In the video that has been circling on social media, Bebe Rexha is interrupted during her performance by a flying phone. Unfortunately, this phone struck the singer in the face, and she fell to the floor, curled in pain. The concert, which took place at Pier 17 on Sunday, June 18, stopped after the incident. Rexha was taken to a hospital and reportedly needed three stitches.

“No but this is ASSAULT idc what anyone says,” a commenter noted in a Twitter thread.
