Cardi B threw her microphone at a concertgoer after they threw their drink at her on Saturday in Las Vegas.
She did not do Like it.
Cardi B threw her microphone at an unruly concertgoer who launched a drink at the rapper during one performance in Las Vegas on Saturdayand became the latest artist to have an object thrown at them while on stage.
The New York native had been performing “Bodak Yellow” at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas when a fan raised a white, decorated cup and threw liquid in the 30-year-old rapper’s direction.
The rapper, at first startled and visibly incredulous, transformed into a fastball-throwing southpaw and sent the microphone towards the woman.
Security quickly intervened as Cardi B shouted from the stage before the microphone was returned to her and she resumed her show, according to a video shared on Cardi B’s social media page.
It is not immediately known whether charges have been brought against the concert-goer.
The night before, the rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar Cephus, had thrown a microphone at the DJ at Drai’s nightclub after she kept getting cut off during her performance, according to a TikTok video.
The video of Cardi B’s microphone throw has been generated above 25 million views on Twitter as they threw their support behind the “I Like It” hitmaker.
“Now they, of all celebs, know not to try it with Cardi B. Cardi was locked in!!!!” said one TikTok commenter.
“I need to see all the angles. Soooo she walked around and figured it out,” read another comment.
“Love her lol that’s exactly how she should have reacted,” wrote a third.
Cardi B is the latest performer to be beaten on stage over the past few months, with other musicians being hit with phones, sex toys and human remains.
Last month, Bebe Rexha was hit by a phone during a concert in NYC on June 18.
The Grammy-nominated singer was left with a black eye and stitches after the attack, while accused thrower Nicolas Malvagna was arrested for assault, aggravated harassment, attempted assault and harassment.
Singer Pink was “mortified” when a fan threw their mother’s ashes on stage at the British Summer Time festival.
Earlier this month Lil Nas X had a sex toy thrown at him on him while he was performing a set at European Lollapalooza in Sweden.
