In recent times, a troubling trend has emerged within concert culture, and even the popular singer Harry Styles has not been spared from its consequences. This distressing trend involves concert attendees purposely throwing objects at performers, aiming to create viral moments that can be shared on social media platforms, elevating their own online presence. As the trend continues to gain momentum, it raises concerns about the safety and well-being of artists on stage.
Harry Styles Struck in Eye by Thrown Object During Concert
During a performance in Vienna, Austria, Harry Styles was hit in the eye by a thrown object. As he walked across the stage between songs, the object struck him, causing him to bend over, cover his eyes with his hands, and visibly wince in pain.
This is not the first time Styles has been targeted. In a previous incident, someone threw Skittles at him during a concert in Los Angeles, and he was also hit by a thrown chicken nugget at a show in New York.
Recent Incidents Where Concertgoers Targeted Artists
Artists like Bebe Rexha, Pink, Drake, Kid Cudi, Steve Lacy, Kelsea Ballerini, and Ava Max have recently fallen victim to targeted acts during their performances. Adele, in a recent Las Vegas show, vowed to confront anyone who throws objects at her.
Among these incidents, Bebe Rexha suffered a serious injury when a thrown phone struck her near her eye, leading to her collapse on stage. Subsequently, a 27-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident.
These troubling occurrences emphasize the importance of respect and safety at live concerts.
