The video, which was published by The Sun showed the man from South Yorkshire fighting in the street and trading blows with another man.
The cameraman can be heard shouting: “Go on Haris” before the contestant hit the man, saying: “I’m not a bully, I’m not a f***ing bully, on my mum’s life.”
Before the official dumping was made public, a source told the publication: “Haris was booted off Love Island last night.
“There was a dumping and he got the chop.
“It is, in part, a relief for the show’s bosses in light of the video of Haris in a street fight.”

In a post-dumping interview with broadcaster ITV, Haris was asked: “What is your response to the reports following a video that was shared of you?”
In response, he said: “I’m devastated that this video has been seen, it’s not a reflection of my character.
“I’m not someone that goes looking for fights and I didn’t want to be in that situation. This was a heat of the moment thing. The video doesn’t show everything that happened.
He added: “Afterwards we met up and we cleared the air; we’ve shaken hands and we get along now. It’s not something that would happen again.
