Cardi B doesn't play the radio
Cardi B had her second on-stage freakout in the last few weeks, but where her dressing down a Cincinnati DJ made her look like a bully, this latest show-stopping rant makes her look like a boss.
In short, someone at a show in the Dominican Republic was acting a fool, flinging champagne onto Cardi and her crew. After one too many splashes, Cardi confronted the champagne chucker and challenged him to a fight.
“If you can throw this m*therfucking champagne, then we can throw these motherf*cking hands,” she said from the stage. “I don’t give a f*ck. I don’t give a f*ck, my n*gga. I don’t give a f*ck what you paid for, n*gga. You can see me in New York. I don’t care. It’s not that serious. But you not gonna be disrespecting my f*cking people.”
Cardi continued her rant as it seemed like the offender was being ushered away from the stage.
“N*gga, ain’t no thirsty,” she said. “Ain’t no motherf*cking Michael Jackson. The f*ck? Stupid.”
The response to Cardi’s latest rant was much more positive than her last one, probably because this time Bardi was in the right.
When she dissed a DJ on stage last week by calling him “dumb,” the reaction from fans and the DJ in question was harsh.
First, the DJ explained how they came to be at odds.
“As I’m doing the show, Cardi B is trying to perform or whatever but she can’t get into it,” DJ Fresh said of the incident in a series of Instagram videos. “The manager then tells me to stop the music, so I stop the record immediately. She look back at me like ‘Are you dumb?’ She asked me ‘Are you dumb?’ I’m pointing at the manager like ‘he told me to cut it.’”
Fresh wasn’t cool with her reaction, and he let it be known all over social media, with fans joining in the wave to hold their fave accountable.
“She disrespected me in my city,” he said. “And me as a DJ, I feel like if we playing your records and we doing this stuff for you…it was the DJs that were the reason you got the number one record in the country. So, I feel like disrespecting a DJ for your ill-prepared and ill-mannered management, that was kind of sideways and I wasn’t really feeling it.”
“Granted you’re new to being number one and being on top,” he added. “But artist to DJ etiquette you gotta come better.”
Fresh did put forward an idea about how the pair could clear the air. “I feel like your management should have came to you and let you know that it was their fault and not mine,” he said. “Continued success to you and what you’re doing. But you got to give respect to get it.”
Cardi has yet to publicly apologize for the incident.

Watch the clip up top. What do you think? Does Cardi still get down like that even after getting her “Bodak Yellow” money? Was she right to stop the set or should performers be better able to keep it moving through distractions? Who throws champagne, honestly?
