Cardi B causes a commotion in a shopping mall after refusing to take a selfie with a fan

by Asfa Shakeel

Cardi B caused complete commotion in a shopping mall last month after she ignored a fan who requested for a selfie. A video of her shouting at the fan has since gone viral!

The incident took place on April 25. The fan who asked for a picture talked to The Blast about what went down. She said she and her friends had seen Cardi B leaving the Fendi store at CityCenter. They asked the rapper for a picture and, according to the story, were totally ignored. The woman then got angry and yelled out, “F**k Cardi, you ain’t s**t!”

After they yelled this at the rapper, Cardi B turned to them and explained that she was not happy with how she looked and therefore did not want a picture. The woman and her friends thought that the singer was being fake. From there on, the confrontation escalated.

In the video, the pregnant star is carefully pushed back into the store by her security. Incensed, she can be seen yelling at the fans from behind the glass. The woman responsible for this incident explained that she was being held back by her husband. She can be heard screaming in the video, saying, “If I had heard you say that, I would’ve respected that!”

In the video, the store clerks can be seen closing the store in a hurry, making those who watched the video think the brawl was over Cardi B requesting for a private shopping spree.

The woman, who was identified as Lolita Beckford-Dawkins, later said that as a mother of 5 herself, she had no intention of hitting the pregnant star. Since becoming pregnant, the 25-year-old star has been very vocal about keeping her distance from fans and staying safe.

However, it seems that the rapper’s success has made fans crazier than ever about taking pictures with her and getting her autographs. A few hours after the argument at the store happened, Cardi B had to rush to her fiancé Migos’ aid since he got into a fight with a valet at a hotel.

A week ago, at the Met Gala, a similar incident happened with the famous singer. Cardi B’s security had to step in and protect the rapper from fans after a man tried to grab her. Despite the singer repeatedly saying no, the man persisted, eventually inciting Cardi B’s security to step in and slam him to the ground, TMZ reported.

Cardi B has canceled her upcoming performances now that she is this close to the due date. At the Met Gala, the singer announced that she is having a baby girl, though it may have been by accident.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the rapper said, “Oh, she wants to fight me! My dress weighs about 35 pounds plus baby.”
