Harry is targeted in a sensitive area

Harry Styles endured a rather agonising incident on stage in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The One Direction singer’s dad Des told his Twitter fans at the weekend that Harry, 20, had suffered a blow to the crotch while performing to screaming fans.

The curly-haired heartthrob was only targeted by a teddy but it seems as though he was feeling a little tender afterwards.

‘Felt H’s pain as he was hit in the mans front area by a cuddly toy thrown at the stage! Also felt pain at OT today as United lost again! X,’ Tweeted Des.

This isn’t the first time that fans have aimed toys at Harry‘s nether region – during a concert in Sydney, Australia in 2012, a furry wombat was thrown at his privates.

A couple of months earlier, he revealed that he’d been hit in the face by a tampon.

But Directioners aren’t too sympathetic about Harry‘s pain and think Des‘s Tweet about his latest on-stage injury is pretty hilarious.

‘Des omg haha I’m laughing,’ Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘hahaha if it continues to hit him like that youll never have grandchilds.’
