A hurled item struck actress Florence Pugh in the face on Sunday as she was performing at a Comic Con event in Brazil. Florence Pugh was on stage with her co-stars when the incident occurred.
Video footage shows her on the red carpet with co-stars Zendaya, Austin Butler, and Timothée Chalamet, promoting their most recent movie, Dune: Part Two.
A seemingly audience-tossed item was thrown in her way while she was on stage.
The 27-year-old actress, who is up for an Oscar, took a blow to the right eye.
Pugh said to the São Paulo crowd earlier in the evening that it felt “really, very fantastic” to be in the highly anticipated sci-fi movie sequel.
The movie will be available in theaters in March 2024.
Pugh is the most recent celebrity to suffer injuries from items hurled by fans during a performance.
Pink seemed uneasy when a bag of human ashes was thrown onto the stage during her performance at BST Hyde Park, while Harry Styles was also struck in the eye with a sweet earlier in the year while performing in Austria.
Adele voiced her opinion about audience members throwing things onto the stage at a gig in Las Vegas in July.
She informed the audience in a widely circulated video that some had neglected to “display decorum” while brandishing a T-shirt gun.
“I dare you to hurl anything against me,” she joked with profanity.
During a concert in New York in June, a phone struck pop star Bebe Rexha, causing her to fall to the ground.
Following her hospitalization, she had surgery above her left eye.
The individual in question said that he believed “it would be humorous.”
What makes fans throw objects at performing artists?
Rapper Cardi B took things into her own hands in August when a fan tossed a drink at her during a Las Vegas performance.
In response, the 30-year-old threw her microphone off the stage at the concertgoer.
A Cardiff University professor studying the link between fans and their favorite artists, Dr. Lucy Bennett, told the BBC in June that since the COVID outbreak, people’s views may have evolved to the point “where we couldn’t be physically present at performances.”
She noted that because it’s more difficult for artists to be noticed on social media, some individuals could be attempting to grab the attention of celebrities.
“You will draw attention if you are hurling anything while in the same physical vicinity as them,” the woman said.
