During Sundays BET Awards, Mindless Behavior’s Ray-Ray “read” a joke from the teleprompter. I wrote “read” because the only people who freestyle at award shows are comedians. Mike Epps was doing a Jodeci impression. of course he sounded crazy. Ray Ray told him that his singing was bad. ‘You sing bad…like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant BAD‘. Social media went into a frenzy about how the joke was in poor taste. They presented an award to Beyonce who immediately got on stage and paid homage to Lauryn Hill.
On Monday, Ray-Ray called in to 106 & Park to apologize for the remark. He said:-
I want to apologize about the Lauryn Hill joke… I didn’t mean no harm by it. I hope everyone can forgive me. It was like a big thing on Twitter and everything, so I truly apologize. I respect Lauryn Hill and all of them like that.
So BET writes the joke and then Ray-Ray calls in to BET to apologize for the joke? Oh, ok. What are your thoughts? Comment below! By the way, if you would like to see Mindless Behavior in Philly this Friday July 6th text “MB” to 80185 for your last chance tickets!
