  1. He shouldn’t get anything because he purposely continued to provoke them and yell that he was going to sue. They should have pay a fine or money to go to a charity of the victims choice but not to him!

  2. well the question also becomes, was it necessary to beat him up? Did he pose a threat to their lives? As far as i remember they were on their way into a car so couldn't they just have driven away/ignoered him?

  3. legally, you can argue that cardi b was acting in jest (just screwing around)… and by that point, the onus is passed onto her entourage who acted on their own volition. again, this operates part in parcel with satire laws… simply wishing that "someone should just die" isn't the same as commanding someone to kill that person. it's essentially why this "jest" precedence exists. there's a fine line between "i wish someone would fuck you up" to "you're going to die by my hands," and even then… "i'm going to beat you slowly to death with my hands, and i'm going to enjoy it."

    as for the legal proceedings, it's going to be up to the court to decide if either offset or cardi b "ACTUALLY INSTRUCTED THEM" to beat up this bystander. even then, they'd only be found liable or criminally accountable for the punch that came BEFORE the actual beating. after that, once again, the onus should be placed on their crew who acted on their own volition.

    either way, the only one who could be going down is the last guy who stomped on him at the end. he clearly acted independently, as cardi b's alleged "instructions" had far surpassed their given time. the man asked to be punched, he was punched. therefore everything that follows is up for question regarding independence and the assailants own personal will.
