Cardi B finds herself at the center of attention once again after a video emerged showing her allegedly hitting a concert-goer with her microphone during a recent performance. This incident has reignited discussions about the concerning trend of fans throwing objects at artists while they’re on stage. Here’s what you need to know about the incident.
The incident took place during Cardi B’s performance at Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas over the weekend. Amidst her WAP rap, a concert-goer threw a drink at the rapper, leaving her visibly upset. Reacting quickly, Cardi B retaliated by throwing her microphone at the individual. Despite the encounter, she continued with her performance.
The video of the incident quickly went viral, and many fans rallied in support of the artist. One user expressed, “She did what needed to be done! People need to stop throwing stuff at performers!” Another tweet highlighted the disturbing trend of fans attacking female artists during their sets.
Cardi B herself posted a video in response to the drink-throwing incident, writing, “Water and gas included… literally.” This isn’t the first time she has used her microphone as a way to respond to rude behavior from fans. In a previous incident during the 2022 Wireless Festival, she reportedly hit a fan with her microphone multiple times.
Sadly, Cardi B is not the only artist to face such challenges. Just last month, during a concert in Los Angeles, Ava Max was injured when a male fan unexpectedly slapped her on the face. And before that, Bebe Rexha had a phone intentionally thrown at her during a performance in NYC.
The incidents have sparked concern among fans and artists alike, raising questions about concert-goers’ behavior and the need for better security measures to protect performers during their shows.
