This summer we have seen a trend of singers and musicians being assaulted while performing on stage including Bebe Rexha, Ava Max, Drake and Harry Styles. It’s clearly gross to witness public figures turned into fodder for jokes and harassment when they are entertaining us.
Cardi B became the latest target of the trend when during a performance at Las Vegas, a fan threw a drink on the singer. However, the rapper was quick to respond, throwing her much right back at the assaulter.
When the incident went viral on social media, fans were quick to defend the ‘WAP’ singer, calling out the people who refuse to recognise that performers are not spectacles to be made fun of, and no woman should be assaulted when they’re doing their job.
“Exactly it’s about time a performer retaliated to this ‘trend'”, a user wrote.
Grammy winning singer Adele recently slammed concert-goers for throwing things at singers, threatening to respond back brutally if someone assaulted her while she was singing on stage.
“Have you noticed how people are like, forgetting f****** show etiquette at the moment? People just throwing s*** on stage, have you seen them?” Adele was seen speaking in a fan-recorded video.
“I f****** dare you. Dare you to throw something at me and I’ll f*****g kill you.”
