Lady Gaga has been praised for keeping her cool after a teddy bear was thrown at her head mid-performance on Saturday (6 August).
The 36-year-old tried to dodge the soft toy as she belted out her song 'Hold My Hand' at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.
In a video filmed by an audience member, Gaga appeared immersed in the ballad’s lyrics when the teddy bear was launched at her and grazed her head. Watch below:
Despite being hit, the 'Poker Face' hitmaker proved she was the ultimate professional as she didn’t miss a note and carried on as if nothing had happened.
After capturing the moment, Gaga fan Jo Shelton took to Twitter to share the moment and urged fellow concertgoers to refrain from chucking objects on stage.
She wrote alongside the footage: “How do some fans think this is okay... this is so dangerous and sad. :(.”
In response to the clip, one fan commented: “This is so not ok holy s**t.”
While another remarked: “The throwing of things on stage needs to stop, period. Some of you claim they’ve seen this before. I’ve performed professionally for 38 years.
“Often in front of large crowds. I’ve only ever seen two bands get things thrown at them, and they both left the stage. Unacceptable.”
“Yeah, it gotta stop,” a fan simply weighed in. “First Ariana Grande with a Lemon, then a rapper with water bottles, now Lady Gaga.”
“Why do people do this? I mean what is the purpose of throwing things at celebs?” another asked.
After posting the clip, Shelton revealed she decided to share it to warn other fans off doing the same and applauded Gaga for ‘not missing a beat’ despite being hit.
She told MailOnline: “I decided to record a part of Gaga's finale because 'Hold My Hand' is such a beautiful piece and is very meaningful to me.
“I accidentally got this incident on video, and at first we didn't know who threw it or what the object even was, probably due to the fact that Gaga is an absolute professional and did not miss a beat.
“I wanted to share it with other fans to discourage people from throwing things on stage because no matter how well intentioned you are, you can never predict where something will land when thrown.”
