All the stars hit the stage fiercely

However, she is not the only celebrity to be a victim of such incidents. Earlier this year, Bebe Rexha needed stitches near her eyebrow after being hit by a thrown cell phone during a concert in New York.

Similarly, Harry Styles suffered an eye injury during a performance this summer.

The singer has experienced numerous instances of being hit by objects ranging from bouquets to chicken nuggets and even Skittles.

Kelsea Ballerini suffered a blow to the face from what many online believed to be a bracelet during a performance, and Kid Cudi reportedly had a water bottle thrown in his face during a concert.

Even the famous Adele, who has been affected by such incidents in the past, talked about these incidents while performing on stage.

During her Las Vegas residency this summer, Adele issued a stern warning to her fans, “F*****g dare you.” Dare to throw something at me. Have you noticed how people in America are forgetting the etiquette of showing obscenity? They’re just talking nonsense on stage.”

Internet angry over Florence Pugh’s incident on stage

Social media immediately expressed their outrage over Pugh’s incident, with many condemning the incident as “disgusting”.

One user asked, ‘Why did someone do this?’ Another said, “Disgusting. It’ll get to the point where people won’t want to do live events or concerts if they have to worry about people throwing stuff at them and getting hurt.”
