Well, Chris' reps have finally issued a statement — and according to them, it didn't happen.
The actor's reps cleared the air to Variety, saying that rumors of the "ridiculous story" — which originated on Sunday night after a video circulated of Harry appearing to spit on Chris' lap — are "a complete fabrication and the result of an odd online illusion that is clearly deceiving and allows for foolish speculation."
“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine," the statement continued. "There is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama that simply does not exist.”
So this clears up one piece of the continuing drama around everything regarding Don't Worry Darling and its Venice premiere.
Which means that, for now, we can enjoy some of the excellent memes that Chris gave us in peace.
