MTV paired up ASAP Rocky and Macklemore as presenters last night for the VMAs to introduce Macklemore's gay-rights song "Same Love."

A very nervous Jason Collins spoke to the crowd, "Just before I came out, my grandmother told me she was afraid that I will encounter the same prejudice and bigotry she experienced in the segregated South. I knew hating someone for their sexual orientation is the same thing as hating them for the color of their skin."

As Collins finished, ASAP Rocky grabbed the night and brought on a moment of sharp awkwardness.

"The next artist is a good friend of mine, he stands up for everything he believes in as far as everybody being equal, color...homosexuality--shout to my boy--the white boy can spit, Macklemore," announced Rocky, pointing to Collins as he blurted out homosexual.
