After Kelsea Ballerini was recently hit in the face with a bracelet thrown by a concertgoer at her show, Charlie Puth begged fans to “just enjoy the music.”

Kelsea Ballerini Addresses Critics After Onstage Incident

Charlie Puth would not like to see another singer be pelted with an object again.

The “One Call Away” musician spoke out in defense of his fellow entertainers on June 29, a day after Kelsea Ballerini was struck in the face by a bracelet tossed from the crowd at her recent show in Boise, Idaho.

“This trend of throwing things at performers while they are on stage must come to an end,” he tweeted, before noting how Bebe Rexha and Ava Max also recently suffered injuries at their concerts. “It’s so disrespectful and very dangerous. Please just enjoy the music I beg of you.”

Indeed, there’s been a wide range of items thrown at artists performing onstage in recent days. For example, Pink was left absolutely stunned when a concertgoer at June 25’s British Summer Time Festival threw a bag of ashes in her direction.

In a now-viral TikTok video of the moment, the “Just Like a Pill” singer—who was not hit in the incident—was picked up the bag and asked, “This is your mom?”

She added, before putting the satchel on the edge of the stage, “I don’t know how to feel about this.”

Since being hit at her June 28 concert, Kelsea also spoke out and addressed the importance of having a safe space during her performance.

“Someone threw a bracelet, it hit me in the eyes,” she wrote on Instagram Stories June 29, “and it more so just scared me than hurt me.”

While the country music star assured fans she was “fine” following the incident, she noted, “We all have triggers and layers of fears way deeper than what is shown, and that’s why I walked offstage to calm down and make sure myself, band and crew, and the crowd all felt safe to continue.”

“That’s all I ever want,” Kelsea continued, “is for shows to feel like a safe place for us all.”

The Rolling Out the Welcome Mat musician also called out criticism against her for voicing her concerns. Sharing a screenshot of an online comment calling her “soft” for speaking out, Kelsea wrote, “a sad, scary world we live in.”
