It has become a trend that when singers are performing live, people throw things at them without thinking about how harmful it will be to the person in front of them. Charlie Puth recently addressed the trend of throwing objects at singers during their concerts. Bebe Rexha, Ava Max and, most recently, Kelsea Ballerini, have been injured by fans at their concerts in recent weeks.
Charlie took to his Twitter account on Friday and denounced these shameless incidents. He tweeted: “This trend of throwing things at performers while they are on stage needs to come to an end. (Drink, Ava, AND NOW Kelsea Ballerini…) It’s so disrespectful and very dangerous. Please, enjoy the music I ask of you…”

On Wednesday, Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the face when a fan threw an object at her onstage during her performance in Boise, Idaho. Incidental video of the live concert that she captures that exact moment went viral on social media shortly after. She stopped the performance for a moment to leave the stage.
She addressed the incident on the same show, saying: “I mean about what just happened, all I care about is keeping everyone safe. So if you ever feel unsafe, please let someone around you know. There’s security everywhere tonight.
Guy. I know we all mean well. We all want to show love to Kelsea in the best way we know how, and shower her with all of her gifts. But throwing things on stage where the performers are already so vulnerable is NOT the move. If you can’t give it to him, there are many other options. Gentleman,… pic.twitter.com/oIgy2JDn3V

Early last month, Bebe Rexha suffered an injury while performing at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in midtown Manhattan. A fan threw a cell phone into her face, splitting her eyebrows and requiring stitches.
A few days after the Bebe Rexha incident, Ava Max was slapped in the face by a man who came onstage during a concert in Los Angeles.
