This is what happens when you invite 45+ crowd to Instagram.

(With all due respect of course.)

What was meant to be one of the most legendary  #IGLiveBattles to date ended up being a big disappointment for almost half a million people.

Mega producers Teddy Riley and Babyface were unable to continue their highly anticipated battle Saturday night because of sound issues on Teddy Riley’s end. It would be the latest installment of #Verzuz curated by super producers Swiss Beats and Timbaland.

About 400K fans tried to relay the echo message to Riley’s camp but his homeboy was too busy jammin’.

At that point, Teddy Riley became a trending topic and the memes went flying everywhere!

Even Mr. Riley had to laugh at himself and post his favorite.
