BET Awards: Don’t Worry, Rihanna Isn’t Really A Money Throwing Witch
If you tuned in for the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday night, your jaw probably hit the floor when you saw Rihanna throw a stack of money in Stephen Hill’s face.
Before revealing a snippet of her “BBHMM” music video, cameras captured the signer looking incredibly annoyed and yelling at Hill, BET’s President of Programming.
Folks instantly sparked debate on Twitter, one viewer writing:

But the good news is, Ri isn’t the witch you might’ve thought. Turns out, the act was all part of the skit. Following the awards show, Ri posted a snapshot on Instagram with the program director with the caption:
“@stephengranthill thank you for a fun night in celebration of black music!! #BETawards2015 #iHeartSmokeyRobinson.”
Hill posted the same image, writing:
“We kissed and made up. #BETAwards . what a night!!”
