Forget for a moment the rise of fascist MAGA Republicans, hell bent on destroying American democracy, what I wanna know is — did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine?
Ok, let’s look at the photo evidence.
This is Styles as he’s about to sit down next to Pine at the film festival where all of this took place. It definitely looks as though his mouth is pursed as if he’s spitting a little bit.
It’s right about at this moment that Pine pauses want he’s doing and seems to contain some surprise at what has just happened. It’s not this frame, but maybe the one immediately after it where this is most clear.
Then, even more interestingly, Pine slips his shades on just as the lights go out for the movie to be shone.
So, my hunch is that, yes, Styles spit on Pine, but it may have not been intentional, given how jovial Styles looks just as the lights are going down. And if he did spit on Pine, it wasn’t a very aggressive spit. The way he pursed his lips was not like he was putting a lot of effort into it.
I’m not 100% sure that it happened, but it definitely seems as though it happened.
