BET & Karrueche Tran Come for Blue Ivy (UPDATE)
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
BET is no stranger to controversy, so it’s becoming more and more clear that just maybe the network’s track record of dissing black artists is the main reason many eventually stop supporting the network.
Although Beyonce has a long history of supporting BET via the BET Awards and the BET Experience, apparently the network is salty about her critically acclaimed performance at this year’s VMAs.
Beyonce was on tour during the 2014 BET Awards, and sent the network an exclusive clip of a performance to make up for her absence. That didn’t stop BET from coming for her daughter Blue Ivy though.
Yesterday, Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran was a guest host for “106 & Park,” and in a segment entitled “The Top 6 Things Blue Ivy Thought About the VMAs,” they actually took disgusting jabs at the toddler’s natural and kinky hair.
“I really did wake up like this because my parents never comb my hair.”
Karrueche then began to laugh and stated she loves Blue Ivy and then took to Twitter to alert the BeyHive that she didn’t write the script (read tweets from bottom to top):
Of course Karrueche has been getting dragged terribly since last night, and she’s already lost lots of followers on her social media accounts.
We honestly think BET should also be held responsible because whispers around the industry are they are furious Beyonce didn’t perform, and were willing to get anyone to do their dirty work.
It’s pretty pathetic that a black network would make fun of a black child with natural hair, but we can’t say we’re surprised given BET’s track record.
UPDATE: BET has apologized on the network’s official Twitter account.
