Cardi B faces possible battery charges after mic throw incident during Las Vegas concert

Cardi B could potentially face battery charges after throwing a microphone at a concertgoer who tossed a drink at her during a performance in Las Vegas, US.

The incident, caught on video, has led to a police report. Other musicians have also faced similar incidents of objects being thrown at them during performances.



LAS VEGAS, UNITED STATES: After Cardi B threw a microphone at a concertgoer who hurled a drink at her during a performance at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas over the weekend, she could now reportedly be charged with battery.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirms to local media PEOPLE that an individual reported a battery on Sunday (30 July) after “she was struck by an item that was thrown from the stage” during a concert “located in the 3500 block of Las Vegas Boulevard” the day before.

TMZ reported that the woman who reported the altercation stood next to the woman who threw the drink, though she claims the microphone hit her as well.

In a now-viral video of the incident, Cardi, 30, can be seen wearing an orange dress during the performance and looking surprised when a drink is thrown in her direction while she performed her hit “Bodak Yellow” on 29 July.

In response, Cardi threw her microphone at the front-row attendee, whom security seemingly escorted away.

After the incident, she retweeted a different video angle of the microphone throw, which shows a clearer view of the fan attempting to empty their cup at Cardi, who reportedly continued her performance after the mic toss.

According to another clip from the concert, Cardi and her DJ asked the audience to “splash her down” — just not on her face.

“Give me some water,” the rapper told crew members, as her DJ instructed the crowd to “splash her down.””Splash me down,” said Cardi, and fans obliged, throwing water toward the performer.

“That s— feel good. Put that s— in my p—-y, bitch. Come on.”It’s unclear whether the direction was given to the crowd before or after the rapper appeared surprised when a drink was thrown in her direction as she performed.

At Drai’s Beachclub the night before, Cardi also reportedly threw her microphone toward a DJ who seemingly was cutting off her songs early during another performance, per a TikTok.

Netizens criticize Cardi for lip-syncing

One clip from the show seems to find Cardi explaining the incident at the end of the show. “I don’t wanna look that ghetto, bitch. I said splash my p—-y, not my face, bitch,” she said in the video.

Prior to this, some netizens had already accused Cardi of lip-syncing. Others pointed out that during the performance, Cardi B inadvertently tossed her microphone, unaware that the vocal track would continue.

The question arises: why opt for lip-syncing when vocal prowess has never been her forte?

The incident comes as musicians have been speaking out about thrown objects at concerts after Bebe Rexha was seriously hurt in New York City when a fan threw a cell phone at her face in June. He was later arrested.

Since the incident, videos of Harry Styles, Kelsea Ballerini, Lil Nas X, Drake, Pink, and more getting hit with items surfaced online.
