MTV might want to think twice before it invites Eminem to another awards show.
The star seemed shocked and not a little bit displeased when actor Sacha Baron Cohen, appearing as his alter-ego Bruno, landed face down in the rapper’s lap during Sunday’s “MTV Movie Awards.”
Watch Eminem's reaction to the stunt:
Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, appeared to be unaware of the joke when a winged Cohen descended on him from the rafters. Security for the rap artist shoved Cohen away before Eminem stormed out of the Gibson Amphitheatre.
It was not the first time the rapper had a run-in at an MTV awards show. In 2002, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (voiced by comic Robert Smigel) angered Eminem during a mock interview at the "MTV Video Music Awards."
The puppet pooch weighed in on the latest incident after Sunday’s show. "I'm a legend," Triumph told MTV News. "And I sat on Eminem's face long before Bruno ever did.”
