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