Sameul L. Jackson was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards on Sunday, but it wasn't the award that had everyone talking. The internet is still buzzing after a video of Jackson checking out the butt of one of Beyonce's dancers went viral.

Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar opened the award function with a performance of "Freedom" and as her dancers paraded through the audience, Jackson couldn't keep his eyes from roving.

He was caught on camera eyeing one of the dancers, and the internet is having a field day with the video.

"Samuel L Jackson couldn't even be slick about looking at that girls butt ," wrote one fan. Another added: "Who was that looking at that girl butt all thirsty Samuel L Jackson ? Lol #betawards."

Interestingly, this wasn't the only thing that sent Twitter in frenzy. The actor once again sent social media abuzz thanks to a video of him singing and bobbing his head along to Fat Joe, Remy Ma and French Montana's performance of "All the Way Up."

The night also saw him accepting the Lifetime Achievement Award and thanking his family for giving him a reason to chase his dream. "A young man who grew up in segregated Tennessee that nobody ever told I could be this. So, here I am and who you are, and thank God for that," he said, according to HollywoodLife.

Thanking his daughter Zoe and wife LaTanya, Jackson said they were "the two women that actually found me passed out on the floor after I left somebody's bachelor party put my ass in rehab the next day, and supported me and pushed me and give me a reason to get up and go and chase it day after day after day."
