"Sam Smith isn't here tonight because he's white." Dayummm!
Anthony Anderson simultaneously honored and teased the Stay With Me singer at the BET Awards Sunday night!

Sam was given the Best New Artist Award, and knowing that he wouldn't show up, the host accepted the statue on his behalf — in what we guess was a Sam Smith wig??
Decked out in a Sam Smith costume, Anthony took the chance to talk about Sam being white — from explaining that that was the reason he wasn't there to going on to say Sam should drop by his house to get the award because black people can't just drop by white people's houses!
What'd you think of the HIGHlarious moment?!
