Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke Hernandez is speaking out to ET about her second fan attack while on tour in Mexico.
The 23-year-old star was performing at the Auditorio Banamex in Monterrey, Mexico, on Thursday when a male fan stormed the stage and attempted to wrap his arms around her. While a security guard immediately intervened, Hernandez had to pull herself free before falling to the ground.
“I am thankful that I or anyone else was not injured, as these incidents could have gone awry,” Hernandez tells ET. “I love the fans and appreciate their excitement and love for us, however, these situations could easily escalate in the wrong direction for us and the fans.”
“I am fine though,” the “Worth It” singer continued. “I love our fans and am excited to continue performing my heart out on our 7/27 Tour!”

She later pleaded on social media for fans to be gentle around the group.
“Please be careful and gentle so nobody get hurts,” she wrote. “That was scary.”
The group is currently in Guadalajara for the final stop of their Mexican tour, before heading to Europe.
