BET Apologizes About Lil' Wayne Performance: Who Cares?
This update yesterday from BET about the BET Music Awards last week via BlackTwitterati on Twitter: today Drake and BET apologized for the number with Lil' Wayne that included young girls dancing onstage to explicit lyrics as a so-called tribute to Michael Jackson.
Here's part of the statemen from the BET website:
"BET Networks deeply regrets the performance by Young Money at the BET Awards '09 (featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine). Elements of the performance were unplanned and should not have happened," the network said in a statement. "We value and appreciate the feedback from our viewers and have edited Young Money's performance for all BET Awards '09 encore presentations."
My response: Yeah, whatever. Too little, too late. Who let that crap get on stage in the first place?
If BET had announced someone was fired over it, I'd be more interested.
