The 33-year-old was performing at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in Manhattan on Sunday night when the show took a scary turn.

As seen in a viral video shared by a fan, Rexha was hit in the face by a cell phone thrown by another concertgoer. Her team quickly rushed to the stage after she fell to her knees in pain.

Per WABC, a 27-year-old man named Nicolas Malvagna was arrested and charged with assault after it was determined he intentionally threw the phone at her.

Footage of the incident swiftly circulated online on Sunday night as social media users decried the disturbing rise of alarming behavior at concerts.

"Right in the eye. I would never. Do you know how many people dream of going to a single concert in their lifetime and then some idiot does this. So disrespectful," one user said.

Another fan referenced singer Steve Lacy, who faced some criticism for smashing a fan's camera that was thrown on the stage last October.

"This why Steve lacy reacted the way he did btw," another wrote. "the fans are too damn comfortable throwing things on stage."

Some recent concertgoers have tossed their phones at artists performing in the hopes that they'll record a video or take their BeReal, and while it's sometimes done successfully, Rexha's injury proves this trend has gone too far.

Unfortunately, it isn't just phones and cameras that have caused chaos on stage, as other performers have suffered injuries from various random objects inexplicably thrown by fans.

At Love on Tour in 2022, Harry Styles suffered an eye injury when a fan threw Skittles at him, and he was also hit with a bottle a month prior.
