Here the summary, by senior entertainment reporter Chris Jancelewicz:

Benjamin Glaze went on singing competition American Idol in the hopes of scoring a spot on the reality show. Instead, the then-19-year-old got a kiss on the lips — his first kiss ever — by judge Katy Perry.

He never consented to the kiss from Perry, and said he would’ve refused had the famous singer asked permission in the first place.

But Glaze clarified that he didn’t feel sexually harassed.

Many pointed out that if the genders were reversed, the reaction to this would be different.
