On Sunday, June 27, the "WHAT’S POPPIN” rapper arrived at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater dressed in all black and shared a few laughs with culture's elite.
Twitter couldn't help wondering why. Twitter exploded with criticisms of the network for allowing a black rapper to be honored, much like Eminem in 2001 when he was nominated for a BET Award for his "Stan” video featuring Dido.
Harlow, 23, was not able to leave the BET Awards empty handed. However, he smiled as he walked onto the red carpet. He will never forget it, and Twitter will too.
Below are some reactions.
