The death threats came fast and furious after Karrueche read a joke about Blue Ivy’s unkempt hair off BET’s teleprompter. The anti-natural hair joke — directed at a toddler by a woman who is not even black — set Black Twitter on fire.
Karrueche blamed BET, who she claims inserted the joke on a teleprompter at the last minute.
“Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol … I am definitely team #BeyHive,” Tran wrote on her Twitter page.
But when her half apology failed to sooth the savage beasts, Karrueche wrote:
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”
Also on Tuesday, BET executive Stephen G. Hill apologized via Twitter.com for BET’s role in the controversy:
Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child… We apologize publically 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.
