News broke on Tuesday (May 8) morning that Cardi B's crew allegedly beating up an overzealous fan outside of the Met Gala

The rapper was reportedly leaving a post-Gala event when the guy insisted that Cardi give him her autograph, which she declined. Shortly afterward, three men from Cardi's team allegedly started kicking and punching the fan. TMZ has video of the assault. "In this video TMZ obtained, you can see Cardi tells the fan, no ... but he persists saying, 'I'm an autograph hound.' The next thing you see is a bunch of guys stomping someone on the ground," the outlet reports.

By the time authorities arrived, Cardi and her team had already left. The fan was later taken to the hospital to be treated for neck and back pain. According to reports, NYPD is now investigating the incident. However, Cardi decided to go on social media to address the altercation. In a tweet that has since been deleted, the rapper said that she takes pictures with fans all the time, but she also needs to be careful about getting close to some people because of her pregnancy.

"If you check my tag pics, I take a lot of pics with fans," the artist started her message. "Some people are not fans & sometimes I don’t want no pics and I simply don’t want people too close cause of [my pregnancy]. I don’t know what are people’s intentions sooo I be careful. Why can’t people respect that?"
