The incident during Styles' New York residency at 

Madison Square Garden was captured in footage posted to Twitter

Styles says in the clip, with a big smile and holding

the poultry projectile. "Who threw the chicken nugget?"

As soon as the crowd "Eat this! Eat it!" starts shouting.

Styles reminds concert-goers that even if it's not extremely unhealthy, 

he doesn't enjoy the pink slime variety of dishes: "I don't eat chicken, sorry."

At least it wasn't the Morrissey show, or it might have stopped the concert midway.

Styles' residence at Madison Square Garden runs through September 21.
