Harry Styles had a bit of an awkward moment during his concert at California’s Kia Forum in Inglewood on Thursday as his pants got ripped onstage right in the middle of his performance.
To make things even more awkward, Styles’ ‘first celebrity crush’ Jennifer Aniston was also sitting in the audience during the performance. The incident has now sparked hilarious memes and jokes on the internet.
Harry Styles Splits Pants Onstage During Concert
The pop star was performing his song Music For A Sushi Restaurant during his Love On Tour concert in Los Angeles on January 26, when he went down on his knees just a little away from the stage’s front. He threw his arms wide open, but at the same moment, his trousers ripped at the crotch area, revealing his inner thigh.
The 28 year old singer then quickly covered the hole with his hand and turned away from the audience. He then grabbed a Pride flag from an audience member, wrapped it around his waist, and continued with his performance. After the song, he went backstage and changed into another pair of pants.

Styles then returned to the stage and apologized to the audience, saying, “My trousers ripped. I feel I must apologize to a certain few of you right down in the front there. I mean, this is a family show.” He pointed to a man in the crowd and joked, “You, sir, are you OK? I promise it’s not part of the show.”
The Moment Sparked Hilarious Memes
The moment might have been embarrassing for Styles, but it did lead to funny memes on social media, especially since Aniston was also present in the crowd. “Harry really out there tripping and splitting his pants in front of Jennifer Aniston. She’s in that man’s head,” wrote a fan.

“if i had a nickle for every time harry styles ripped his pants on stage then used a pride flag as a skirt to cover it i would have two nickles which isn’t alot but it’s weird that it happened twice,” wrote another.
A fan also tweeted, “Harry Styles’ pants rip right in front of his first celebrity crush Jennifer Aniston… Custom Gucci pants. Not sure Gucci wanted this sort of ‘exposure’ but here we are,” while another joked, “Honestly, ripping his pants when his crotch is like 10 feet from people’s faces is one of the most Harry Styles things to ever happen to him.”

This is not the first time the singer has ripped his pants during a performance. In December 2022, he was performing in São Paulo in Brazil when his sequinned jumpsuit got torn, and he again used a Pride flag to cover himself up.
Earlier in October, Styles was hit in his crotch by a water bottle thrown by an audience member at his concert in Chicago. At the time, he took a moment’s pause and shook off his leg but did not stop his performance.
