Harry Styles is nailing his solo tour each and every night, however, kiwis are becoming a bit of a problem for him. Yes, the actual fruit. If you go to one of his shows, just don't bring it. Don't even try to buy it beforehand. As a matter of fact, don't even think about buying it. The former One Direction crooner obviously has a song titled, "Kiwi" but we have a feeling that when he added the track to his official solo album playlist he never thought he'd be pelted with them on stage. Anddd, that's exactly what is happening now.
Harry appeared on _BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show and said he has yet to be hit by the particular fruit. However, we don't foresee that streak continuing much longer. Harry was almost injured on stage at the Eventim Apollo in London because he half slipped on a Kiwi that had made its way on stage. He apparently told the crowd, "There was an actual kiwi onstage and that was the culprit. There was a green, seedy mush on the floor. Oh, there's another one. This could end up being a problem. If anyone else brought fruit to this show…. did anyone else? Shame on you."

Yikes. So, the good people of Manchester tried to stop this from happening again. Ahead of Harry's performance there, a grocery store banned anyone who is under 25 years old from buying the fruit. Legitimately, this is not a joke. Everyone who tried to buy a kiwi in this particular store was carded and we're are actually over here lolling. Can you imagine?! The store even put out a statement that read, "We know our customers love Harry Styles and we feel it’s our duty to protect a fellow Mancunian from any 'bad kiwis' amongst us. We’d hate to see a repeat of the mishap this evening, so to avoid any slippery situations, we feel this is a necessary measure."
Honestly, we have to give them some props on this one. That's pretty freaking cool that they are doing everything they can to protect the singer. Of course, the kiwi's are being thrown as a sign of adoration and love for the music but they can be dangerous. Just think about if someone threw the fruit from way back in the crowd as hard as they could in hopes of it making it on stage? What if it actually hit him? Things could really turn into a disaster.
So, wherever you are, just take this as a cautionary tale. No one wants Hazza injured. Come on, how terrible would that be if YOU were the fan that hurt him. You'd be THAT person. Let's just say, if you plan on seeing Harry in concert, leave the kiwi at home.
