Tracee Ellis Ross, 2015 BET Awards

Uh-oh, some fanbases are gathering up pitchforks and lighting some torches.

Tracee Ellis Ross laughed while introducing Tyga and Chris Brown at the 2015 BET Awards, but fans of the duo probably aren't laughing with her. They're too busy calling for her blood.

The comedienne and Black-ish star was doing her hosting duties while introducing Chris Brown and Tyga's performance and after reading off the prompter that they were "young, sexy and black," she paused and kind of laughed. Now when we watched this moment, it seemed like she was taking a beat to let the audience cheer for a second. But other people watched what happened and thought that she couldn't get through a sentence about Tyga and Brown being "young, sexy and black" without laughing.

Watch the moment below and tell us if you think this was level 10 shade-throwing or just a mistimed laugh.

Could be harmless, or it could be that Ross felt the need to have a little laugh at their expense. And to be honest, she didn't exactly pick the worst targets to throw some shade at. The copy on the award show teleprompter is usually read by celebs with a bored "reading ingredients off a cereal box" kind of tone, but after saying "equally a triple threat," it seemed like Ross couldn't even keep a straight face.

Or maybe she wasn't sure how to pronounce "Tyga?" It is a tricky name to say.

Regardless of her intention or reason, social media decided it was a jab at the two singers and ran with it.

What do you guys think? Was Ross slighting Chris Brown and Tyga or are people grasping at straws?
