Burkettiquette is defined as uninvited intrusion into an acceptance speech either not yet or having just begun by an honoree. Although similar to being Kanyed, this interruption is marked not by dissatisfaction with the honoree being chosen so much as it is to spite the honoree due to once having involvement in the project for which the honor is being bestowed but instead feeling entitled to speak on the project's behalf.
