Best Celebrity Tweets About the 2012 BET Awards

Yahoo Contributor Network

The 2012 BET Awards are in the books and it was full of swearing, mortifying moments and a tribute to Whitney Houston by Mariah Carey and Beyonce, among others.

"I miss my friend. I miss hearing her voice and laughter, but we'll always have the music. We'll always have that voice we fell in love with, she inspired us all, we'll always have my friend Whitney Houston," Carey said during the tribute to the fallen pop star.

The most awkward moment came between Jay-Z and Kim Kardashian when the "Watch the Throne" rappers won for Video of the Year. Jay hugged his wife and West, but he just kinda tapped Kardashian as he made his way to the stage.

Still, our favorite part of the telecast was the snarky tweets by fans and celebrities. Check out our faves.
