Thanks To Harry Styles, Brits Now Need IDs To Buy Kiwis

In case you haven't heard, Harry Styles was pelted with fruit during a recent performance of his song called "Kiki" at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and the incident led to a crackdown on the fruit.

Asda, a popular supermarket chain in England, banned the sale of the fruit to those under 25-years-old and announced necessary proof of ID at its Hulme Superstore in Manchester ahead of his follow-up show at the nearby O2 Apollo Manchester. "We know our customers love Harry Styles and we feel it's our duty to protect a fellow Mancunian from any 'bad kiwis' amongst us," a spokesperson for the company said. "We'd hate to see a repeat of the mishap, so to avoid any slippery situations, we feel this is a necessary measure."

Styles ended up losing his balance when he was on stage after the kiwi pelting but grabbed the mic stand to help continue the set. Needless to say, it was an unnecessary issue to have. "You may have seen me fall earlier during this song," he told the crowd after almost falling to the grown. "It appeared to be a kiwi. That was the culprit, some green seedy mush. Look, there's another! This could end up being a problem."
