Out Of Pocket: Beyonce Mad At Mindless Behavior’s Lauryn Hill Joke Changing Her Acceptance Speech To Honor Great [Video]

Beyonce was not happy at the kids’ joke last night:

Beyonce wasn’t laughing when a boy band DISSED Lauryn Hill at last night’s BET Awards … in fact, Bey was so upset, she changed her acceptance speech (on the fly) to HONOR the former Fugee.

So let’s start with The Diss — Comedian Mike Epps and the group Mindless Behavior were co-presenting the award for Best R&B Artist when Mike jokingly tried to sing.

One of the members of the group quipped, “You sing BAD … like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad.”

The diss drew gasps from the crowd … and pissed off Beyonce, who ultimately WON the award that was being presented.

But TMZ has learned … B was so upset, she scrapped the speech she had prepared and defended Lauryn’s honor instead … saying, “I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige.”

When B walked off stage, there was a woman waiting for her — possibly a BET handler — and B began to vent about the insult, saying the Lauryn Hill diss was “disrespectful” and “not cool.”

The woman complimented Beyonce for adding Lauryn Hill’s name to her acceptance speech … to which Beyonce replied, “I just felt [the diss] was wrong.”

We called Beyonce’s rep for comment — so far, no word back.

Yeah, the joke was tasteless straight up.

If you didn’t see the video, turn the page and peep.
