Twitter Roasts Drake for Getting Curved by Rihanna at 2016 MTV Video Music Awards
Last night at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Drake presented Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the end of the night. The entire ceremony was building to this moment, with Rih doing multiple medley performances scattered throughout the evening, but it all came to a head when Drake walked out in a tux with the Moon Man in his hand.
Then things went a little sideways. After making a long-winded speech about why Rihanna's a legend, how he's loved her since he was 22 and the first time they met, Drake handed the award to Rihanna and appeared to go in for a kiss. Instead he got something between a hug and a peck on the cheek, and Twitter pounced swiftly. Check out some of the funniest jokes above.
Not only did the memes of their interaction fly, but people had jokes for Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill too, as they were both in the building as well. Drake came late, however, and there wasn't any static between OVO and Dreamchasers.
Afterwards, Drake and Rihanna hit the town together, so the jokes were surely blown out of proportion, but the internet still loves to frame Drake as a simp who bows to the heavenly RiRi.
Aubrey himself walked away with the award for Best Hip-Hop Video of the Year for "Hotline Bling," but had an otherwise quiet night.
