Jack Harlow and Saweetie's BET Awards Interaction Sparks Wave of Memes

BET Awards viewers are still thinking about the flirtatious encounter between Jack Harlow and Sweetie on Sunday's red carpet.

The two became trending topics on Twitter after legions of viewers watched Harlow seemingly shoot his shot with the rapper on camera before the ceremony.

Harlow, a 23-year-old rapper and songwriter known for the track "What's Poppin," approached the "My Type" rapper as she was about to be interviewed on the red carpet.

Harlow took the 27-year-old by the hand and introduced himself, saying, "I'm Jack," to which she responded, "I know."

"You don't like getting caught off guard," Harlow added, before Saweetie asked why he was shaking.

Harlow replied, "Nobody's shaking," before walking off, leaving viewers questioning who was the nervous one in the equation.

Saweetie—whose real name is Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper and is related to both MC Hammer and Gabrielle Union—previously dated Quavo from Migos. Harlow has been linked to TikTok star Addison Rae.

The Shade Room, which originally posted the video of the interaction, asked Saweetie if Harlow was "shooting his shot." She replied: "I don't know, but y'all better not be messy with this s***."

Harlow was asked about the interaction a few hours later and told reporters he was "just saying hello."

"You can't say hello these days, I guess," Harlow continued, describing himself as a "nice person."

He added: "That's a friend—that's a friend vibe."
