Beyonce wasn’t laughing when presenters joked about Lauryn Hill at the BET Awards.

At the award ceremony, comedian Mike Epps and the group Mindless Behavior were co-presenting the aware for Best R&B Artist when Epps began to sing.

One of the group members responded: “You sing bad … like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad.”

The diss made Beyonce angry. When the singer won the award, she tossed her original acceptance speech and instead defended Lauryn Hill, saying: ”I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige.”

When Beyonce left the stage, she spoke to a woman, saying that the Lauryn Hill insult was “disrespectful and not cool.”

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