“Fan or not you talk about my publicist/friend you can eat a d*ck PERIOD.”
Strong words from Cardi B after she caught wind of fans attacking her public relations representative, Patientce Foster, for allowing the rapper’s husband, Offset (born Kiari Cephus), to crash her historic Rolling Loud performance over the weekend.
Bardi already made headlines for taking to social media to urge fans not to lend disparaging remarks to Cephus for his attempts to win back her love (click here to read more), now – as social media investigators release the “hounds” to find out who is to blame for the incident – they’ve turned their sights to her PR rep.
The move generated a fierce clap back from the rapstress. Read the latest in the “who dun it” hoopla inside:
Fans slammed Rolling Loud’s organizers for even allowing Offset to enter the stage during B’s performance. Using the now deleted tweet below as evidence the event coordinators were aware of the shenanigans…
…some began assuming Rolling Loud was very much in on the stunt. The event’s co-founder, Tariq Cherif, crafted a lengthy statement to combat the claims and indicated:
“Headliners and their teams have full control of the stage and who is allowed on it during their set at Rolling Loud,” said co-founder Cherif . “The festival does not interfere with or influence a headliner’s set list. We have never and will never do anything to change a headliner’s set. We were tipped off that something was going to happen, but had nothing to do with the organization or execution of it. Rolling Loud is proud to provide the platform for a queen like Cardi B to absolutely slay her performance. Despite the stunt, she performed hit after hit and electrified the crowd with her talent, energy, choreography, and set design. Cardi B proved herself as a top tier headliner last night, and that should be the story. We look forward to continued business with her in the future.”
Cherif continued to assert while Rolling Loud was aware of the possibility of surprise guests, they did not know who the guests would be. He also addressed the deletion of the tweet seen above:
“We were tipped off that Cardi was going to have multiple surprise guests, corroborated by what she said in her IG Live. One of specific guests we were told about didn’t end up showing up so we deleted the tweet, which is standard for us when things change as the night goes on,” he notes. “For example, there’s an earlier tweet about a special surprise guest for Tyga’s set that we also deleted upon learning that it wasn’t happening. Deleting old tweets with bad intel isn’t usually alarming but once we realized that we were getting dragged for the surprise interruption, we panicked and deleted the tweet bc we knew it was going to make things look worse. In hindsight, deleting those tweets actually made us look worse. We recognize that it was a poor decision.“
With Rolling Loud axed from the list of suspects, fans turned their attention to Foster (Cardi’s PR rep) after a video surfaced of her escorting Offset to the stage’s entrance.
In response to the melee, Foster took to IG to defend her “good intentions”:
Cardi B followed up to slam anyone “talking sh*t” about Foster:
