Florence Pugh was shocked when something was thrown from the crowd and hit her in the face during a "Dune: Part Two" talk at Comic-Con in São Paolo, Brazil, on Sunday.
The event happened as Pugh, 27, stood near the edge of the stage with her co-stars, including Timothée Chalamat, Austin Butler, Zendaya, and others, to take pictures.
In social media videos, it's not clear what was thrown, but it hit her right eye in the middle of the face. She seems to say "Oh, wow" and reach for the thing on the ground in a clip.
The moment was caught on camera on social media, and the star was shocked. She touched her head before bending down to grab the thing. She looked at her co-stars after the event and they seemed to be surprised too.
Before what happened, she told him what she thought about working on the movie.
I had an amazing time coming in and just hanging around with these people, let alone actually getting to work with them.- Florence Pugh
Coming in here - the power in this room - is because of that first movie, and we felt that when we went on set every single day. So it feels really, really special being here with the second one.- Florence Pugh
Pugh didn't seem too hurt after the event, but that hasn't always been the case for people who have been onstage and been hit by something thrown by an audience member. In June, Bebe Rexha was hit in the face by a flying cellphone. She needed stitches to heal.
A problem that keeps coming up is fans throwing things at artists on stage. Harry Styles, Pugh's co-star in "Don't Worry, Darling," was also hit by a fan throwing something at him during a show in Austria. While walking across the stage, the musician was hit. He put his hands over his eyes and winced in pain.
In the summer of this year, Drake was also hit by something at a show in Chicago. While she was in Las Vegas, Cardi B hit back at a fan who threw her microphone back at her for water.
While she was in Las Vegas, Adele spoke out against the trend of fans throwing things at artists.
Have you noticed how people are like forgetting fucking show etiquette in America, they’re just throwing shit on stage Have you seen that? I fucking dare you. Dare you to throw something at me.- Adele
Taylor Swift stopped one of her shows in Buenos Aires last month to tell her fans not to throw things. She said:
It really freaks me out. Because communication means having gentle, healthy boundaries, it really freaks me out when stuff gets thrown on the stage, because if it’s on the stage then a dancer can trip on it. I love that you brought presents and that is so nice, but just can you please not throw them on the stage. I love you so much.- Taylor Swift
They went after the stars first, then the musicians. Fans throwing things at performers on stage is becoming a more disturbing trend, and Florence Pugh is the latest target. The event happened on Sunday while the actress was at a Dune: Part Two Panel at a Comic-Con event in São Paulo, Brazil.
Pugh was taking pictures with co-stars Timothée Chalamet, Austin Butler, and Zendaya while they talked about the sci-fi movie. Suddenly, something flew at the stage and hit her in the face.
