In a recent video going viral on the internet, Cardi B was seen throwing her microphone at a concertgoer who tossed their drink at the rapper onstage.
The viral clip sees Cardi wearing a bright orange dress while performing on stage in the daylight hours, performing her 2018 hit “Bodak Yellow,” and raises the microphone to her face for another verse before suddenly a spray of liquid is seen hitting her in the face from a drink a cup in the audience.
Cardi appears shocked for a brief second and then gets angry and swings into action as she throws the microphone at someone in the audience, presumably the drink-tosser.
Security members can be seen surrounding the person in the crowd, while Cardi B appears exasperated on stage.
The rapper retweeted a video of the moment, originally captioned: “Jealous A** B****!” in reference to her recently released song “Jealousy.”
She features on the track by her husband, Offset, released on Friday (Jul. 28, 2023).
The two musicians met in 2017 and got married that same year. Cardi B filed for divorce from the Migos rapper in September 2020 before the two got back together in October.
Cardi B is not the first musician this year to be harassed during a performance.
Across this year, many artists have been pelted with inappropriate items during their shows.
In June, Bebe Rexha required stitches in her face after she was pelted with a phone by a concertgoer in Chicago.
Pop singers Ava Max and Pink have also been the subject of fan overreach after being slapped in the face and pelted with a bag of ashes, respectively, while country-pop artist Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the face by a bracelet.
A phone was flung at Drake during the opening night of his It’s All a Blur tour, while sex toys were thrown at Lil Nas X during his headline show.
