Everything seemed to be running smoothly at Sunday’s BET Awards. That is, until it came time to present the Viewer’s Choice Award. Tiffany Green, a fan who was chosen to present the award, apparently got mixed signals from a tablet and a teleprompter. Green read from the tablet first, announcing Chris Brown as the winner. Then, she read from the teleprompter, which had a different name, Rihanna.
Drake came to the stage and accepted for Rihanna, remarking, “Well, this is awkward.”
BET programming executive Stephen Hill later clarified that Brown was indeed the winner, taking full blame for the mix-up, tweeting, “That BET Awards Viewer’s Choice mix-up was due to human error. And I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected.”
