Karrueche Tran’s Diss To Blue Ivy — BET Producer Suspended
The producer of 106 & Park has been suspended after a joke on the show was offensive to 2-year-old, Blue Ivy, the Associated Press reports.
“I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair,” Karrueche said as a joke during a skit titled, “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs.” She followed it up with, “Sorry Blue! I love you,” but the damage was already done.
Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials, publicly apologized on Twitter on Aug. 26. “Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child,” he wrote. “We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible. It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future. Oh, and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position.”
Karrueche Defends Herself After Attacks
Of course, people are pointing the finger at Karrueche, and she’s even received death wishes on social media. She tweeted “Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol,” followed by, “I am definitely team #BeyHive.”
However, that wasn’t enough. She then shared a photo of herself on Aug. 26, with the following caption:
Past two days have been extremely draining.. As I geared up for a big day for myself – hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way.. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies ❤️ #BeyHive
