I am terrified of vomit and this scene didn’t bother me at all. I actually didn’t even notice that he did vomit. I just saw him bent over catching his breath and then he starts kicking a barrel out of anger.

No but someone does make his finger into a gun and points it into his mouth, jokingly, which may be a trigger.
