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.

Tamar Braxton is known for her flamboyant personality, soaring vocals and diva hair-do’s, but underneath those wigs and weaves the “Love & War” singer was struggling with a balding hairline. During the premiere episode of “Braxton Family Values” last week, the Internet erupted with memes that poked fun at Tamar’s edges, but it was her former enemy, K. Michelle, who really put the nail in the coffin.
“Looking out to heavens thanking God for everything. This fame stuff is cool sometimes, but the TRUE blessing is that I have all of my edges,” K. Michelle wrote on Instagram, “Oh, and I don’t have to steal my cable anymore. Laugh it’s good for u,” she added. Since she didn’t mention names, we can’t confirm that she was talking about Tamar, but given their history and the timeliness of “BVF,” we think it’s safe to say K. Michelle had a little fun at Tamar’s expense.
Tamar responded to the Internet on Instagram, saying: When u HAVE your baby …(my son) your hair falls out!! Thanks to @simplicityhairoil for my hairline coming back! But if it didn’t work I would BUY me some. Glad you all get to see the changes while #bfv & #T&V on T.V.
