Diddy is not having the best night. The “Bad Boy for Life” rapper not only fell into a hole while performing onstage at the 2015 BET Awards, he also repeatedly screwed up while presenting Smokey Robinson during Sunday night’s awards show.


Sean “Diddy” Combs joined hip-hop royalty 112, Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Pharrell Williams, French Montana, Ma$e, and more Bad Boy label artists for an epic tribute on stage at the Microsoft Theater, but his performance was overshadowed by his now-viral mishap.

Clad in a jumpsuit and eyeglasses, Diddy completely dropped into a hole in the middle of the stage before pulling himself back onto his feet.

“The Devil was tryna bring Diddy down to Hell & Diddy wasn't goin lmao,” one viewer captioned a hilarious Vine of Diddy’s fall. This comes just days after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his son Justin Combs’ assistant UCLA football coach.

“I was getting so loose I fell! LOL, but really though I busted my ass! #finnaGetLoose #AppleMusic ... Puff Daddy & The Family feat @pharrell ... IF YOU EVER FALL DOWN, get your ass up and FIGHT!!!!!!! But really though, I crack up every time I see this s—t! It's like I f—king disappeared. HAAAAAA!!!!” Diddy later captioned an Instagram.

Following the snafu, Diddy introduced Smokey Robinson and stumbled while reading the teleprompter. “I’m sorry, y’all, I’m a little nervous because we just celebrated 20 years and it’s like a big deal for me, so thank you all for being with me. I appreciate you. I’ve got to do it right for Smokey, can you start it again?” he said while presenting the legend with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
