At a time when more men than ever are being accused of sexual misconduct, Healy’s behavior showed that not all men are ‘creeps.’
Still, online trolls have ridiculed the frontman, saying it’s ‘creepy’ that he checked her ID first.

She handed her driver’s license to one of the stage crew, who then passed it up to the singer on the stage between songs.
Matt, who previously dated FKA Twigs, took a moment to examine her birthday and even appeared to make sure the plastic was real.
So excited: The young fans’ best friend shared a short video of the event captioned, ‘my best friend kissed matty!!!’
OMG: As the crowd when wild, Healy and his adoring fan puckered up
A moment she will never forget: The young fan confirmed it was her ‘first kiss’ and she wanted it to be with him, her favorite rockstar
He then hopped off the stage and approached the young girl with red hair, who claimed this was ‘her first kiss.’
Fans screamed with excitement as the rockstar asked her: ‘Are you ready? Is this really your first kiss?’
The young fan nodded with excitement to confirm that it was indeed her very first kiss, and best of all, it was with her favorite performer.

Another fan recorded the event and posted the video to social media with the caption, ‘This is so sweet pls.’
A different fan, who was not so impressed commented, ‘If by sweet you mean creepy then yes I agree.’
