The Blue Ivy hair joke fallout continues.
After Chris Brown's on-again/off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran made a scripted joke while hosting BET's 106 & Park that Beyonce and Jay-Z "never comb" Blue Ivy's hair in a segment titled "All The Things Blue Ivy Thought During The VMAs," the Associated Press reports that the network has now suspended the producer.
BET President Stephen Hill also took to his personal Twitter to say that they have already privately apologized to Beyonce and Jay Z.
(1/4) Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child.— Stephen Hill (@StephenGHill) August 26, 2014
(2/4)We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible.— Stephen Hill (@StephenGHill) August 26, 2014
(3/4)It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future.— Stephen Hill (@StephenGHill) August 26, 2014
(4/4) Oh, and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position.— Stephen Hill (@StephenGHill) August 26, 2014
Karrueche, 26, who already previously tweeted that she did not write the joke, took to her own Instagram to further apologize.
"Last 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," she wrote Tuesday. "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."
