Sued Over BET Awards

Shooting

EXCLUSIVE

0407-viacom-vs-bet-03
A man who got shot at a BET Awards after party claims the club -- as well as Viacom and BET -- made a near fatal mistake with security ... and wants them to pay up for it.

Antwon Black claims in a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ --  he attended a party at Compound Nightclub in Atlanta on October 2, 2011 ... the official BET after party.

Black says the club messed up and allowed one of its frequent patrons past security without checking for weapons -- that patron ended up shooting Black in his left leg.

Black is suing the owners of the club, Viacom and BET for failing to keep the club safe.

That party does have a place in hip-hop history -- Diddy allegedly almost came to blows with someone because they were drinking something other than Diddy's Ciroc vodka. T.I. had to take to the mic to calm Diddy down.

BET had no comment.

I avoid any club that involves rappers, rap music, BET, and much more for the reason listed in the article. Too much violence and shootings involved.

Seems unlikely that a BLACK man would be shot by another BLACK PERSON at the Black Entertainment Television awards.

He should win it was BET's official party rap/urban/hip hop promotes the life. But they did not pat everyone down that is crazy. Plus prior history at these events.
