Rapper Cardi B’s thrown microphone, which targeted a fan during a recent concert, has been sold on eBay for nearly $100,000.
The microphone gained significant attention through an online auction due to its connection to a highly publicized incident. The incident involved Cardi B hurling the mic and sparked discussions about fan conduct at live shows, even leading to a brief police inquiry.
The microphone, owned by an audio production company named The Wave based in Las Vegas, was auctioned on eBay to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project and a local charity called Friendship Circle, assisting children with special needs.
The auction concluded with an impressive final bid of $99,900, contributing substantially to these causes.
Despite the microphone being thrown with force, it remains functional according to Fisher, a representative of the audio company.
Interestingly, this auction and the microphone sale occurred shortly after Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almánzar, was legally cleared in Las Vegas. An investigation into the incident, where she threw the microphone into the crowd after being splashed with liquid, concluded with no charges filed against her.
A clip from the incident showed the fan who apparently threw the drink apologizing after the microphone toss. Another fan even claimed on social media that they were hit by the microphone.
