Olivia Rodrigo was savagely smacked in the head with a bunch of flowers during her concert on Tuesday night as she continued her Guts tour at Madison Square Garden in New York.

While walking through the pit to greet her fans and accept their gifts, which included fluffy cowboy hats and friendship bracelets, the 21-year-old popstar was presented with a bouquet of flowers which she seemed to miss.

She was then smacked in the head by the flowers thrown by an enthusiastic fan.

The star winched and quickly moved away from the bouquet but quickly regained her composure and continued to greet her fans with a wide grin. 

The smack from the stem side of the bouquet was clearly an uncomfortable blow but fans were impressed as the star acted as if nothing was wrong.

The video of the incident was posted on X by a fan named @elusivlivs.

@BPDXTCXMPUTER commented: ‘The way she kept smiling and kept it pushing…. UGH love her to BITS, whoever did that will see.’

Another fan @jps_aririah added: ‘Celebrities are so strong bc I would quit and go into hiding at the first minor inconvenience.’

While the fans may have celebrated Olivia, many judged the fan’s behaviour as ‘dangerous’ and took to X to express this sentiment.  

@DavidXyzFord said: ‘Shoving the flowers at her and throwing them is dangerous. Just terrible and awful behavior.’

@popculturedose added: ‘She should’ve picked them up and threw them right back at her. Y’all don’t know how to act. This is so messed up.’

This isn’t the first time during a concert that a singer has been attacked by an object thrown by an overexcited fan.

In June last year, Bebe Rexha was smacked in face by fan’s phone and collapsed on the stage in pain. The Me, Myself & I singer was left a black eye after the incident and Steri-Strips across her eyebrow.

Similarly, in July 2023, Harry Styles was hit in the eye by an object thrown by a fan during Love on Tour in Vienna. The As It Was singer was seen doubling over in pain during the incident and clutching his face as he made a swift exit backstage. 

In the same month, Lil Nas X was baffled as he was almost hit by an adult toy while he was performing in Sweden.
