Twitter had a field day with a video that surfaced from the BET Hip Hop Awards this week showing Jayda Cheaves leaving LL Cool J hanging after he went to shake her hand.
Cheaves took to social media on Thursday to clarify that she did not intentionally ignore the legendary MC.
“I really do not want you guys to think that I was being disrespectful,” Cheaves explained on her Instagram Stories. “‘Cause if you know me, everybody know I’m cool as fuck to everybody I meet. I’m super friendly, super bubbly, but let me tell y’all how this went. So, I was backstage actually practicing for the announcement on BET, so we were in the room with the prompter or whatever and one of my PR friends reached out and was like, ‘LL Cool J’s out there, go take a picture.’”
