The English actress, 27, was stunned when an object thrown from the crowd hit her in the eye.

She was in Sao Paolo, Brazil, at a Comic-Con event promoting Dune: Part Two on a panel on Sunday alongside her co-stars Timothee Chalamet, Austin Butler and Zendaya.

Florence is hit on the brow by the small object, and she appears to say “ow” before rubbing her face and then bending down to examine the item that struck her.

Fans condemned the ‘dangerous’ trend of throwing objects from the crowd.

One person said: “It’s going to get to the point where people do not want to do live events or concerts ... if they have to be worried about people throwing stuff at them and getting hurt.”

Another added: “Why do people do this?”

A third added: "Fans' recent behaviour is disturbing."

Earlier this month, Taylor Swift told fans not to throw things on stage “because if it’s on the stage then a dancer can trip on it.”

In June singer Bebe Rexha was injured after a phone was thrown onto the stage during a show in New York. She had to have stitches and a man was arrested on assault allegations.
