JAY-Z jokingly interrupted KANYE WEST during his acceptance speech at the 2012 BET Awards…
In case you don’t get it, the moment was actually a funny spoof of Kanye’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for “Best Female Video” at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, which earned the rapper some very harsh criticism from his fellow celebrities… and even from President Barack Obama himself.
During the notorious outburst, Kanye famously said:
“Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you… and I’mma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!”
At the 2012 BET Awards, a similar scene went down.
After winning “Video of the Year” over Beyonce and Usher, the “Watch The Throne” duo took the stage and took turns saying their acceptance speeches. However, when it was Kanye’s turn, Jay-Z hilariously stepped in and said:
“Excuse me, Kanye, I’m gonna let you continue, but…”
Surprisingly, West good-naturedly laughed it off, and the crowd—which included his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian—went wild.
