As shown in the video below, Tiffany Green, a Nicki Minaj’s fan from Flat Rock, Michigan who was chosen to present the award for the 2011 BET Viewers’ Choice Award had a mixed-up call.

First, she said “Chris Brown, Look At Me Now” but immediately corrected herself, “I’m sorry, It’s Rihanna – What’s My Name”, with the singer not present on the show.

Drizzy Drake, the Canadian rapper who was featured on the song went on stage to accept the award, but show host Terrence Jenkins suddenly announced that he was the real winner.

“Well, this is awkward…” Drake said on the beginning of his speech and later thanked Rihanna for the opportunity given to him, as he was earlier congratulated by Terrence.

Nevertheless, show host Kevin Hart announced the show ended that Chris Brown was the real winner, which means that Tiffany Green was correct on her first announcement.

Later, Tiffany Green used her Twitter account to voice out her emotion and accused BET of setting her up on purpose, and blamed the tablet that she claimed to have confusing results.

It did not take long for the issue to go viral and Tiffany Green became a Twitter trend, but BET Executive Stephen Hill also used Twitter to apologize for the mix-up and confusion.

“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.” Hill tweeted.

Incidentally, Chris Brown led the 2011 BET Awards winners and won five awards including the controversial Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award.
