viral video clip during his latest performance in Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, saying that he "went very swiftly to Venice to see the film."
The actor's representatives issued a statement on behalf of Pine in which they claimed, "This is a stupid narrative, a complete fabrication, and the outcome of a strange web illusion that is blatantly deceptive and allows for dumb speculation."
Given the ongoing conflict between lead actress Florence Pugh and director Olivia Wilde, the Don't Worry Darling debut at the Venice Film Festival was rife with controversy and drama.
Even though Pugh travelled to Venice for the screening, she was not present for the press conference or seen mingling with Wilde or Styles at the premiere.
While working on the movie, Florence and Olivia are said to have fallen out over the wage gap between her and Styles.
