Karrueche Tran, Shad Moss, BET President Directly Address Blue Ivy Comment

Published

Karrueche Tran took to Instagram on Tuesday evening to post a heartfelt apology for the comment she made about Blue Ivy’s hair.

“Past two days have been extremely draining.. As I geared up for a big day for myself – hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way.. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies BeyHive.”

Tran came under fire this week for making a joke about Beyonce and Jay Z’s two-year-old daughter. Chris Brown’s girlfriend was hosting BET’s 106 & Park on Monday and when doing the “Top 6 Things Blue Ivy Thought About The VMAs” list, Karrueche read number six straight from the teleprompter which read: “I really did wake up like this because my parents never comb my hair. Sorry Blue. I love you,” Tran stated.

The show’s host, Shad Moss also took to Instagram on Tuesday to not only defend Tran but to clarify rumors that the show is being canceled.

“No, we are not getting suspended. We are not going off of air. We are currently on hiatus that is why you haven’t seen me on the show as of late because I’ve been using my time to film for CSI.”

“Everybody makes mistakes in life. You live you learn, ain’t nobody perfect. I ain’t perfect. She was just reading the teleprompter doing what she thought she was supposed to do,” Moss said. “So naw, we ain’t cancelling. We coming back bigger than ever.”

Shad also went on record to say if he were in Tran’s shoes, he would not have read it.

BET President Stephen Hill also apologized to fans via Twitter, writing:

“Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. We apologize publicly 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.”

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
