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.
