not jason derulo at met gala

*Social media somehow began circulating the above picture of a man taking a hard, embarrassing fall on a red carpet, and for some reason identified him as Jason Derulo taking a tumble at last night’s Met Gala in NYC.

While Twitter and Instagram were busy going in…

…it turns out Derulo was in Los Angeles Monday night, nowhere near New York – and made it quite clear on Instagram.

Also, the guy in the white suit is Caucasian…with shaggy black hair.

And the red carpet was from Cannes in 2011.
