Popular TV channel BET has reportedly suspended a television producer for allowing Karrueche Tran tell a joke about Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter live on the network’s music video countdown show, 106 & Park this week.
The comment was made by Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche after Blue Ivy’s appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.
According to the Mirror, in a skit about the show, Karrueche said: “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.”
A source has now reportedly told the MailOnline that the decision to suspend the producer was made after the comment about the two-year-old.
Following a backlash from the Beyhive after the controversial comments, Karrueche slammed BET for letting her read out the joke about Blue Ivy’s hair from an autocue while hosting the live show.
The 26-year-old claims the script was changed at the last minute and she and her manager were also not happy about the joke, which was in poor taste.
Immediately after delivering the joke – which played on the lyrics of Beyonce’s hit single ‘Flawless’ – Karrueche apologised saying, “Sorry Blue, I love you!”
Karrueche later claimed the script had been changed following rehearsals and she’d had no choice but to read it off the teleprompter.
She told gossip site TMZ: “I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair.
