The BET Awards proved memorable for so many reasons

Sean “Diddy” Combs fell into a hole onstage at the BET Awards Sunday night, creating a perfect visual metaphor to sum up his disastrous week in the press.

Diddy took a tumble during Bad Boy Record’s 20th anniversary entourage performance featuring Lil’ Kim, Pharrell Williams, and French Montana.

The viral moment was captured on Vine,

The producer quickly returned to his feet to finish the epic old school rap revival that honored the late Notorious B.I.G.. He later joked about the incident on Instagram,

“I was getting so loose I fell! LOL, but really though I busted my ass! … IF YOU EVER FALL DOWN, get your a*s up and FIGHT!!!!!!! But really though, I crack up every time I see this sh*t! It’s like I f*cking disappeared. HAAAAAA!!!! I was scared as f*ck but I had to get up!”

Diddy safely returned to the stage to present music legend Smokey Robinson with a lifetime achievement award for his second meme’able moment of the evening.

 

Diddy is due in court on July 13 to address three counts of assault against UCLA football coach Sal Alosi for which he was detained on Monday, June 22. Let us hope that the courthouse replaces their floorboards before Diddy approaches the bench.
