Harry Styles hit with bottle during concert

One Direction frontman Harry Styles was left a little stunned stunned after he was hit by a bottle during a concert in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Tuesday night (01Sep15).

The group was performing at Lincoln Financial Field when a fan threw a bottle of water onstage, striking Styles in the face while he was in the middle of their closing tune, Best Song Ever, prompting the 21 year old to exit the stage early, clutching his face.


Following the incident, attendee Hanna Cooke posted a message on Twitter.com taking responsibility for the act, writing, "I accidentally hit him in the face and he doesn’t even notice me what a waste."


After her admission, Cooke was attacked on the social media site and she later claimed a bodyguard threatened to sue her if Styles was left injured.


She subsequently posted an apology writing, “As I've said so many times, I'm truly sorry. I apologize to Harry and his family for doing such a ridiculous and stupid thing. I laughed because I was shocked and I didn’t know what to do. I never meant to hurt him.


"I love Harry with all my heart and I promise you I feel so bad. I'm sure Harry doesn’t want his fans to tell someone that they should die, not even after what I did."


Styles' mother also waded into the furor, initially scolding audience members who were throwing things, but later asking fans to refrain from threatening Cooke.
