Cardi B’s first Met Gala went splendidly for her, but unfortunately, not for a pushy fan who TMZ reports fell victim to a beat down from her security team after ignoring her wishes not to sign an autograph.
TMZ obtained two videos connected to the incident where Cardi leaves a post-Met Gala event around 2 a.m. In the first clip, she seems visibly irritated by something (or someone, rather) and can be heard saying, “I will smack the sh** out of you.” The caption on the video, presumably taken by another bystanding fan, reads, “YESSS CARDI! YOU B**CH HIM OUT!!!!!!”
The identities of the individuals in the next part of the clip is unclear, however, viewers can blatantly see a group of people pummeling someone on the ground. According to the site, the fan told Cardi he’s an “autograph hound” despite her refusing the autograph, and told responding police officers who were called to the scene that three security guards pushed him to the ground and beat him.
A second video shows the alleged victim being transported in the back of an ambulance as paramedics surround him. He was reportedly sent to the hospital for neck and back pain treatment as a result of the incident. In the meantime, TMZ reports, NYPD will be investigating the situation.
