You guys, the Beygency is not happy right now. Following Beyoncé’s memorable and tear-inducing performance at the 2014 VMAs — where she was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — BET’s 106 & Park aired a segment entitled, "Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought About the VMAs,” where they poked fun at Bey and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy. Oh no they didn’t.
One of the jokes that turned Twitter into a warzone was specifically about Blue’s curly hair. That’s right, ya’ll! Haters still can’t get past this 2-year-old’s uncombed hair (never forget the Change.org petition!), and it sent the BeyHive in a swarming fury.
Unfortunately, Chris Brown’s on-and-off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran — who was a guest host on BET’s show — recited the one-liner saying, “I really did wake up like this because my parents never combed my hair.”
She was, however, quick to add, "Sorry, Blue! I love you!" But apparently that wasn’t enough to calm the Beygency, which quickly took to social media to not only slam Karrueche, but BET as well.
What’s more, not only did the network suspend one of its producers, but the network’s president of music programming and specials, Stephen G. Hill, took to Twitter in a four-part tweet to apologize for the tasteless joke.
“Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. We apologize publically [sic] to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible,” he wrote.
“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.”
You guys, if there is one lesson we should take away from all of this, it’s don’t upset the Beygency.
