Chris Brown may have been the big winner at last night's BET Awards, but it's Tiffany Green that everybody's talking about today.

Who, you say?

Well, see, Green, as the winner of the BET Your World/Our World contest, presented the Coca-Cola Viewers' Choice Award to the wrong winner: Rihanna, after first announcing—correctly, it turns out—that her beatdown-delivering boyfriend Brown deserved the honor.

But before you rush to judgement and put the blame on Green, read on...

"And the winner is...Chris Brown?" Green announced with confusion in her voice as she squinted at the teleprompter before quickly correcting herself.

"I'm sorry. Rihanna!" she then said.

But with the singer not in attendance, her "What's My Name?" partner Drake quickly came up to accept the award on Rihanna's behalf.

"Well, this is awkward," pointed out Drake.

Actually, what's even more awkward is the fact that Green got it right the first time when she announced Brown's name. Yep. It was Rihanna's ex who, in the end, took home the prize after host Kevin Hart noted the mistake as the show was finishing up.

"That BET Awards Viewers Choice mix-up was due to human error," tweeted Stephen Hill, BET's President of Music Programming and Specials. "And I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected."
