Wether you love or hate someone, you shouldn’t ever resort to violence – even if the individual you hit does where over-the-top unisex clothing.
The Independent.co.uk reported that multiple reports say the 28-year-old singer was hit directly in the eye by what appeared to be a “Skittles” sweets. For those who aren’t aware, “Skittles” are small, hard, fruit-flavored sweets, or [candy] if you reside in the United States. Now, you wouldn’t initially think that tiny little sweets could do a great amount of damage to a full grown man. Well, think again. Imagine if you were hit in the eye by a small stone – not much of a difference.
In a video that is making rounds on the social media junket, Styles can be seen recoiling as one object appears to hit him directly in his eye. His head snaps back, and his hand comes up to shield his face.

For the remainder of the Styles show, the singer continued to touch or rub his eye and was visibly squinting – I’m not surprised. What is all the more surprising is that he didn’t even take a break to be tended to backstage.
A member of the “As It Was” singer’s band, Pauli Lovejoy, confirmed during an Instagram Live session that a Skittles candy was indeed thrown at Styles.
While revealing that Styles’s eye wasn’t injured, Pauli said: “But do me a favor – don’t throw no more Skittles on stage.” No more Skittles, really? He should have written – Don’t throw anymore Skittles onstage. Thank you. Regardless, many of the British artist’s fans shared their fury over the incident on social media.
“Whoever the f*** threw a solid object at his eye, you literally ruined ‘Kiwi’ bc he wouldn’t open his eye for the whole song,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Another person added: “Some of you never learned basic human respect. Like can you all STOP throwing stuff at him.”
When fans resort to throwing “Skittles”, it’s a sad sign that we need to tighten our security on sugar.
