Rihanna, Mayweather Did a Gag at the BET Awards 2015 and People Hated It - Watch

Rihanna duct-tapes Floyd Mayweather’s mouth shut at BET Awards.

Whether it’s slamming an upcoming opponent, flaunting his wealth publically or labelling his father a “cab driver”, the American boxer has a knack of provoking an opinion with his words.

But supposed you were sat next to him at an awards gala and couldn’t take it anymore?

Well, Rihanna was faced with that exact problem at the 2015 BET awards. The global pop star’s solution was to take some duct tape and stick it across Mayweather’s mouth – albeit in a rather staged stunt for the cameras.

Mayweather – who defeated Manny Pacquiao to extend his perfect career record to 48-0 – seemed to take it all in good taste.

Talk has bubbled for a while regarding a potential super-fight between Mayweather and Amir Kahn, with the Brit insisting there had been “movement” in negotiations earlier in June.
