That awkward moment when you and your ex-girlfriend who you beat up both win an award at the same time…

What started out as an incredible moment for one music fan on last night’s BET Awards soon turned into an awkward and embarrassing award gaffe involving Chris Brown and Rihanna.

When Tiffany Green took the stage to present the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award, she first announced that the winner was Brown for “Look At Me Now.” Just a moment later she corrected herself and stated that the real winner was Rihanna for “What’s My Name.” Adding the confusion, Drake then hit the stage to claim the award for himself.
