The sole culprit behind Harry Styles' shoe shenanigan is making amends.
A Twitter user by the name of Jade Anderson has taken responsibility for clocking him in the groin when she threw her shoe onstage at a One Direction show Tuesday in Glasgow, and she's now apologizing to the boy bander for the ballsy move.
The 14-year-old, who hails from Scotland's East Kilbride town, took to Twitter shortly after the incident, writing, "tonight i threw my shoe and it hit harry in the balls then security came and took me out the concert then i got my shoe back hahahaha."
She didn't stay booted out of the show for long: Apparently, security later allowed her to return to the concert.
"The only reason the security let me back in is cos harry told them too," she said.
She also tried to make light of the situation, noting, "and the police were telling me that i 'commited a criminal assult' and i couldve killed him hahaha."
Well, her aim was at least good enough to literally bowl him over: After getting hit, Styles immediately collapsed in pain and curled up on the stage floor while cupping his crotch.
But proving that you can't keep a good man down for long, Styles quickly rebounded, got up and jokingly started doing some lunges.
Nice recovery there!
