• Did Blue Ivy Shut Down 106 & Park ??

    Looks like the Blue Ivy hair joke went to far this past Monday.  BET did not air 106 and Park today, and may have been suspended for the rest of the week.   Here’s why


    Via Karrueche’s rep

    Monday, Karrueche Tran co-hosted 106 & Park and while hosting the show she made a comment about Blue Ivy’s hair during the segment “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought at the VMAs.” In no way did Karrueche mean to offend Blue Ivy or her parents Beyonce and Jay Z.This was Karrueche’s first time hosting on live television. Although she had been rehearsing the script for days, there was a script change ten minutes before showtime to add coverage of the VMAs and the Mike Brown Memorial. Karrueche had not reviewed the revised script until she read it on the teleprompter.

    Karrueche is taking full responsibility for the comment but wants it clear that she would not mock a child, “I am a huge Beyonce fan and I love Blue Ivy. I apologize for the comment and wish I had a chance to review the revised script so that I could have avoided participating in that segment.”

    Karrueche admires girls and women who wear natural hair, “I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair. I laugh when I am nervous and when I registered what I had just said, I of course was taken aback.”

     

    Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming apologies to The Carters & Karrueche  via  Twitter :

    Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. 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.

    The next 4 tweets should be read as one.
