The Weeknd Apologizes to Usher for Not Fact-Checking BBMA Claim


Photo by Jeff Kravitz/Getty Images via ABCThe Weeknd was a big winner at the Billboard Awards on Sunday, but after tweeting out his excitement over his big win, the singer ended up apologizing to Usher for not fact-checking his claim.

The Canadian singer, who was nominated 19 times and took home 8 awards, tweeted, “XO we took home 8 ! more than any male artist in history Thank you @billboard.”

Unfortunately for The Weeknd, his information wasn’t exactly accurate. Usher’s fans reminded the “Earned It” singer that back in 2004 Usher took home 14 awards.

After the faux pas, The Weeknd  begged Usher’s forgiveness, tweeting, “Apologize to the OG @Usher, got excited and spoke to soon.”
