Cardi B has made headlines for throwing her mic at a fan that splashed her with water, but apparently, there’s more to the story.

The “WAP” rapper performed at an outdoor daytime party at Drai’s Nightclub on Saturday (July 29), with footage from the event showing Bardi, in the midst of performing “Bodak Yellow,” getting soaked with water from a fan in the crowd.

In response, Cardi threw her microphone at the offender and was seen saying something along the lines of “jealous-ass bitch!” as the drink-tosser was escorted off the premises.

Now it seems the fan that tossed the drink was merely following orders, with TMZreporting that right before the viral moment, Cardi asked fans to “splash” her “pussy” with water.

Additional scenes captured during Cardi’s performance show her demanding the crowd to throw water on her in between songs since it was 105° that day.

Cardi’s DJ additionally encouraged the crowd to splash her, and at one point the Bronx-bred rapper even bent over, and directed fans toward one particular area that needed hydration.

Additionally, Cardi’s projectile microphone didn’t even hit the right person, with an innocent fan taking a bruising as a result of the rapper’s toss.

“When I’m the one who gets smoked by the microphone but didn’t throw the drink,” the fan, who goes by @paxybabyy, wrote on TikTok. “I’m bruised and sore.”

Regardless of the bad press, Cardi has been heavily capitalizing off the success of her new single “Jealousy” with her husband Offset.

The track’s music video, which was inspired by the cult classic film Baby Boy and directed by Offset himself, is set in South Central L.A. and shows the married couple fussing and fighting just like Jody (Tyrese Gibson) and Yvette (Taraji P. Henson) did in the aforementioned film.

The track itself was produced by Boi-1da, OZ and Jahaan Sweet, and samples Three 6 Mafia’s 2000 record “Jealous Ass Bitches.” It’ll appear on Offset’s forthcoming solo album, which will also feature heavy-hitters like FutureTravis ScottLattoChloe Bailey and TakeOff.
