    BET Threw A Bit Of Shade After Madonna's Prince Tribute

    "Don't worry. We got you."

    Last night, Madonna, pop icon, performed "Purple Rain" at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards in honor of Prince, who died last month.

    Although she gave it her all, a lot of people online panned the performance.

    Madge was later joined on stage by the great Stevie Wonder...

    ...but even his presence wasn't enough to change people's minds.

    Without missing a beat, BET posted a video that subtly shaded the tribute to The Purple One.

    It showed Prince standing in the midst of a rainy backdrop, but the kicker is the caption, which read: "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We got you."

    OK, we see you, BET!

    But it better deliver or you'll have to deal with Prince giving you a side-eye from somewhere beyond our earthly realm.
