The Cardi B show had to be suspended, after police confirmed that the threat of the terrorist attack on the concert could not be verified, although the investigation was still active.
“Cardi B is a star of the Hip Hop genre, is an authentic person, who says what he feels and feels what he says and it is very unfortunate that they are threatening her,” said the congressman.
“The authorities must do everything possible to arrest them and bring them to justice,” Espaillat added.
It is recalled that during a concert in France by the American singer Ariana Grande, there was another terrorist attack resulting in numerous deaths and injuries.
The Cardi B concert was scheduled for July 31 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The singer said in her social media accounts that she had decided to cancel the presentation, because the safety of the public and hers were threatened.
“Dear people of Indiana, I’m very sorry for today,” Cardi B tweeted at night.
“I would like to let you know that I was in the place. I was even rehearsing a new movement that I was excited to do in my show. Unfortunately, there was a security threat that is currently under investigation at this time. My security and your security, first, ”wrote the rapper.

The record label of the artist “Atlantic Records” said that due to a security threat and security concerns at the show that night, management has advised that the show be postponed, adding that the threats were currently under investigation.
The show was rescheduled for September 11.
Cardi B, responded to social media speculation about the reason for the cancellation, in which a user said it was because she was very drunk and could not stand on the platform.
“Me at 4:26 pm at the place rehearsing. This was at 5:36 pm. I wonder what time I got drunk? “She captioned in one of the rehearsal images.
