One Direction’s Harry Styles just can’t seem to cut a break these days. It seems that when Harry is performing, his groin becomes target practice for excited fans and excited performers. Wednesday night, Harry Styles was hit in the groin by a shoe thrown by a fan. The hit sent Harry to the ground, doubled over in pain. Harry got back to his feet after a couple of moments resting on the stage floor.
The famous groin seems to be a magnet for injuries. According to Thursday’s Mercury news report, the groin has been hit several times during concerts. Sunday night Liam Payne whacked Harry hard enough to double him over, and last April Harry was hit while performing in Australia.

Maybe during the next concert Harry should grab a Ping-Pong paddle to fend off the flying objects.
