A Harry Styles fan convinced the internet that the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer stole a microwave from the UBS Arena thanks to a hilarious TikTok that went viral.

Harry Styles wrapped up his ‘Love on Tour’ circuit at the UBS Arena in Long Island, New York on November 28.

Fans were ecstatic to see the former One Direction member belting out lyrics to his own original tunes… but that was far from the biggest news to come out of his performance.

After the tour wound down, a Harry Styles super-fan took to TikTok to claim that her father, who allegedly works as a cameraman, said that Styles stole a crew microwave from the UBS Arena.

The TikToker, Dianna Rainone, shared a series of texts between herself and her father to prove her point… and the exchange seemed so genuine that fans across the internet were convinced that Styles had nicked a microwave for some unknown reason after his performance.

A slew of hilarious memes were shared to social media in the viral video’s wake, with some fans expressing doubt that someone as famous and wealthy as Harry Styles would feel the need to pilfer a microwave from a concert venue.

Did Harry Styles really steal a microwave?

Luckily, it turns out that the entire ordeal was just a joke. Rainone later claimed that the video was just an inside joke between herself and her dad in a statement to the New York Post.

“He hit me out of nowhere saying the crew microwave was missing and he had joked around saying Harry Styles stole it,” she explained. “I could not stop laughing, so I figured why not make a TikTok about it?”

“I went to bed that night, not even checking the app, and I woke up to over like, 20,000 views and 12,000 likes, which was insane.”
