Viewers Outraged By Young Money’s Performane With Preteens

Watch The Full Performance Here
Many BET Awards viewers were outraged when Lil Wayne and Drake were joined onstage by several pre-teen girls during the performance of their hit song “Every Girl“.

Some journalists found the presence of the pre-teens to be a bit strange:

Overall, the show was a big downer because… many things just seemed out of place. For example, Drake’s performance had Lil Wayne and his pre-teen daughter with other young girls on stage rapping along to “Every Girl in the World,” which is a song about having escapades with all the girls in the world. (Examiner)

Others thought Weezy’s song choice was inappropriate in light of Michael Jackson’s recent death:

And then came Lil Wayne, in a five minute flurry of such bad taste and poor judgment one can only assume that he was high or simply confused. He performed his new single “Every Girl“. In light of the somber tone of the evening, the performance would have been gauche enough. But onstage with him at the time were several pre-teen girls, who danced in loose choreography and flocked around Lil Wayne like a prepubescent harem. (City Pages)

Many industry insiders used Twitter to express their disappointment with the performance:
