Karrueche Tran is in big trouble! But it’s not her fault!
The on-air personality appeared on BET’s 106 & Park to do a skit called “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs.”
At the top of the list, let’s just say it did not go over well with Bey’s fans. (see below)
Imitating 2-year-old Blue Ivy, Karrueche said, “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.” Right after that comment, the model giggled and said, “Sorry, Blue! I love you!”
Oh yeah! They went there.
Later, the on and again off again girlfriend of Chris Brown took to Twitter to apologize, saying:”Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol.”
Evidently that didn’t cut it with the peanut gallery, so Tran’s publicist released this statement earlier today:
Yesterday, Karrueche Tran co-hosted 106 & Park and while hosting the show, she made a comment about Blue Ivy’s hair during the segment “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought at the VMAs”. In no way did Karrueche mean to offend Blue Ivy or her parents, Beyoncé and Jay Z.
This was Karrueche’s first time hosting on live television. Although she had been rehearsing the script for days, there was a script change ten minutes before showtime to add coverage of the VMAs and the Mike Brown Memorial. Karrueche had not reviewed the revised script until she read it on the teleprompter.
Karrueche is taking full responsibility for the comment but wants it clear that she would not mock a child, “I am a huge Beyonce fan and I love Blue Ivy. I apologize for the comment and wish I had a chance to review the revised script so that I could have avoided participating in that segment.”
Karrueche admires girls and women who wear natural hair, “I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair. I laugh when I am nervous and when I registered what I had just said, I of course was taken aback.”
Stephen G. Hill, president of music programming and specials for BET Networks also took to Twitter to apologize for the segment and defend Karrueche. He also mentioned that he reached out to Bey and Jay privately to apologize.
“Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible.It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future. Oh, and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position,” Hill wrote.
I don’t know, it seems to me like BET was throwing jabs at the famous family for dissing them and not showing up at the last BET Awards. Hmmm, but you aint heard it from me.
What is your take? Did Bey fans make a big deal out of nothing?! Let’s talk about it in the comments below.
