'It’s you baby': Giveon trolled for blaming BET after technical issues during his performance
Giveon performed at the 2022 BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on June 26, Sunday, and ended up dealing with technical issues. Surprisingly, he blamed BET for it. The American singer performed shortened versions of his Billboard Hot 100 top 20 hits 'Heartbreak Anniversary,' 'For Tonight' and 'Lie Again'. However, his performance was hindered by some technical issues which forced the singer to switch microphones before singing the latter song.
Giveon was quick to call out BET on his official Twitter account saying, "Not @BET sabotaging my mic …… @LilNasX I get it!!!!" He attacked BET for the issue and blamed them for deliberately sabotaging his performance. Technical issues are not uncommon but make up for some intriguing headlines as and when they happen, and this time, it happened to the 27-year-old singer who rose to fame in 2020 when Drake released 'Chicago Freestyle' featuring his vocals.
The singer also mentioned Lil Nas X who has his own beef going on with BET. Nas X was pissed off when he didn't receive a single nomination and Jack Harlow was nominated instead despite the fact that their track 'Industry Baby' was Harlow's biggest track of the year. In a series of tweets, the singer went on to diss BET and even teased a track that explicitly chanted 'F*CK BET'. The rapper, in the song, said, "Nas X raps, “F**k BET, f**k BET/Lick it on up, slurp it/ Make it sloppy, ok, ok, ok, ok/ Look at how I top shit/I just put like three up in the top 10/And I don’t need nobody/I just need these ccs on my body/Everything I do be tryna run, go make a profit/Read about it.” Despite all this, fans were quick to troll Giveon for his BET performance.
Fans react to Giveon's performance hazard
Some people on the Internet were just not having Giveon's poor performance and the fact that he blamed BET for the same. One user tweeted, "Giveon looking confused at the mic why he sounds so bad. It’s you baby." Another user trolled Giveon for looking at the mic in a weird way saying, "Giveon looking at the mic and the mic looking at him like “don’t blame me” #BETAwards"

One user right away put the blame on Giveon's poor performance and debunked the theory of a dysfunctional mic saying, "Giveon really had the nerve to give the mic a stank look like he isn’t the problem." Another user advised the singer to have some green tea saying, "I can recommend a good honey tea for you giveon, because it for sure ain’t that mic."

The trolling kept on going as one user tweeted, "Giveon looked at his mic like when ur card declines n u start wiping it like it’s gon do sum." Another user compared Giveon's performance to Omarion's performance at the Verzuz battle against Mario saying, "#BETAwards Someone check to see if Omarion touched the mic before Giveon went on. It feels like tampering is possible. This don’t explain the struggle vocals tho."
