A cease and desist letter has been filled by 3 producers, who say Mike Epps stole their idea for the “Social Awards.” BET recently announced that in February they will be airing the first ever award show honoring those who have made an impact in social media.
The idea seems like a great one and has been getting some buzz, but it seems as though not everyone is happy with the idea! The three producers said they pitched a very similar idea to Epps’ cousin, back in February 2017. They said they felt totally blindsided when they found out about BET’s plans to air the show, but there is still some hope! They said they are willing to work with Mike Epps and have the intentions of selling it to FOX. Hmmm..I don’t know what this means for the award show, but check back in for updates!
