BET Honors Explains Bobby Brown's Appearance After Social Media Backlash, Tina Brown Hospitalized for Chest Pains

Bobby Brown caused a social media frenzy after attending the BET Honors Monday night while his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, remains hospitalized.

But here's the reality of the situation: BET Honors is pre-taped. Yes, Whitney Houston's ex-husband attended the event, but it was filmed on Jan. 24, a full week before his daughter was found facedown in her bathtub.

BET briefly explained the situation in a tweet that also called for continued prayers for his daughter.

"Continued prayers for King of R&B Bobby Brown during this difficult time. (The #BETHonors is pre-taped)," the network wrote.  

But the explanation hasn't stopped users from continuing to slam the "My Prerogative" singer on Twitter. 

In addition to facing massive amounts of criticism, Bobby has also been hit with a new health scare: Tina Brown, Bobby's sister, has now been hospitalized. According to a statement obtained by NBC, Tina began "experiencing severe chest pains."

"She was rushed to and hospitalized at Dekalb Medical Center Sunday night. Her concern for her niece Bobbi Girl, as Tina calls her, has been emotionally overwhelming contributing to her current health challenges," the statement continues. "She's had a pacemaker for several years and is now being treated for vascular blockage in her neck and an irregular heartbeat. Tina encourages all to continue to pray for her niece Krissi and the family."

A source tells E! News that she remains at DeKalb General after "breaking down often" because everything with Bobbi Kristina has "been very hard on her." The source also adds, "Given [her pacemaker] and the amount of anxiety she was dealing with, she was taken to the hospital. Since she's been in there, doctors have found some blockages in her neck. She's currently undergoing more scans and tests."
