The Microphone Cardi B Threw At A Fan Has Sparked A Massive eBay Bidding War

Over the past year or so, there’s been a pretty noticeable spike in the number of people who’ve failed to ward off the intrusive thoughts that convinced them it would be a good idea to throw something at a musician while they’re performing.

Drake seemed to enjoy being at the receiving end of a massive bra that was thrown on stage, but Bebe Rexha ended up in the hospital after getting drilled by a cellphone and Pink wasn’t really sure what to do after a fan tossed a bag of their mother’s ashes her way.

Things took an interesting twist last weekend when Cardi B was performing at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas, as a concertgoer who made the decision to toss a drink at the “Bodak Yellow” rapper found themselves in the path of the microphone she chucked at them in retaliation.

That piece of equipment reportedly hit two different people, and one of them opted to file a battery charge against Cardi B in the wake of the incident.

Now, an enterprising contractor who was involved with the show in question has pounced on a golden opportunity.

According to Insider, Scott Fisher—the owner of The Wave, the audio company that supplied the microphone and other equipment for the Cardi B show—listed the projectile on eBay shortly after it ended up back in his possession.

The mic (a Shure Axient) retails for around $1,800, but thanks to Cardi B, the one in his possession has sparked a bidding war that’s seen the price skyrocket to $99,900 as of this writing (the auction will officially end on August 8th).

It’s worth noting Fisher will use the profits for a good cause, as he’s pledged to split the proceed between two charities: Friendship Circle Las Vegas (a volunteer program that connects young adults with people with special needs) and the Wounded Warrior Project.
