Fifth Harmony’s Ally Brooke Hernandez suffered a scary run-in with a fan in Mexico.
According to E! News, the Fifth Harmony star found herself on the receiving end of a little too much enthusiasm while arriving at a Mexican airport on September 28 after she was almost dragged to the ground by an overzealous fan looking for a selfie.
The scary moment Hernandez was ambushed ahead of Fifth Harmony’s September 29 “7/27 Tour” stop in Monterrey, Mexico, was captured by passers by and later uploaded to social media by Fifth Harmony update account @ShadyFacts5H.
The fan captured footage shows Ally Brooke making her way through the Mexican airport with her team of security before being approached by a fan who seemingly wanted to take a selfie with the Fifth Harmony star.
The Fifth Harmony fan was then quickly apprehended by Hernandez’s security team for getting a little too close to the singer, though the male then appeared to pull Ally by the arm as he was being dragged away, almost forcing Hernandez to the ground.
Fifth Harmony’s dedicated followers flocked to social media to discuss the scary airport incident, sending their love to Ally Brooke following the attack by the overzealous fan.
“The video of Ally literally getting dragged by fans it’s so sad/scary,” Fifth Harmony fan @intoyounormani tweeted out of the airport attack. “They desperately need better security. Ally didn’t deserve that.”
“Honestly though why is it so hard for people to respect the girls at the airport,” Twitter user @candyflossally added of the Fifth Harmony girls. “[I] hope Ally and Lauren [Jauregui] are okay I can’t believe some people.”
Ally Brooke Hernandez also took to social media following the incident, telling Fifth Harmony fans that she was “okay” but noted that the encounter was pretty “scary.”
“Just to let you know, I am okay after the airport incident,” Hernandez told her more than 2.2 million Instagram followers in a message posted to the photo sharing site just hours after she was attacked. “Please be careful and gentle so nobody gets hurt.”
“That was scary,” the Fifth Harmony singer then continued, “Thank you!”
Ally Brooke, who is of Mexican decent, then continued her sweet message to Fifth Harmony fans by revealing that she wasn’t going to let the airport attack ruin her trip to the country, going on to tell her followers how excited she was ahead of the band’s September 29 show at Auditorio Banamex in Monterrey, Mexico.
“I couldn’t be happier to be here! It’s been a dream of mine since I was little,” Ally Brooke said ahead of Fifth Harmony’s second of three concerts in Mexico. “My favorite singer Selena Quintanilla had many beautiful performances here. And now I get to perform in this city! I’m beyond honored & proud. Te amo!!!!!!!”
Ally’s scary airport attack came just one day after Hernandez broke down in tears during Fifth Harmony’s “7/27 Tour” stop in Mexico City, where concert goers captured footage of Hernandez getting visibly emotional while addressing the crowd.
Fifth Harmony fan @5HFanClub uploaded footage of Ally Brooke tearing up during the first of Fifth Harmony’s three Mexican “7/27 Tour” stops, in which she can be heard telling the sold out crowd that she was overwhelmed by the amount of fans in attendance while wiping away tears.
“I can’t believe there are 10,000 people in here right now!” Ally told the thousands of Mexican fans in the clip, which was shot during Fifth Harmony’s sold out show at Mexico City’s National Auditorium on September 27. “Gracias!”
