Apparently boy band Mindless Behavior lived up to their name Sunday night at the BET Awards as far as Beyonce was concerned.

Beyonce was so upset at what they said about Lauryn Hill, that she changed her acceptance speech (on the fly) to honor the former Fugee.

Comedian Mike Epps and the group Mindless Behavior were co-presenting the award for "Best R&B Artist" when Mike jokingly tried to sing.

One of the members of the group quipped, “You sing bad, like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad.”

Watch video below.

The comment drew gasps from the crowd and upset Beyonce, who ultimately won the award that was being presented.

But TMZ has learned that the singer scrapped the speech she had prepared and defended Lauryn’s honor instead,saying, “I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige.”

Sources say the singer vented backstage about the insult, saying the Lauryn Hill diss was “disrespectful” and “not cool.”

Calls to Beyonce’s representative have gone unanswered.

    Who cares people joked and talked about michael jackson for years and still do even during his most down time of his life going through a situation he was accused of something he didn’t do but did it stop anyone from joking and expressing their opinions. people have their own opinions about people though it might be harsh but what else can you but move forward.

    Of course Bigsmoke, I understand that but her situation is still no laughing matter. We all put ourselves in certain situations but that doesn’t give anyone the power to kick you while your down. I’m a firm beleiver in if your not going to help someone, don’t talk negatively about them. You just never know what state of mind they are in. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
