Cardi B is the latest musician to be subjected to unpredictable fan behavior at a concert, following a abundance of incidents this summer where fans disrupt musicians, including Harry Styles, Bebe Rexha, and Kelsea Ballerini, while on stage, sometimes hurting them in the process.
Things escalated on Saturday in Las Vegas at Drai’s Beachclub, when the rapper was hit by a concertgoers’ drink.
Ironically performing her song “Bodak Yellow” (see lyrics), Cardi became furious and aggressively chucked her microphone toward the area in which the beverage came from, as seen in a fan-recorded video.
Security was immediately deployed to the area to address the situation, as Cardi remained onstage, fuming.
She was clearly performing with playback to her song; when she stopped rapping, the track continued.
At some point during the concert, Cardi actually asked the audience to throw water at her, admitting that she was very hot and would like to be cooled down. Fox News Digital reached out to a representative of the singer to clarify if she asked for water before or after the microphone incident.
Fans on social media had mixed reactions to Cardi B’s response, with some writing they would have done the same thing, while others condemned her for having a violent reaction.
Headliners have been plagued with similar, unfortunate events for the past two months.
Although not unique to the 21st century, fan behavior became noticeably problematic last month in New York City, when Rexha was hit in the face with a cellphone, resulting in the arrest of a man and the singer getting stitches.
