When Migos rapper Offset crashed estranged wife Cardi B’s performance at Rolling Loud on Saturday, it was clear that she wasn’t the only who wasn’t feeling it. A vast number of people on social media were quite vocal about the ways in which his decision to bum-rush her show, in front of thousands, in the hopes that it would coax her into taking him back, was manipulative behavior. And saying, “I just want to tell you I’m sorry, bruh” on stage, well, that didn’t go over well either. He probably should have stuck with his first gesture, which was to publicly apologize for “entertaining” foolishness that ruined his marriage:
“I only got one birthday wish, and that’s to get my wife back,” he said on Friday, on his birthday. “Cardi, we’re going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologize to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you look crazy.”
Truthfully, grand gestures done to encourage a woman to take back a two-timing man tend to only be cute in movies. In the real world, they’re super uncomfortable to be a part of and to watch from the outside. Plus, nothing really melts the heart of a woman better than seeing an actual change and effort from a man, not just talk of it. But in Offset’s defense, he’s not the first to try it. Look below, and hit the flip to see 10 other cringe-worthy grandiose gestures made by some literally sorry men.
Who could forget the time Chris Brown tried to force his way back into Karrueche’s heart — and her car? If following her to the car waiting for her wasn’t bad enough, nothing could top him telling her friend to “move to the back before I move you,” in an effort to sit right next to his ex and try and win her back. Not only were his efforts creepy, they were downright scary. Oh yeah, they didn’t work.
