In a promo for the BET Awards, show host Samuel L. Jackson parodied rap artist Nicki Minaj, donning a pink wig and boasting his best beats. Although the clip was uploaded on June 24, it’s getting a trend resurgence this afternoon, aided by the recent announcement that Ms. Minaj will be performing at the annual awards show (#NickiBETAwards).
Mostly, people aren’t loving the impression:
Samuel L. Jackson looks like a fool in these BET Awards commercials. I’m embarrassed for him!!

The 2012 BET Awards will air this Sunday, July 1 at 8 PM EST. What do you think of Jackson’s quirky (creepy?) promo and Minaj impression?
