106 & Park Off For A Week After Blue Ivy Joke, Twitter Slander Commences [Photos]
BET’s 106 & Park is off the air for the rest of the week, after the network aired a joke about Blue Ivy Carter’s hair yesterday (Aug. 25). Sources tell Hip-Hop Wired that a show producer has been fired, but the show’s hiatus was planned before the Blue Ivy fallout, according to XXL.
Guest-host Karreuche Tran read the hair quip, but the network’s President of Music Programming, Stephen Hill said today that BET takes full responsibility for writing the insensitive joke.
Tran was basically ripped to shreds on Twitter, even after she explained that she was only reading a teleprompter. “Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol,” she tweeted. “I am definitely team #BeyHive .”
The BeyHive was already in full attack mode by that time, and they’re still going. A struggle petition has been started to deport her — even though she’s American. The petition reads:
Karrueche Tran violated the number one code of the BeyHive Law. “Thou should never come for Blue Ivy!” In a tasteless attempt on a national syndicated television show Ms. Tran made a diss towards America’s Princess of the Carter thrown. And we the BeyAgency demands her deportation effective immediately.
Yes, that happened.
So, while Chris Brown’s lady is still recovering from the social media slaughtering, 106 & Park is now in the line of fire, and trending worldwide.
