Karrueche Tran was a guest co-host on BET‘s 106&Park and in normal co-hosting fashion she read from a teleprompter. Well just when Karrueche thought she had everything down pact, she read a very distasteful joke about Beyonce and Jay-z‘s daughter Blue Ivy’s hair and the gates of to hell opened up.
During a segment called The Top 6 Things Blue Ivy Thought During The VMA’s , Karrueche says “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.” The 2 year old has been the butt of many hair jokes. There was even a petition created asking Beyonce to come Blue Ivy’s hair. (Which confirms how screwed up the world actually is.)Well needless to say, heads rolled over this ignorant joke. Since the airing of the show Karrueche has been getting death threats from Beyonce’s fans.
The President of music programming for BET Stephen Hill released a public statement, stating that it is not Karrueche’s fault she was just reading what a producer wrote. 106&Park is now on hiatus. There have been reports that a producer has been fired from the show for the unnecessary drama they have caused.
Bow Wow has stated that the show is on hiatus because he is taping for CSI. As we all know Bow Wow is one of the host for the music countdown show. We have seen plenty of guest co-host come on and take over while the officials host are away doing other things. Show often take a hiatus but this is all too sudden. How convenient for BET to go on hiatus in the midst of a PR crisis.
