Cardi B has gone viral after a video of her throwing a microphone at one of the audience members at her concert went viral. The incident happened in Las Vegas on Saturday when Cardi B was performing at Drai’s Beachclub.
During her performance, an audience member threw a drink at Cardi B while she was performing her 2017 breakthrough hit ‘Bodak Yellow’. After getting splashed by the drink, Cardi B retaliated by throwing the microphone towards the ‘fan’. A bunch of bodyguards rushed on stage and the fan who allegedly threw the drink was seen being escorted out by security. Post the incident, Cardi-B left the stage.
Artists vs Projectiles
This is not the first time that fans have been throwing stuff on stage. In June of this year, a fan threw his phone at Bebe Rexha which injured the ‘Break My Heart Myself’ singer. The alleged fan ‘Nicolas Malvagna’ since then has been arrested and is facing criminal charges.
This however isn’t Cardi’s first mic throw as the night before, she threw her microphone toward her DJ who was cutting off her song early during another performance. As per People, Cardi B is yet to comment on the situation.
Country Singer Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the eye by a bracelet thrown at her by a fan during a show in Boise, Idaho. This however is not a new trend. Back in the 70’s before phones existed, fans used to burst firecrackers. During a Led Zeppelin concert, guitarist Jimmy Page seriously injured his right hand as a result of this.
‘This is a horrible PR Stunt’ say Cardi B fans
Videos have been doing the rounds on the internet where Cardi asked her fans to throw drinks at her. In a video, the DJ asks the crowd to ‘Splash her down!’ and Cardi B is seen encouraging the act.
Another video gives a much closer look at the incident, the fan is clearly seen splashing Cardi B with their drink and immediately apologizes after Cardi throws the mic. Another thing to note is that the mic apparently hit a different fan.

It also exposed her lip sync and some are comparing her to Milli Vanilli.— Island Girl – 100% Pro-Choice, Vote Blue in 2022 (@bluepolitics_) July 31, 2023

Users on Twitter have been calling out Cardi B for her erratic response. This clearly was not the first time she threw something and her fans started sharing videos of her prior antics. What is more amusing is that Cardi B is being called out for lip-syncing. The music continued to play after she threw the microphone.
