Soulja Boy mourns the loss of his brother and his career at the 2012 BET Awards

Washed up rapper Soulja Boy dissolved into tears as he listened to Cissy Houston sing “Bridge Over Troubled Water” the 2012 Bet Awards in LA on Sunday. His tear-jerking moment recalled Chris Brown’s Visine stunt at the 2010 BET Awards.

Many assumed that Brown was overcome with grief during his Michael Tribute at the 2010 BET Awards, but he was actually mourning the loss of his career — just as Soulja Boy is doing now.

Soulja Boy’s tearful reaction to Cissy Houston’s tribute to her daughter Whitney wasn’t quite as dramatic as Brown’s bawling though.

Black Twitter erupted just as the first tear rolled down Soulja Boy’s cheek. The jokes (and the “Thank You Based God” memes) flew fast and furiously last night. Within minutes Soulja Boy was trending worldwide on the social network.

Soulja Boy has struggled to overcome the double losses of his brother and his career this year. The years have not been kind to him since his first hit song, “Crank Dat,” made him an overnight sensation.

An indication of how bad SB’s evening was going came when the photographers uploaded photos of SB and his girlfriend, rapper Diamond, to the wire services with the caption: “Soulja Boy and his guest.” Ouch.

    • Carmez79

      since his brother died and the song is so emotional, i doubt he was mourning his career and being fake like you say CB was. Damn can he get some respect? just a little considering his brother died and the tribute was so emotional. Shame on you

    • lovezoe

      Didn’t even know him and CZ were still together.

    • YSoSrs

      That headline…I didn’t read past that. Just rude Sandra. :hahaha:

      Somewhere Ericka was watching Scrappy closely for his reaction to seeing them together wondering if he’s over her yet. :coffee:

    • Xena68

      I hope Diamond don’t let him stick those dirty nails in her v-jay.

    • kingstonn

      @ gagirl

      he needs to save his money to get underneath those nails clean.

    • Crickett

      Thugs cry too, Cissy was making everybody tear up. I saw the camera liked Diamond though- I think it’s because she changes her look up as to why she was the “guest”. It’s good to see they still together, why she got to be a hoe because she left Lil’Scrappy and his pimp mama behind??

    • KDub

      I love Pink Ice’s (Diamond) dress.

      But with orange shoes?

      I laughed at the post title but I won’t make fun of that child crying. That’s what’s wrong with our people. A man shows any emotion other than anger and he gets dragged.

      It’s why we have so many violent thugs. They aren’t allowed any other outlet for their emotions.

      I’ve said my fair share about those fingernails, but I won’t pick about the crying. Everyone is entitled to their emotions, and it’s definitely understandable in SB’s case

      I thought Diamond looked nice as well

    • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

      While it was clear to me that CB was doing what they told him to do… Soulja Boy’s tears seemed genuine… Not to mention the fact that he didn’t know he’d be on camera.

      Cry, bro! If that’s what u need to do at that moment, let go… And eff anyone who tries to make u feel like sheyit for it.

    • sdsthomas

      Oh wow! I saw him crying last night and was like ahhhh, Soulja boy getting a little emotional. All I could think about was “See daddy, sinners have souls too!” LMAO! On another note, his nails are dirty! I hate to see a man with dirty nails. You already know his azz didn’t bathe that day! Clean ‘em up SB!

    • sassyshe

      Every time BET captured them I was like look at the crackhead and his girl. Poor Diasmond, bet Scrappy looking real good right now because its so amazing that you was not seeing any photos of her and souljaboy for some time until LHH came out

    • jealousCNenvy

      MEDIA always turns someones cries into something else. If your brother died & ur at another funeral ( a stranger) you would cry for them also. come on…..this post is real childish.

    • hell_on_heels

      He was “feeling the moment”. I’m not sure as to why people would make fun of it or him…..it was confirmed @ some point that he also suffered from a substance abuse problem; maybe it just hit real close to home. People need to reflect and stop being so damn judgmental.

    • belindammp

      Celebs are human to they have feelings ,and Diamond did look nice last night wonder how scrappy feels

    • tintin1979

      DIDN’T know he was still with Diamond. Didn’t she go back to scrappy after he left her the first time. Diamond is a flip flopper. she was with scrappy went to soulja boy, back with scrappy then back to soulja boy. Her pum pum had the best of both worlds.

    • tintin1979

      scrappy says she wants to be like nicki minaj. and she actually looks like nicki in that pic
