Add another award or whatevah to Bretman Rock's list of achievements. This time, he wins the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards Breakout Social Media Star award. In his acceptance speech, he thanks "everyone who watched me grow up on the internet. It's probably the most traumatizing [thing] I've ever done in my entire life." Side note, he accepted the award to Olivia Rodrigo's Deja Vu playing while he walked onstage. How perfect is that! Bretman also presented the award for Best New Unscripted Series, which went to Selena Gomez‘s Selena + Chef.

In his closing remarks, Bretman emphasizes that "this award is for all the Asian Americans who [believe] in me, all the Pacific Islanders, and most importantly, this is for all the LGBTQ community."

"But it's all worth it because I'm here onstage accepting this award."
