With this, Ephrata, a model who was in the music video, talked about her experience filming with the singer. In an Instagram Live, Ephrata, with another model who was in the music video (Aalany McMahan), called Styles a “consent king.”

She recalled her experience saying that she remembers Styles asking her if he could touch her hair before doing so. Ephrata said, “The people were telling him to touch my hair and play with it and he was like, ‘Wait, wait, wait, pause. Can I even touch your hair? Is that even okay?’”
