Awkward Alert: Drake Accepts BET Award Meant For Chris Brown on Rihanna’s Behalf
Last night at the BET Awards, some lucky fans were chosen to present the viewer’s choice award. Some serious awkwardness transpired.
Not only did the wrong person get it, the celebrities involved happened to be Chris Brown and Rihanna, with Drake thrown in no less.
Brown owned the BET Awards, taking home four big honors, one of which being the viewer’s choice award. But it wasn’t given to him initially …

The lucky fan read the winner as “Chris Brown,” only to recant it and say, “I’m sorry, the winner is Rihanna.” The audience grumbled.
THEN, despite the fact that Rihanna’s name appeared on screen one of the presenters chimed in again to award the honor to … Drake.
Drake then appeared on stage to collect his trophy, giving a short speech and describing the whole thing as awkward. To say the least.
Presumably, at some point later, Brown was credited with the actual award … but not before the entire process was thoroughly discredited.
