The security team hired to protect Migos and Cardi B at last year’s Met Gala in New York is off the hook for an incident involving an overzealous fan.

As you may remember, an autograph hound by the name of Giovanni Arnold ended up on a stretcher after doing entirely too much in his efforts to score an autograph from the “Motorsport” rappers.

As a result of the incident—which occurred right outside of The Mark Hotel—rumors surfaced that Arnold was suing Migos and Cardi for the assault, and that their security teams could face assault charges for the scuffle.

However, it appears that all is well in the world, as TMZ reports that no charges will be filed despite claims that Arnold suffered face, neck, body, and back injuries.

But this isn’t the only good news for Bardi this week, as we learned on Wednesday that she’ll be making her feature film debut alongside KeKe Palmer and Jennifer Lopez in the savvy stripper flick Hustlers.

Wow, we’ve got some really enlightened commenters here! I must have forgotten that rich white people only do good things, like tax evasion (a victimless crime - except for the millions of people who suffer under heavy tax burdens that don’t quite cover our infrastructure needs), paying people starvation wages (another victimless crime, as the millions and millions of low-wage jobs should really be filled with teens still in school - I don’t know why the millions of outcasts who can’t find jobs somewhere else don’t just go find jobs somewhere else!), and buying our government (really, liberty should only be for the very few who can afford to throw millions at greedy, soulless politicians in exchange for writing laws that make them billions - why didn’t we, the poor people think of that???).  But security guards doing their job by protecting their bosses are animals, aren’t they???
