Faith Hill has said plenty on the subject. Now, husband Tim McGraw has finally weighed in on being groped by a female fan this summer.

“I just kind of thought it was disrespectful, not only to me and to my wife but to herself,” McGraw tells Extra.

At a concert in Louisiana on July 28, a female fan grabbed McGraw in the crotch area as he walked between a barricade and the stage to greet fans.

Hill, who was on tour with her husband, chided the fan publicly from the stage, saying, “Somebody needs to teach you some class, my friend.” She spoke about the incident again in September on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saying her husband was “red and fuming” after the incident.

In the interview with Extra, he had a brief but pointed message for fans on the subject of groping. Said McGraw: “Don’t do that.”
