In the video, Holland can be seen and heard telling someone he would throw their things on the ground if they did not stop pushing the young woman who said she was hacing a panic attack.

Graphers do not have a great reputation among fans and celebrities alike as they chase autographs from famous people to sell to the highest bidder.
They also happen to be mostly older men who are more interested in getting the signature than actually meeting the person who signed.
Many people have been praising Tom Holland for his actions:
