A member of the audience nearly derailed a Harry Styles concert — by throwing candy.
While performing at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles in Monday night, part of his 15-night Love on Tour residency at the venue, Styles was hit in the eye with an object hurled from the audience.

In video taken by concertgoers and shared on social media, Styles can be seen recoiling on impact, with his head snapping back and his hand immediately rising to his eye; like the pro he is, however, Styles brushed it off and continued waving to the crowed.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the object that hit Styles in the eye was apparently a piece of Skittles candy, as reported by members of the audience.
This was was confirmed by Pauli the PSM, a member of Styles’ backing band, who spoke with fans during an Instagram Live session after the show.
