Claire Foy was not offended by Adam Sandler repeatedly touching her knee during their appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” a gesture for which Sandler is being criticized on Twitter.

Foy’s representative told The Daily Mail that “we don’t believe anything was intended by Adam’s gesture and it has caused no offense to Claire.”

The Twittersphere mocked Sandler for repeatedly touching Claire Foy’s knee during their recent appearance on the BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show” last Friday.

“Adam Sandler has no social awareness of how awkward he seemed to be making Emma Thompson and Claire Foy,” one user wrote.

“So Adam Sandler repeatedly touched Claire Foy’s knee…on tv, in front of witnesses. See how easy it is? And he did it despite recent news,” wrote one. “Claire Foy replacing Adam Sandler’s hand onto his own knee rather than hers, was the perfect ‘haha don’t touch me again’ move,” another observer tweeted.

Model Cara Delevingne and actress Emma Thompson also appeared on the show with the pair.

However, some people were quick to defend Sandler, calling the response to Sandler’s gesture an overreaction, arguing it was obviously just a friendly gesture. The actor did the same with Dustin Hoffman during an interview with Jimmy Fallon earlier this month.

Foy’s spokesperson has not yet responded TheWrap’s request for comment. A representative for Sandler has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
