Cardi B Becomes 1st Woman to Headline Rolling Loud Festival, Then Rolling Loud Becomes 1st Festival to Allow Its Headliner to Be Harassed on Stage

As the first woman to headline last night’s Rolling Loud Festival, we should be celebrating this pivotal moment in Cardi B’s career. But instead of showering Cardi with praise for her achievement, the Internet is abuzz with this:

During her set, Migos rapper Offset crashed the stage to apologize in front of the world for cheating on his wife. Which in theory sounds like a well intended public display of contrition until you remember: 1. He stole Cardi’s moment. 2. Had he kept that same energy from the jump instead of embarrassing the mother of his child in front of the entire world, he would’ve never needed to apologize in the first place. 3. His overtures were ill-timed, unwanted, selfish, manipulative and the textbook definition of harassment. 4. He stole Cardi’s moment. Which are all points Twitter was quick to point out:

 

But Offset’s behavior aside, how in the hell was this even allowed to happen? We’re talking about the headlining act. There’s no way that Rolling Loud was in on it too, right? Well as our own Monique Judge noted, that appeared to be the case:

But despite Offset’s selfish actions, it’s important to remember that this fiasco involves real people with real feelings going through a very real divorce. Which put Cardi in the uncomfortable position of having to be the bigger person and defend him—as if he didn’t just steal her moment.

I appreciate all the love! But what I need most right now from my fans is support and respect.

None of us have any idea how this ordeal will play out, but I do know that if Offset really loved his wife as much as he claims he does, he wouldn’t have tried to clean up a mess he made on her time. But also of note, Rolling Loud should be ashamed of their role in this debacle. Because they made a conscious decision to sacrifice Cardi’s moment—as well their reputation—in exchange for some retweets and Google search results.
