Karruche’s Blue Ivy Joke Backfires + BET Issues Apology


Karrueche Tran stepped in as a guest host for BET’s “106 and Park” Monday and made a huge mistake – she dissed little Miss Blue Ivy on national television.

Blue-Ivy-VMAsDuring her time on the show, she did a segment called “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs” and while reading the teleprompter she made a joke at the expense of Beyonce’ and Jay Z‘s toddler by saying:

“I really did wake up like this because my parents didn’t comb my hair.”

Of course this sent the Beyhive and the natural hair community into a frenzy.

Karrueche has since spoken out about the incident saying that she was only reading from a script that was written for her. She went on to say that she takes responsibility for the comment and wants to apologize to The Carters.

I understand that she technically did not write the joke, but I would’ve improvised on air. The joke was tacky and it damn sure wasn’t funny. You never make fun of a child, especially not for her hair. Ever.

Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming, took to Twitter to explain the situation to everyone who was giving Karrueche the side-eye:

BET did not air Tuesday and word on the street is that the show has been suspended for the rest of the week. Interesting…
