At the 2024 BET Awards, hosted by Taraji P. Henson for the third consecutive year, a memorable mix-up occurred involving TikTok food influencer Keith Lee and TikToker Jordan Howlett. Keith Lee, accompanied by his wife Ronnie Lee, attended the event in Los Angeles, where Henson’s “giving people their flowers” segment took an unexpected turn.

During the segment, Henson initially mispronounced Halle Bailey’s name, adding a touch of humor when she asked a security guard to present her with a rose. The moment became even more amusing as Henson approached the audience and engaged with Jordan Howlett, known as Jordan Thee Stallion on TikTok. She playfully asked Howlett about his marital status, mistaking him for Keith Lee. Turning to Howlett, Henson joked, “Mr. Keith Lee, I know what you’re thinking right now, this is about a 10.9 outta 10?” The audience erupted in laughter when Howlett pointed out Keith, who was seated next to his wife Ronnie.

Realizing her mistake, Henson gracefully apologized to Keith, acknowledging her mix-up with a humorous comment, “I got caught up in my own inner monologue, I’m so sorry.” She proceeded to deliver the rose to Keith, continuing the bit and playfully adding, “You fine, too. So call me. Give him his flower.”

Keith Lee took the incident in stride, later sharing a now-deleted TikTok video where he humorously dropped the rose on the floor, accompanied by a reflective caption about divine timing and recognition.

Prior to the awards show, Keith expressed his excitement about attending the event with his wife in an interview with ET, highlighting his gratitude and faith. “It’s amazing. I’m blessed to be here,” he remarked. “We look amazing. My wife looks amazing. God is amazing. I’m just here. I’m thankful. We’re everywhere we’re supposed to be at all times.”

Reflecting on his journey, Keith expressed gratitude for the opportunities that have come his way. “I always knew that God destined something for me special,” he shared. “I just never knew what path it was going to take me, and I’m here for every path that he puts me on.”

The mix-up at the BET Awards added a lighthearted moment to the evening, showcasing Keith Lee’s good-natured response and Taraji P. Henson’s ability to entertain even amidst minor mishaps.
