Rapper Cardi B struggled with a disruptive audience member during her performance in Las Vegas, where a new trend of throwing objects at artists by concert-goers has been causing trouble.
The incident seems to have taken place on Saturday during Cardi B’s scheduled performance at the Dry Club. In videos posted on social media, she can be seen performing her hit song “Bodak Yellow” on stage when someone from the crowd clearly threw a drink at her, causing her to get splashed.
Cardi B throws Microphone at Fan
Initially taken aback, Cardi B quickly retaliated by throwing her microphone at the person responsible.
The video, which contains offensive language, has been viewed over million times on YouTube.
When approached for comment, a representative for Cardi B did not immediately respond, and the Dry Club in Las Vegas did not provide any additional information upon request.
Cardi B is the latest artist to face such incidents during her performances, where crowds either physically attack them or throw objects on stage. Just last month, Bebe Rexha suffered an eye injury when a concert-goer threw a phone at her during a performance at Pier 17 in Manhattan.
The accused individual in this incident, Nicholas Malvagna, allegedly stated that he thought it would be funny to hit Rexha. His lawyer claimed he was hoping Rexha would take photos with him and then throw the phone back to him.
About a week later, in Idaho, singer Kelsie Ballerini was hit in the face by an object while performing her song “If you go down (I’m going down too).” After delivering the song, she left the stage to interact with fans.
In a video shared by a fan, she said, “I want to talk about what just happened right now. I just care about everyone’s safety. So if you ever don’t feel safe, please tell someone around you. There’s safety here. Everywhere tonight.
Earlier this month, during his music program in Vienna, Harry Styles appeared to be in pain after being hit by an object. The exact nature of the incident is unclear, but Styles was seen holding his head in his hands in a fan video, seemingly hurt while walking offstage.
This is the second time Styles has been injured by something during his “Love On Tour” performance. Last year, he got hit in the eye with a Skittles candy that was thrown at him, prompting a response from Skittles through an advertisement in the Los Angeles Times, urging people not to throw candy.
Before this incident in July, footage captured the moment when Harry Styles was hit by an object thrown by a fan during his “Love On Tour” concert in Vienna, Austria. Just a month before that, he was hit on stage with a bouquet of flowers.
Singers Bebe Rexha, Ava Max, and Kelsea Ballerini have also experienced similar situations in recent months.
In June, during a music program at the New York City show, someone threw a phone at Rexha, resulting in her wearing an eye patch.
In Los Angeles, Max was slapped by a successful individual during her performance on stage, and Ballerini was hit by an object thrown by the crowd in Idaho.
Although it didn’t seem to make contact with their bodies, Drake expressed his displeasure towards the fan who threw vape at him on July 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
In June, Adele reminded her fans to “show some manners” and criticized this trend.
“Have you noticed how people are forgetting about concert etiquette and throwing things on stage?”
