Did you catch the Billboard Music Awards last night? If not, you missed the usual. Pop artists dressing weird, someone being faux-controversial, and Chris Brown getting yet another chance to remind you that there are still people who actually like and support him.
Then, during R&B lothario Miguel's performance, everything changed. Let's go to the tape:
Miguel, channeling James Brown (or your one friend who totally swears that they can still dunk even though they haven't played basketball since sophomore year,) absolutely botches his attempted leap across the audience and hits a poor young lady with a legdrop so vicious I screamed the first time I saw it.
The young lady ended up being OK, but the internet had already gone to the proverbial woodshed and unleashed a phalanx of Photoshops, GIFs, and all around slander directed in Miguel's general direction. Here now, is some of that slander.
