There is a right way to eat asparagus, but not everyone knows it
It’s perfectly acceptable to pick up a firm, crisp asparagus with your fingers and eat it. But Gottsman warns, “People may not know this and think you are eating it incorrectly.

Consider the company you’re keeping and err on the safe side.
