Footage of Harry Styles seemingly crying and rubbing his eyes during a performance has surfaced this week after the announcement of Zayn leaving the band – but it seems that wasn’t the reason for the tears. 

A fan on twitter has shared footage of Harry receiving a blow to the face when someone threw an unidentified object at him from the crowd. 

It looks to hit in square in the eye at some force. 

We don’t blame the 1D heartthrob for tearing up after that! 

And shame on the fan who tried to injure Harry’s precious face! 


Not quite as romantic a notion as crying for his past band member, but certainly clears some things up.
