Cardi B made headlines over the weekend after she hurled her microphone at an unruly concertgoer during a performance in Las Vegas. The incident took place while the New York rapper was performing her hit song “Bodak Yellow” at Drai’s Beachclub.
As Cardi B was on stage, a fan raised a white, decorated cup and threw liquid towards the rapper. Initially startled and visibly in disbelief, Cardi B quickly transformed into a fastball-throwing southpaw and launched her microphone at the woman. Security immediately intervened while Cardi B yelled from the stage, and the microphone was eventually returned to her. She then resumed her show, as seen in a video shared on her social media page.
According to a report by Nypost.com, it is unclear if any charges were filed against the concertgoer.
This was not the first time Cardi B resorted to throwing a microphone during a performance. The night before the incident in Las Vegas, Cardi B had thrown a microphone at the DJ at Drai’s nightclub. This occurred after she kept getting cut off during her performance, as captured in a TikTok video.

The video of Cardi B throwing her microphone has since gone viral, amassing over 25 million views on Twitter. Many fans have shown their support for the rapper’s actions. One Twitter user wrote, “Love her lol that’s exactly how she should’ve responded.” Another expressed admiration for Cardi B’s reaction.
Cardi B is not the only performer to have objects thrown at them on stage in recent months. Other musicians have also faced similar incidents.

The person responsible, Nicolas Malvagna, was subsequently arrested.
Singer Pink also had a shocking experience when a fan threw their mother’s ashes on stage during the British Summer Time festival. Lil Nas X faced a sex toy being thrown at him while performing at European Lollapalooza in Sweden earlier this month.
