Cardi B Faces Battery Allegations After Mic Throw Incident During Concert

Updated August 1, 2023 with video of the incident

Cardi B Caught in Battery Case After Microphone Throw at Audience Member

Rapper Cardi B finds herself in the midst of a battery case after an incident at Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas on July 29. The Las Vegas Metro Police Department confirmed that a battery was reported by a woman just one day after the altercation took place.

According to the police statement obtained by Variety, the victim stated that she was attending an event at a property on Las Vegas Boulevard when she was struck by an item thrown from the stage during Cardi B’s concert. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper allegedly retaliated by throwing her microphone after a concertgoer had thrown a drink at her during the show. However, it is not clear if the person who threw the drink and the person who reported getting hit with the microphone are the same individual.

No arrests or citations have been issued at this time, and representatives for Cardi B have not responded to Variety’s request for comment.

Videos of the incident have circulated online, showing the woman who threw the drink immediately apologizing after the act and subsequently being escorted out by security. Cardi B, seemingly upset by the incident, also addressed the offender before leaving the stage.

This incident is part of a concerning trend in the music industry, with recent instances of performers being targeted by audience members. Bebe Rexha was almost knocked out by a fan throwing a cell phone at her head in New York, Harry Styles was hit with an unidentified object in Vienna, and Latto faced a similar projectile in Germany. These incidents have raised concerns about safety and the viral reactions they often generate online.

Authorities are likely to investigate the matter further to ensure the safety of performers and attendees at such events. Variety will continue to report on the story as more information becomes available.
