Beyonce: PISSED at BET Awards Lauryn Hill Diss

by at . Comments

Boy band Mindless Behavior flat out dissed Lauryn Hill on live TV last night, and the joke apparently upset Beyonce, one of the 2012 BET Award winners, to the point where she changed her acceptance speech to honor The Fugees singer.

The diss went down womedian Mike Epps and the guys from Mindless Behavior were all getting set to co-present the award for Best R&B Artist.

Mike, who can't carry a tune to save his life, jokingly tried to sing. One of the dudes said, "You sing BAD ... like Lauryn Hill's tax accountant bad."

The zinger, a reference to Lauryn Hill's felony tax evasion case, elicited gasps from the crowd, including Beyonce, who was far from pleased.

Winning the award moments later, Bey said, "I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige."

As she walked off stage, she could be heard venting about the insult, saying the dude's Lauryn Hill joke was "disrespectful" and "not cool."

When a BET handler complimented Beyonce's shout-out to the maligned Hill, the "Halo" singer replied, "I just felt [the diss] was wrong."

What do you think of the Lauryn Hill diss?

Dats right B! Tell dem lil 'talentlee', 'homos' who won't even be around or even remembered in 2 yrs! Lauren hill has contributed so much musically n her personal biz should be 'off limits' especiaaly coming from african american artist who have a hard time with imaging in our society should know better! Even if BET wrote it, the group or their mgr should have had enough sense and respect to refuse to say it which I have seen artist do b4! Thx B for being a strong beautiful black woman n stickin up 4 another one, n its refreshing to see women treating each other that way instead of hating as we normally see in our socieety!

im not a fan of MB nor do i like them, but personally i feel this is not their fault B.E.T. gave them a script and all they did was say what they were told, so this is B.E.T. fault

MB was only doing what they were told so people need to go complain to BET and see how that works.
