Samuel L. Jackson attended the BET Awards today to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. However, it wasn’t his award that had everybody talking. Twitter couldn’t stop buzzing about what Jackson did while sitting in the audience.
Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar opened the BET Awards with a surprise performance of “Freedom.” As Bey’s dancers paraded through the audience to the stage, Jackson was caught on camera checking out Beyoncé’s dancers’ butts. Yes, for real!
Fans were quick to notice Jackson was not-so-slyly eyeing Bey’s dancers’ buns. Check out some of their tweets below.
However, checking out Bey’s dancers’ butts wasn’t Jackson’s only viral moment from the BET Awards. The actor also got social media going when a camera caught him singing and bobbing his head along to Fat Joe, Remy Ma and French Montana’s performance of their hit “All the Way Up.”
One Twitter user summed up Jackson’s night at the BET Awards rather nicely:
I guess it should come as no surprise that Jackson was having a great night! He was there to receive the evening’s biggest honor. Former BET Lifetime Achievement Award winners include such legends as Whitney Houston, Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Prince, Diana Ross and Gladys Knight.
