Even though one is momentarily rendered blind by stray candies, the act must go on.
The incident was caught on camera by concertgoers while Harry Styles was performing as part of the Love on Tour in Los Angeles on Monday night. Styles can be seen obviously retching in the social media videos once the thing makes contact with his eye. The “As It Was” vocalist kept moving down the stage as he took his last bows.
After the accident, Styles continued to perform “Kiwi” while wiping and squinting through the wounded eye.

Attendees claimed that the object was a Skittle, and musician Pauli the PSM, a member of Styles’ tour-support band, corroborated this. Pauli stated during an Instagram Live that Styles’ eye was fine, adding, “Do me a favor, don’t throw no more Skittles on stage.”
