Story of his life — One Direction‘s Niall Horan was injured after a show in the Netherlands last night (June 25) after being hit by a shoe thrown by a fan hit him in the leg.

According to RTE Ten, Horan’s knee was injured after the incident in Amsterdam Wednesday night when the projectile from the crowd struck him.

He later took to Twitter to (gently) tell off those involved, as well as make a plea to other fans to watch what they throw onto the stage.

“Also guys!” he tweeted. “Can you limit what gets thrown on stage please! Coz somethin thrown at me tonight! Hit my knee! A lot of pain from it!”

Horan added that while he didn’t want to sound like he was complaining, he said that he had only had an operation on his knee a few months ago — “I still get a bit of pain and I’m very scared about it.”

A Vine posted by a fan doesn’t show the hit in question but shows Horan limping off stage after the purported hit.

Afterward, Harry Styles — who was also hit in the face by a flying object during the show — held up the shoe that hit Horan and threw it off stage.
