Sandler's rep called the touch a "friendly gesture," but the media and some viewers seem to think it was much more.

Adam Sandler repeatedly touched "The Crown" star Claire Foy's leg on "The Graham Norton Show" Friday, causing both viewers and the media to swarm.

Page 6, The Daily Mail, Digital Spy, and Fox News were among the outlets writing about the moment described in one headline as "uncomfortable," while others focused on Sandler getting blasted by viewers.

A statement from Foy on Sunday, however, suggests she wasn't offended herself. "We don't believe anything was intended by Adam's gesture and it has caused no offense to Claire," her representative said.

A spokesman for Sandler said the actor's actions was just a "friendly gesture."

The awkward encounter comes after a string of A-listers accused Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault, including rape.

It seems the scandal has everyone on high alert for more men harassing women, and Sandler has been caught in the crossfire, even if the knee touch caused "no offense to Claire."
