Because within seconds of the story of the scandalous scuffle between nemesis female New York City rappers Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, all dressed up and at an A-list hip New York Fashion Week party at the Plaza Hotel, that the two would mix it up is bizarre and disquieting but low-hanging fruit ripe for memes.
It’s reported both female MCs were at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party when, TMZ reported, “Nicki was with her crew at a table, when Cardi ‘aggressively approached the table,'” according to eyewitnesses.
Cardi allegedly lunged toward Minaj and was stopped by security and then pulled off a red platform shoe and threw it at Minaj, missing her.
Page Six meanwhile who was there said it was a lot more than a shoe toss.
“There was a major scuffle between rival rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj at the swanky Harper’s Bazaar Icons fashion week bash at the Plaza Friday night. The wild skirmish included hair-pulling and shoe throwing” with fistfuls of hair on the floor. Security jumped right in to prevent the thing from escalating.

“It was bad,” a source told Page Six: “They were separated by security, but Cardi was still trying to get at her. She took of a giant red shoe and threw it at Nicki — who was being blocked up against a wall by huge security guard.”
Cardi was then led into another room while Nicki was held back with security in front of her and it’s reported “she has a knot on her forehead from getting hit.”
And just seconds after the melee was reported, the memes popped up as if birthed by rabbits and well, because memes are fun, and when done well are even more fun, here’s a few to enjoy.
Hey at least no one got hurt. But Minaj got in a last troll fling before riding off.
