On Monday night, Beyoncé fans began a shady assault against Chris Brown's girlfriend, Karrueche Tran after she read another horrible joke about The Carters daughter, Blue Ivy.
The segment aired on BET’s 106 & Park, in which they discussed the “top six things Blue Ivy thought about the VMAs.” Kollege Park read the following from a teleprompter, “really did wake up like this because my parents never combed my hair," After she read the joke she beginlaughing and then quickly said, "Sorry, Blue! I love you!”
The damage was already done because, one fans video of the incident went viral and sent everyone into full attack mode against Karrueche and the entire network. The internet acted up and I loved every minute of it.
At the end of the day, this child was at the VMAS watching her mom kill it and be recognized for her hard work and BET, clearly you’re still mad that Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment sent you a YouTube video to play at your award show. Get over it!
Now we all know this isn’t the first time Blue Ivy and her parents have been criticized for her hair. Remember the “Comb her hair.” petition I talked about? If not, read my rant here. People are more outraged this time because a network called, BLACK ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK would stoop this low and approve a joke shaming the natural hair of a toddler. WHY DO Y’ALL CARE ABOUT HER HAIR? At least her edges will be in tact when she gets older! I’ve never seen another celebrities child’s hair be criticized in such a vile and disrespectful way. It’s mean and to do it in such a public way is really unforgivable.
Stephen G. Hill, president of music programming and specials for BET Networks, took to Twitter on Tuesday, to apologize for the segment and he also defended Karrueche, who didn’t write the joke and was reading the line live. He went on to mention that he reached out to The Carters privately to apologize. Karrueche apologized last night after her mentions became too much to handle.
And I’m sure that GIF sums up how Beyonce and Jay-Z feel because the joke should have never been wrote. As a major network, why go there? Leave those insults to be written by internet trolls and comedians who are brave enough to talk about The Carters daughter.
In the end, it looks like Blue grabbed her iPhone 9, (yes 9, you know she’s ahead of the game) and had 106 yanked from the air because according to the rumor mill, the show has been suspended for the rest of the week. Also, I’m pretty certain this rules out any chance of Beyonce or Jay-Z EVER attending or performing at any future BET Awards. They will have to give them a lifetime achievement award before they show up again. So, great job on being petty, BET. You’ve successfully paid the ULTIMATE price by going against the throne because things went so well for Keri Hilson.
