BET announced that it has suspended a producer over a joke about Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter’s hair that aired last Monday on “106 & Park.” The producer inserted the last minute joke in the teleprompter that was ultimately read by an unassuming Karrueche Tran. The comments were 2-year old Blue Ivy’s supposed thoughts while at the VMA’s, “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair,” were met with HUGE backlash at Karrueche, BET and everyone remotely involved.
Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials, tweeted that it was not Tran’s fault and continued with an apology on behalf of the network. “Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child,….We also apologize to her for putting her in that position,” he wrote.
