Comedian Jerry Seinfeld didn't want to give Kesha a hug because he didn't know who she was. The singer is pictured June 5, 2017 in Washington, D.C. Getty Images

“Tik Tok” singer was in for a rude awakening Monday when comedian Jerry Seinfeld refused to hug her at the National Night of Laughter and Song event at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. when he was in the middle of an interview with radio host Tommy McFly. Seinfeld didn’t know who she was, and neither did millions of Google search users.

Kesha’s name was the second that popped up on Google autofill Wednesday when the phrase “who is” was typed into the search engine. The first was Savitar, the fictional supervillain from DC Comics. “Who is Kesha” yielded about 30,200,000 results, according to Google’s search engine Wednesday.

On Twitter, there was a similar response. Some people who wrote “Who is Kesha” genuinely didn’t know who the singer was, others were commenting about Seinfeld not knowing who she was.

Despite getting dissed by the comedian, the 30-year-old singer didn’t let it ruin her night. The star took to Instagram to gush about the event to her 2 million followers.

“Lots to smile about i'm very happy i got to perform tonight with my buddy who is kind and humble and talented @murkanpianist !!!!!!! ben folds is my f---in hero ,” she wrote Tuesday. “being talented and nice is the winning combo, and more rare than you'd think. i'm so grateful he always makes me feel good about myself. and my voice. love love love love love”

“Always an honor and a reoccurring dream come true. thank you buddy,” she captioned a picture of herself with musician Ben Folds. “i used to sneak into Ben Folds shows when i was 15 years old and stand way in the back and scream every word at the top of my lungs. i climbed really really tall chain link dangerous fences. i greased door men. i lost shoes and drove hours over state lines on school nights to catch a glimpse of this legend. can't believe he's my friend. and such a wonderful soul. some say that you shouldn't meet your hero's. sometimes that's true. not in this case. i couldn't have been more lucky. thanks for tonight.”

She seemingly made a quick recovery from the awkward moment with Seinfeld. “I'm Kesha, I love you so much,” she said. “Can I give you a hug?”

But Seinfeld, 63, wasn’t having it. “No, thanks,” he said.

The singer tried again, possibly assuming he was joking. “Please? A little one?” she asked.

“Yeah, no thanks,” Seinfeld said, taking a step back. The comedian told McFly he had no idea who Kesha was. “Well, I wish her the best,” he told the interviewer.

Seinfeld didn’t issue a public statement about the incident on Twitter.
