American singer Bebe Rexha was hit in the face during her performance at a party in New York. The pop star walked off stage during the concert after she was hit in the face by a phone thrown in her face by a fan, causing her to fall to her knees. She was later taken from the scene, apparently still in pain, with her hand pressed to her face.
A video posted online showed a man being removed from the crowd by security men as fans shouted: “This is assault.” NYPD later confirmed that a 27-year-old attendee had been charged with assault.

I thought it was a CD or a piece of paper until I saw it fall.” Another added: “People were dressed in real clothes and were in a good mood because they were going to a concert, but this guy ruined everything.” A third commented: “A very disturbing end to a great show. Hope you are well.”
