After sharing a rather emotional apology clip onto his Instagram account dedicated to his wife following cheating allegations, Offset decided to take it up a notch and surprise Cardi mid performance on stage in Los Angeles with a lavish floral arrangement.
Romantic right? Well no, especially based on Cardi B’s reaction in which she seemed rather unimpressed with his impromptu onstage ambush during her performance at the Rolling Loud Festival.
In actual fact some Twitter users have even dubbed the moment as an ‘epic fail’, one user even pointed out that it was “disrespectful of Offset to show just show up…”
So fuckin disrespectful of offset to just show up at @iamcardib's show and I hope she fired the crew who let him do it— Jc Thrall (@JcThrall76) December 17, 2018

Following the onstage interruption the first time mom remained quite steadfast in her decision to not take her husband back even when the crowd overwhelmed her with ‘take him back’ cheers.
“All of my wrongs have been made public, I figure It’s only right that my apologies are made public too. A nigga was just trying .....Thank god I ain’t got no balloons sheeesh,” tweeted Offset following the failed apology. [sic]

Many of Cardi’s fans, however, pointed out how it was quite convenient for Offset to cheat and because he was ‘caught’ he was now using the “public forum to bully Cardi B into taking him back… is so wrong and so manipulative”, tweeted one user.
The way Offset is using the public forum to bully Cardi B into taking him back genuinely makes me so fucking mad, you can dislike Cardi all you want but that shit is so wrong and so manipulative— g (@geenasmoments) December 17, 2018
All the guys praising this Offset apology and all the ladies wanting Cardi B to forgive him could live toxically ever afterpic.twitter.com/zYNiUYwPGY— kenz (@Bokenza1) December 17, 2018
I understand his desire to work it out. He proposed to her this way. Why not go back to where it all “started”? He meant well. But, given this moment in @iamcardib’s career and her ascension in the music industry, it was an #epicfail. Give @OffsetYRN a break.— Jules Okafor, JD (@julesmgmt) December 17, 2018
Prior to the on-stage ambush Cardi B came to her husband’s defense and pleaded with fans to stop bashing him.
“I just don’t like that bashing online thing,” said Cardi in a video posted onto IG.
While the duo who welcomed their first child together earlier this year remain public figures that have without a doubted gained much of their fame from their incredible music careers amongst other things, it is important to also note that cheating should never be condoned.
