In a video going viral on the internet, Cardi B is seen throwing her microphone at a concertgoer who tossed a drink at her on stage while she was performing. During an outdoor set at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas on Saturday, the 30-year-old singer is seen looking surprised when the drink is thrown at her while she performed her hit “Bodak Yellow.”
Cardi retaliates by throwing her microphone at the concertgoer, who is removed by security from the crowd. Reports say Cardi continued to perform after her team calmed her. The rapper later retweeted another video of the incident shared by a fan. People are impressed with Cardi’s reaction after the incident.
“She did what needed to be done!” @crdisdior wrote. “People need to stop throwing stuff at performers!”
“This trend of attending female artists’ sets just to attack them is disgusting and I hope everyone participating gets that energy BACK,” @celestifairy tweeted.
The rapper is the latest musician to be attacked while performing. Drake, Harry Styles and Pink are other artists to have objects thrown at them during performances.
