BET Suspends Producer After Blue Ivy Joke
NEW YORK (AP) — BET has suspended a producer after a joke about Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter that aired Monday on the network’s music video countdown show, “106 & Park.”
A source at BET, who spoke on the condition of anonymity
because the person was not allowed to discuss the matter publicly, said the producer was suspended after a remark about 2-year-old Blue Ivy’s hair.
On Monday’s show during a segment about Blue Ivy’s hypothetical thoughts during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, guest host Karrueche Tran said: “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.” Blue Ivy joined her mother onstage at the VMAs.
Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials, publicly apologized on Twitter.
“Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child,” Hill tweeted.
Hill also said the network privately apologized to Beyonce and Jay Z.

I think it’s because the coverage and attention geared towards the Micheal Brown thing.
I promise I was thinking the same thing…just making the producer the fall guy.
B’s dad spoke out today & said the elevator incident was a publicity stunt to boost tickets sells for the tour
They mad cuz B will perform at the VMA’s vs the BET awards..lol
something is not right. a company big as BET wouldn’t let a mistake like that happen. it’s more to it but they are covering it up!
It’s time for someone to honor their oaths.
