Graham Norton viewers slam Adam Sandler’s ‘uncomfortable’ behaviour

Adam Sandler has been criticised following an “uncomfortable” interview on The Graham Norton Show this week, during which he repeatedly put touched British actress, Claire Foy.

Viewers of the show took to Twitter to express to express their discomfort after the US actor placed his hand on Claire's knee as he told an anecdote about a trip with his parents.

Despite the actress appearing to squirm at the first touch, Adam once again reached over to rest his hand on her knee for a number of seconds.

Emma Thompson, who was also a guest on the show, seemed to be quite aware of the fact that the actor was acting inappropriately and appeared to glare at him until he removed his hand.

According to The Independent, a spokesperson for the married father-of-four described his actions as “a friendly gesture” – but rather unsurprisingly, not everyone interpreted them this way.

However, despite heavey criticism, many viewers jumped to the actor's defence, insisting his actions were harmless.
