These pictures of Monica Brown and Taraji P. Henson at the 2012 BET Awards circulated widely on Twitter.com last night, as users assumed singer Monica Brown was shading the actress when she walked behind her on the red carpet.

But ask yourself, why on earth would Monica throw shade at Taraji? That is not even Monica's style.

Update:

Monica tweeted this earlier today on Twitter.com:

This post was originally written @ 11:42 a.m.

Always the consummate professional, Mo took to her Twitter page to give Taraji a shout out. But the devil was busy last night on black Twitter.

Fortunately, Mo's fans know she has way too much class to ever shade another professional. Mo was obviously reacting to a joke told by her hubby, Shannon Brown.

      :rofl: I don't think that face had anything to do with Taraji.

    • YSoSrs

      Monica isn't in a position to shade anyone anyway. :coffee:

    • Hershey

      Of course Mo never says anything negative or does any wrong :coffee:

      P.S. Bangs Monica, Bangs... everytime I saw that head I wanted to :smack:

    • Melissa Niice

      That face has me in tears :rofl:

    • OutsidetheBox

      I love the way Taraji was like fukk you and your spanx. She looks good.

    • Ms.Fashion

      Ummm nooo.....

      I think the posters on @sandrarose's sight about to take of that!! Starting with her shoes!!! :rofl:

    • Xena68

      Maybe her C Breezy looking husband said something funny.

    • OutsidetheBox

      But more importantly Mo is wearing my FAVE FALL 2012 COLOR. Im obsessed and buying up everything in that shade, rogue, wine, bordeaux. I want it.

      I do not like Taraji's dress.

    • lovezoe

      While I don't think Monica shaded Taraji, let's not out her on this imaginary pedestal. How about we talk about the blatant shade Tamar threw at Kyla. Also since kids are off limits, OMG Girlz were great, just GREAT. Remember how people laughed when Matthew made Beyonce run and sing in heels.

    • Ms.Fashion

      Did anyone catch Letoya and Michelle of Destinys Child sitting together?? I thought that was ironic. The old member and the replacement in harmony!!! Love them!!! :yes:

    • Melissa Niice

      Monica lips :rofl: I can't stop laughing

    • YSoSrs

      Also...I was on "black Twitter" last night and didn't see this at all. Must have been on the wrong corner or something. :coffee:

    • QueenSJ

      Pictures speak a thousand words and can be interpreted in a thousand different ways.

      Just for that hilarious face, I'll give Monica the benefit of the doubt. :lol:

    • OutsidetheBox

      <---was on the wrong side of Black twitter too :lol:

    • KyCakes

      That face... :rofl:

      I like Taraji

    • BoogieNites

      :yawn: heard taraji be extra feeln herself anyway :shrug: and i don't like the dress either :no:

    • Xena68

      Looks like they are looking at something else to me :think:

    • OutsidetheBox

      Unh uh @Zoe my girls are OMG stans! and even they were like "Ma OMG it was not good!" all dramatic and chit :lol:

      I missed their performance...mustve been the preshow? They reported that they did like BabyDoll's outfit but that there was "too much hair..." I think everybody had too much hair for their liking :lol:

      It was funny how they were in disbelief that this could happen. :lol:

    • http://youtu.be/Yop62wQH498 Daddy Warbucks

      Monica clearly has the (beyotch please) look oh her face. Anybody seen JMO? :tea:

    • BoogieNites

      Lovezoe says: ..How about we talk about the blatant shade Tamar threw at Kyla.

      ^^^^^^^^^^^
      talk about it. was flipping bk and forth. didnt hear it.

    • Hershey

      Shannon: Now that's a bad bish right there

      Mo: Where? Who are you talking about?

      Shannon: Taraji P. Henson, that azz is like whoa

      Mo: Ni$$a please She ain't all that with them cheap azz shoes on, and she needs a spanx while you talkin negrow...

    • OutsidetheBox

      What chall thank Mo was like, "Chile.... with that prom dress?" :lol:

      See Mo's reptile print dress she performed in was Alexnader McQueen (this is huge in fashion world) so she prolly saw Taraji in that and was like..."I didnt come for that..."? :lol:

    • lovezoe

      OTB- let's say I see why Wayne pulled the plug on Reginae being in the group

      OMG I love the camo skirt? or whatever the stylist is wearing behind Mo. #Sohood..soratchetmusthaveit

    • lovezoe

      Boogie- Tamar was like who are you wearing. Kyla said BCBG. Tamar was like "Oh, that's okay"

    • prynsexxx

      I love Tarjii, don't like the dress or the late 90 shoes. Different era woulda been more suitable.

      @OTB
      I LOVE that color too. Love it paired with green and gold and BAM!

      I'm mad at the chick with the played out camo capris and heels on. Thing is I started to rock the SAME THING (minus the camo) yesterday. Then I thought the heat had gotten to my thought process. Where did these awards take place?

    • OutsidetheBox

      Tamar tho :eyeroll:

      I liked her better when she wasnt "famous."

      dammn. dammn. dammmmmmn. :no:

    • Gigi26

      Them OMG girlz sounded horrendous at the preshow and they looked horrible as well. Poor styling at its finest :no:

      Tamar told Kyla that she was bussing it wide open :rofl: I died.

    • prynsexxx

      :smack: @OTB

      So you saying camo fashion is coming back?

    • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

      NAAW U SEE HER HUBBY FACE THEY WAS CLOWNING ON SUMMPTING ELSE :lol: FUNNY FACE THO

    • MrsWDE

      -@lovezoe yeah Tamar threw shade at Kyla for real. She was acting like BCBG is beneathe her.
      -Did anyone see Tiny? Is it just me or has she gotten hip and butt implants?

    • OutsidetheBox

      Prynn thats not a skirt? *goes to zoom*

      Ohh I think yure.right. I like the idea of it. I love camo tho. I like her tee. Different bangles, different shootie :yes:

    • lovezoe

      Gigi- more shade at Jyla having a stripper baby daddy. She was like Penny Proud bussing it wide open

    • http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/db78ef2b213fd6958c1aa6773fe9a6dc?s=80 jeniefrumdabloc

      This one day I should have really took off :crying:

    • OutsidetheBox

      :ashamed: @Prynn I never took it off... and its re-emerging. Anytime we get that military inspired trend going well see camo into play.

      good afternoon tho :coffee:

    • KDub

      Taraji got that dress off the semi-formal rack at Ross.

    • howmanylicks_07untiluswallow

      On topic but not
      Sandy Mae you know no one said that Brandy sings better than Monica. What was said is that Brandy is more popular and more known than Monica.

      Most people only know Monica from the song she did with Brandy. On this topic I hope she wasnt.

    • KDub

      Not sure if MO threw shade at her...but I know Taraji got them shoes from the Chinese Laundry website. The clearance section.

    • OutsidetheBox

      Ross tho :lol: The racks in the front :hahaha:

    • BoogieNites

      :ha: ROSS

    • OutsidetheBox

      :lol: :hahaha: I aint bout to today with yew KDubb but @Prynn said they was from the 90sssss

    • prynsexxx

      Well I'm bringing my "specially made (by my mama)" camo skirt back out. It's SHAWWPP too. It's jean at the top, with an A-line cut camo material down to the foots, with a bridal train on the back. FUX WIT IT! :seriousface:

    • YSoSrs

      Somebody on "black Twitter" said that Tamar is to the Braxtons what LaToya is to the Jacksons. What say y'all? :think:

    • OutsidetheBox

      :hahaha: I get MAD if my mama sugest I go find something in Ross..and she allways follow it up with whatever "great" buy she found. :eyeroll:

      Whatever Ma. If you had to climb a mountain, shoot a deer, and accost an Asian for it...the $10 you saved aint worth it guhl!

    • lovezoe

      Tamar needs to understand no one would care about her if it won't for Toni

    • KDub

      So Tamar was tambout Kyla bussin something open for her man...but her husband...look like he been bussin it open in the name of buffets EVERYWHERE.

    • candibfly

      i don't like her dress, but she prob forgot the BET Awards were that night and was like oh snap! i said i would go to the awards, lemme pin my hair back and throw on something :shrugs:

    • OutsidetheBox

      It’s jean at the top, with an A-line cut camo material down to the foots, with a bridal train on the back. FUX WIT IT!...

      :yes: with noted retractions :lol: And gone head and chop an inch or 3 offa it. LOL

    • KDub

      <<< thinks Vince really was the inspiration behind the character Fat Bastard.

      "get in my belly"

    • OutsidetheBox

      SIS :lol: Dont tell Tamar that! :lol: I think Letoya still would be the bigger star tho...

    • OutsidetheBox

      When she tweeted that stuff about K. Michelle :lol: what did she say?

      "I like Toni anyway.." :lol:

    • prynsexxx

      LOL

      I'm gone leave that train on the back, that's what makes it SHAWB! You sure that trend coming back out? LOL

    • KDub

      Somebody on “black Twitter” said that Tamar is to the Braxtons what LaToya is to the Jacksons. What say y’all?
      -----------------------------------------
      I think her azz is more like Marlon.

      How Joe didnt want to let his non dancing non sanging azz in but her HAD too cause he was family.

    • candibfly

      tamar can actually sing tho, but in terms of plastic surgery and saying stuff for attention then yes she's like latoya

    • prynsexxx

      O'an I feel the need to mention this b/c it's been on my heart.

      Poor lil (weeping) Willow. :sad: Did yall see her video and lack of nourishment?

    • capricorn83

      I don't think Monica's face was about Taraji at all. But if it was, Monica has no room to talk IMO. With the exception of her shoe game, I hate Monica's style 96% of the time!

    • KDub

      Why is there a stain on the red carpet?

      Why is Shannon dressed down? Aint no way Imma have my shat on and nukka you look like you going bowling.

    • OutsidetheBox

      :newpost: ill up.

      And yes @Prynn small doses tho. Small :lol:

    • KDub

      I dont understand why Tamar is so MEAN to people. Like Kyla PRATT? Really

    • OutsidetheBox

      EXACTLY Why PRAY TELL is Tamar such a nastly little muppet??

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_gGqaUA78I datsmdubya2u

      Mo sang that song last night tho...yes she did. worth of a tribute to Whitney.

      As for the rest..... :tape:

    • deedeegirl

      Aint nobody thankin bout Monica. That Whitney tribute is sure to be her last performance for a ling ass time. She should have been soaking up every second because its gonna be a long time before her next album flops.

      Maybe, Monica walked into someone's fart. Ya'll know that face, when you're in the supermarket and someone in the aisle done farted and you catch the smell. That's the face you make lol.

    • hell_on_heels

      I must admit, this is the WORST I've seen Miss. Henson look in a while.....just very unput together". She needed Spanx and to also come out of that dated after 5 dress and strappy sandals. All around NOT a good look for her:-(

      *****************************************

      ONly thing I'm asking myself is why you made this into a story

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_gGqaUA78I datsmdubya2u

      it's obvious someone didn't use a stylist last night cause they woulda tole her to put on some spanx
