The other day BET and Karrueche Tran caught a lot of backlash after Karrueche read a distasteful joke on air about Blue Ivy’s hair, and the network was forced to apologize and even suspend one of the producers of “106 & Park.” It was also rumored that the incident is the reason the show is on a hiatus for the rest of the week, but Bow Wow is downplaying that the incident is the cause behind the show’s hiatus.
In Instagram videos, he says:
“Nah man, y’all crazy. No, we’re not getting suspended, we’re not going off the air. We’re on hiatus, that’s why you haven’t seen me on the show as of late because I’ve been using my time to actually fllm for CSI. So I just wanted to go ahead and clear that up for everybody out there not knowing the truth.
“We all pull our pants up the same, you know what I mean? Everybody talk about everybody. ‘The View,’ you know what I mean? ‘First Take.’ When Stephen A. Smith said what he said, they didn’t suspend the whole show. They just dealt with Stephen A. Smith. We ain’t going on a hiatus because of Karrueche either. We’re doing what we do every fall.”
Rumor has it BET is working overtime to make sure people don’t correlate the show’s hiatus to the Blue Ivy drama.
Karrueche claims she had no choice but to read the teleprompter and go through with the joke, but Bow Wow said that if he was in Karrueche’s shoes that day, he would not have read the joke on air:
“Now a brother like me? Would I have read that sh*t? Hell nah! Nope! Uh-uh. Wouldn’t have did it. Nope! Uh-uh! Nope! Not on duty.”
