It would appear that even the great Taylor Swift cannot escape having fans throw stuff on the stage, as her ‘Era’s’ tour continued in South America over the weekend. Among a raft of incidents this year, from Drake dealing with extremely large bras being thrust towards him to some musicians actually being pelted off the stage, at least in the case of Swift they are, admittedly, nice things being thrown at her.

“Because communication means having gentle healthy boundaries, it really freaks me out when stuff gets thrown on the stage,” she told the crowd in Buenos Aires on Sunday night while seated at the piano. “Because if it’s on the stage then a dancer can trip on it. I love that you brought presents and that is so nice, but just can you please not throw them on the stage? I love you so much.”

That moment was shared throughout the Swift fandom, with the X (formerly Twitter) account Taylor Swift Updates going as far as to share video footage of Swift’s reasoning as to why people shouldn’t be throwing items on stage. The response from Swifties has, of course, been one of understanding and appreciation for the singer’s request.

“This is how you communicate to your fans. Such a class act,” wrote one fan, while another commented underneath the fan account post “Why they are throwing stuff on stage? Where are the manners?” Still, it could be worse - dare we venture into the era of bottle wars at Download Festival or a cup of urine dousing many an unpopular act at music festivals across the UK?

Swift's three-day stay in Buenos Aires has made numerous headlines, including a report about fans camping in line for five months to secure the first tickets for her Argentina Eras tour stops. The visit has also sparked a wave of photos featuring Swift and her current partner, Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
