50 Cent claims BET Awards are fixed

Rapper 50 Cent has lashed out at bosses of the BET Awards, alleging Sunday night's (28Jun15) awards show was "fixed".

The In Da Club hitmaker took to Instagram.com after the ceremony to criticize organizers for allegedly handing the trophies to musicians who performed, including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar and the cast of TV show Empire.


He wrote in the caption, "Man everything is fixed, it's a... shame. Everybody who preform (sic) get a award. Am I really the only one who see this."


The rapper also made a video reiterating his belief that the awards were fixed and mocking his rival Sean 'Diddy' Combs for his embarrassing stage fall during the Bad Boys Records performance, saying, "It's a... shame what happened to the BET Awards... The highlight of the whole... show was Puffy (Combs) busting his (butt)."


Chris Brown was the big winner of the night, taking home three prizes at the Los Angeles ceremony.
