Cardi B is the latest celebrity to be hit by a flying projectile while performing on stage – and she fought back.
The musician, 30, took to the stage at an outdoor concert recently where she belted out some of her back catalogue of hits, from WAP to I Like It.
But she fell victim to a rising trend which sees audience members launch items on stage to hit whoever they came to see – something that left Bebe Rexha battered and bruised, and Harry Styles doubled over in pain.
In Cardi’s case, a fan right at the front of the crowd threw a beer at her while she was performing, which hit her – and after a short, shocked pause, Cardi hit back.
She absolutely hurled the microphone into the crowd, and appeared visibly shaken and furious as the backing track continued on without her.
Security can be seen reacting as Cardi attempted to regain her composure on stage, flicking her long dark hair off her face, looking – naturally – a bit stressed.
A clip of the shocking moment has made its way around social media, with fans generally supportive of Cardi’s reaction.
One said it was ‘about time a performer retaliated to this “trend”.’
‘Maybe now these people will stop throwing things at artists,’ another suggested.
‘People seriously need to stop throwing stuff on stage at celebs.’ one agreed.
It comes after multiple celebrities from Drake to il Nas X to Taylor Swift were targeting by flying projectiles coming from the crowd.
I’m Good singer Bebe was hit with a mobile phone in the face while performing in New York last month, resulting in her grabbing her face in pain and falling to the ground.
She was unable to return to the stage and was escorted out of the venue, later sharing photographs on Instagram of her black eye and a cut below her eyebrow.
Despite the injury Bebe continued on her tour, saying ‘‘Although the show ended in an unfortunate way it was still an amazing show in my hometown. Thank you so Much New York. I love You. The Tour must go on!!!’
