Cardi B, the Grammy-winning rap sensation, displayed her fiery spirit at a recent concert in Las Vegas. During her outdoor set at Drai’s Beachclub, the 30-year-old artist was met with an unexpected challenge when a concertgoer hurled a drink at her mid-performance.

However, instead of backing down, Cardi responded in kind by tossing her microphone back at the perpetrator.

In a now-viral video capturing the incident, Cardi can be seen wearing an eye-catching orange dress while energetically performing her hit track “Bodak Yellow.” The moment the drink was flung towards her, she appeared taken aback. Nevertheless, true to her fierce nature, Cardi took aim and retaliated against the unruly individual in the front row.

Security quickly stepped in to handle the situation, escorting the unruly attendee away from the scene. Despite the brief disruption, Cardi resumed her performance, demonstrating her professionalism and determination to entertain her fans.

This is not the first time Cardi B has reacted strongly to disruptions during her shows. On a previous night at Drai’s Beachclub, she reportedly hurled her microphone toward a DJ who was prematurely cutting off her songs. The incident was captured and shared on TikTok, further solidifying her reputation for taking charge of her performances.

Sadly, Cardi is not alone in facing such challenges during concerts. Several other prominent artists have also experienced similar disruptions this year. The list includes Harry Styles, Bebe Rexha, Drake, Kelsea Ballerini, Steve Lacy, Kid Cudi, and Pink, all of whom have encountered items being thrown at them while performing.

Kelsea Ballerini had a similar encounter during a show in Boise, Idaho, when an object was thrown and hit her in the face. As for Pink, she had to confront the emotional distress of a fan throwing a bag containing their deceased mother’s ashes onto her stage.

The rise in such incidents has become a cause for concern in the music industry. Adele, during her Weekends with Adele show at The Colosseum in Las Vegas, took a moment to address the issue. The 35-year-old singer voiced her frustration with concertgoers forgetting show etiquette and throwing objects on stage. She sternly warned the audience against such behavior, emphasizing the importance of respecting performers and their art.

Concert disruptions not only endanger the safety of the artists but also dampen the overall concert experience for the fans. Music lovers and industry insiders alike are calling for increased security measures and stricter regulations at venues to prevent such incidents in the future.
