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 the network, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to discuss the matter publicly, said the producer was suspended after an on-air 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. BET didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.
