AceShowbiz - Johnny Bananas pulled a Kanye West at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards which is currently airing on MTV. The reality TV star reportedly jumped on stage to accept an award when he didn't receive it and ranted about why his show should have been the winner.
According to The Blast, during the taping at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on Saturday, June 15, "The Real World" star, whose real name is Johnny Devenanzio, crashed the stage when "Love & Hip Hop" won the award for Reality Royalty. His show "The Challenge" was also nominated along with "The Bachelor", "Vanderpump Rules" and "Jersey Shore", but didn't win.
When the cast of "Love & Hip Hop" made their way to the stage, Johnny allegedly also walked up onto the stage and grabbed the mic to make a speech. Sources say he ranted for a minute or two before he was removed from the stage.
He allegedly said this onstage, "We finally won! After all these years, it's about time MTV finally gives 'The Challenge' the recognition it deserves." He went on claiming, "All the other shows that got nominated are essentially paying rent in the genre we created."
Source say, "At one point cast members of 'Love & Hip Hop' started to remove him from the stage after realizing what was happening. It seemed most of that cast, and others, did not know who Johnny Bananas actually was."
The "Love & Hip Hop" cast eventually accepted the award and delivered their speech. MTV is reportedly "furious with Johnny Bananas for doing this are considering editing the entire incident out of the show."
It's unclear if Johnny will face any discipline actions because of his antics as both shows are produced by MTV and VH1. It's also unknown if the footage will be included in the aired show.
Just hours before the annual award event was set to air, the 36-year-old seemed to tease the drama as he wrote on Instagram along with a photo of himself on the red carpet, "Who better to accept the award for 'Reality Royalty' than the King of Controversy [crown emoji and devil emoji] You'll never believe what’s about to go down TONIGHT on @MTV 9/8c."
