mark-cuban-kevin-oleary-shark-tank-ABC.jpgThe 2014 Billboard Music Awards aired on ABC and as such, stars from various ABC shows were on hand to present awards or introduce performances. “Shark Tank” sharks Mark Cuban and Kevin O’Leary amongst those celebrities, but while “Bachelorette” Andi Dorfman and “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Danica McKellar got innocuous, cute bits, Cuban and O’Leary … not so much.

Before introducing Forida Georgia Line, Cuban cracks, “We’ve just spent $3.2 billion to buy a hot new company called ‘Beat-downs By Solange.'” O’Leary adds, “That was a great elevator pitch.”

They were met with groans and boos from the audience, as the joke went over like a lead balloon.

Seriously, who writes this stuff? There are definitely jokes to be made about Solange Knowles going off on sister Beyonce’s husband Jay Z in an elevator at the Met Gala, but that … was not one of them.
