The latest phenomenon that’s taken over social media is the missing titanic submersible that’s been missing for quite some time. And now Cardi B is clashing billionaire’s stepson attending a Blink-182 concert while his step-dad remains missing.
Rapper Cardi B recently shared her thoughts on the missing Titanic submersible, specifically Brian Szasz, the stepson of passenger onboard billionaire Hamish Harding. The 37-year-old recently took to social media admitting that he attended a Blink-18 concert amid continued efforts to locate and rescue the passengers aboard the Titan submersible.
The original post stated, “My stepdad Hamish is on this submarine lost at sea. I’m devastated but coming to the San Diego show tonight so you guys can give me hope and cheer me up.”

Brian Szasz also noted in a now deleted comment, “It might be distasteful being here but my family would want me to be at the blink-182 show as it’s my favorite band and music helps me in difficult times!”
After social media backlash, the stepson took to Instagram to defend his stance on the matter.
“Yes I went to @blink-182 last night,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories June 20 alongside a photo of him at the venue. “What am I supposed to do sit at home and watch the news? Not sorry this band has helped me through hard times since 1998.” He added on Facebook that his mother Linda “asked me to delete all related posts.”
After the social media uproar, rapper Cardi B chimed in on the situation on how others should be handling their grief.
Cardi B took to her Instagram stories to share her perspective and did not hold back.
People is like, ‘Well what is he supposed to do? ‘Be sad at the house? Is he supposed to go look for himself?’ Yes.”
The rapper also commented on how the situation is sad for many but feels the stepson’s response was not appropriate.
“You supposed to be at the house sad,” she continued. “You supposed to be crying for me. You supposed to be right next to the phone waiting to hear any updates about me.
“Isn’t it sad that you a whole f–king billionaire and nobody gives a f–k about you?”
She concluded her story with, “That’s crazy. I’d rather be broke. I’d rather be broke and poor, but knowing that I’m loved.”
The 21-foot submersible and its five passengers disappeared on June 19th after a mission to explore the wreckage the RMS titanic, which is more than 350 miles off the coast of Canada.
And not too long after Cardi’s stance, Brian gave a response.
The stepson stated, “What a pos trashy celeb. Cardi B trying to get clout off me and my families suffering. I went to a Blink 182 concert for coping rather than sitting at home and watching the news. Shame on you Cardi get some class!”
