BET Awards 2014: Unofficial Parties Sullied by Shootings, Stabbing

Michael Walsh, NY Daily News, June 30, 2014

The Black Entertainment Television Awards is distancing itself from the violence that erupted at several parties for people attending the ceremony Sunday night.

The events were not sanctioned by BET.

The most recent shooting reportedly broke out about 2:30 a.m. Monday outside the Supper Club on Hollywood Boulevard.

TMZ reports that many famous rappers were in the club at the time, including Busta Rhymes, Game, Meek Mil and T-Pain.

No one was injured and the shooter escaped.

Early Sunday morning, about 5:17 a.m., one person was killed and four others were injured in a separate shooting at the Monalizza Restaurant and Banquet in East Hollywood, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

It was not immediately clear whether the gunman attended the party or shot from outside the venue, police said.


Similarly, on Friday night, a man in his 30s was reportedly stabbed in the stomach at a club in Hollywood called Lure, reported local station KNBC.

    We don’t need gun control. We need minority control.

    In other news:

    Elyjah Marrow — grandson of rapper Ice-T — was arrested after he accidentally shot and killed his roommate.

      Agreed, and if anyone should be disarmed by force in the U.S., it’s the blacks and browns who commit the vast majority of murders here with or without the use of firearms.

      • A Freespeechzone

        Obama, Holder and their ilk would go door-to-door in White neighborhoods to confiscate guns—if they could….but, would NEVER shake down criminal, felon black and brown gang members….that would be racist.

        Good luck getting any of the guns……never happen, even if forced…..

  • The mildly dyslexic might in a hurry read this and think it was the EBT Awards.

    Someone was stabbed at a BET event!!!!
    Nooooooooo – that’s not possible!!!!

      Exactly, violence at a Black event is like a heart attack at a retirement home: very very unlikely.

    • me

      Ain’t no party like a Negro party! If nobody gets shot, stabbed, or raped, you have failed as a host…..

      • MekongDelta69

        The combined IQ of the six ‘peeps in da pic’ is about 300 – give or take.

        Which, coincidentally, JUST HAPPENS to be the combined WAIST size of the six ‘peeps in da pic.’

        Ain’t that something?!!

      • I could put all those guys down with my old G-43. The one in the blue parka would get the first, and whomever is behind him also gets part of it. The guy on his left gets the next because he has his hand in his pocket. That’s three, and they’re all down. I’d fire into the mob while they were trying to leave. That’s eight dead while I was reloading.

      • ElComadreja

        Remember, those are “human and equal”. I’d love to see these throwbacks running from the cops with their pants around their knees.

      • benvad

        Just shoot these parasites.

        • Alexandra1973

          Looking at these thugs makes me feel like I want to–out of self-defense! I wouldn’t mind drop-kicking them back to Africa.

      • Shawn_thefemale

        Bahahahaha!!! The best laugh I’ve had all day. No surprise, what with the disfiguring arthritis these unfortunate young creatures display that they can’t pull their britches up…

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    The editors should save this story to run again in June 2015 after the next BET Awards show.

  • So CAL Snowman

    “TMZ reports that many famous rappers were in the club at the time, including Busta Rhymes, Game, Meek Mil and T-Pain.”

    This “nation” is the biggest, most pathetic joke in the history of the world. Only in the most backwards, disgusting county on earth would retarded african savages be considered famous and praised for their ability to slur incoherently over the sound of jungle drums.

      Welcome to the modern US of A, where war is peace, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength.

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    It may be that a bullet is the highest honor one can receive at the BET Awards.

  • Luca

    Anyone foolish enough to attend any predominantly black event should become intimately familiar with how to wear a bullet-proof vest.

    • David Ashton

      And ear plugs.

    • Alexandra1973

      I’ve heard that repo men can have an absolute field day in parking lots where black events are being held.

  • JohnEngelman

    (10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

  • David Ashton

    An detailed article on the criminal past and indeed present of prominent black “musicians” might be of interest.

  • Who Me?

    Elyjah Marrow — grandson of rapper Ice-T — was arrested after he accidentally shot and killed his roommate.
    Tracy Lauren Marrow, better known by his stage name Ice-T was born in 1958, He is 2 years younger than I am, and he has a 19 year old grandson? My oldest grandchild is 11 years old.

    Oh wait, that averages out to an average generation on about 18 years, (17 counting for 9 months of gestation…) That’s supposing the mother at or near the same age as the supposed sire. Well, better than I expected from hood rats.
    As for the rest of the BET “stars” ,too bad none of them were injured by their usual antics.

    • ElComadreja

      By negro standards he should be at least a great granpappy by now. Maybe the grandson is on the downlow.

  • Tarczan

    The BET awards were not sullied by some stabbings and a murder, rather they gained “street cred”. You know, keepin’ it real like Rev. Al.

  • Fathercoughlin

    My heart weeps; but thank the Lord we did not lose any rappers!!!

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Man Stabbed at BET Awards Pre-Show Party

    One dead and four injured at BET Awards party shooting

    That means the event was a smashing success!!

    This happens after the Tony Awards and after the Country Music Awards, right?

  • IstvanIN

    I wonder how many shootings there are at White Super Bowl parties, or White Grammy parties or whatever kinds of parties White people have to celebrate something silly?

  • vitodanelli

    All The Beatles and The Rolling Stones ever did was call each other names …

  • Shawn_thefemale

    The only thing that should have made news was if no violence had occurred at all.

    • jane johnson

      There was Altamont.

      • jane johnson

        Sorry, wrong post.

      • Bill

        A black guy pulled a gun, and got himself stabbed.

        • [Guest]

          A black guy who was attending the concert with his white girlfriend, if I recall correctly.

          • ElComadreja

            Yep, but that’s not what got him killed. The dumb bastard pulled a gun on Hell’s Angels. Talk about suicidal.

          • Alexandra1973

            Suicide by cop, now suicide by biker….

          • [Guest]

            Either way, good riddance.

  • [Guest]

    Come, now. It’s impossible to “sully” BET.

    • TruthBeTold

      I thought that was an odd choice of a word.

  • Erasmus

    It’s BET, not the Metropolitan Opera. Of course, there are going to be shootings, stabbings, muggings and a rape or two.

  • bilderbuster

    Stories like this one are Black Entertainment to me.

  • IKUredux

    It is so very hard for me to admit that Negroes cannot fit into this society. I was a champion of Blacks for a very long time. I truly felt that they did not get jobs because of arbitrary discrimination, not because they couldn’t do the job. Hey! Don’t ever accuse me of not being able to stick to a dogma i believed in. However, the facts of the matter have been thrust into my face. For the most part, Blacks are stupid. For the most part, Blacks are lazy. Sadly, despite my protestations to the contrary, it turns out after my many years dealing with Blacks, that everything said about them is true. Oh, and I would like to point out that Chris Rock did interviews with White people who attended a Monster Truck Rally. He asked them questions such as what does “BET” stand for. My head is getting ready to explode. Who the hell does this little ugly Negro think is paying his bills? Who the hell does this ugly little Negro think he is? I’ll tell you, a Negro who feels completely comfortable among “cracker Whites”, to the point he walks among them with impunity. Seriously, part of the crowd was shocked that the Negro was even there,but, unlike his fellow Blacks, if a White turned up at a all Black revue, well, the reception would have been less than cordial. Bottom line is this: A known negro (Rock) is allowed to film at an Monster Truck Rally. The reality is very simple: No Whites show up to record all Black events because :1!. There is no interest on the part of the reading public. 2). Nobody wants to risk their life reporting on Black Bike Week. . No White person, regardless of class, watches BET. Hey! Chris Rock! Why don’t you query Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid. OR, OR why don’t you query all the White liberals you find at Starbucks? I’ll betcha none of them know anything about the BET awards either.

    • ElComadreja

      Glad you woke up about these savages.

  • MikeofAges

    Famous rappers nearby? Heard a line in TV show one, ‘Risk creates sensation, and sensation justifies risk.”

    I assume they want to be there. It make it real.

  • Jack Burton

    As long as it’s black-on-black crime, just think of it as population control.

    • Alexandra1973

      Just wall off the cities, maybe put cameras in and have it on pay-per-view. Kind of like “Hunger Games–African version.”

  • ElComadreja

    Any time they gather in groups for any reason the possibility of violence is very real and happens often. Hell, just one of them is enough.
