106 & PARK OFF AIR FOR ONE WEEK AFTER BLUE IVEY COMMENT
Rumor “had” it that Karrueche Tran (Chris Brown’s on and off again girlfriend) would be next in line for a co- hosting position on the hit BET show 106 & Park. However after this, i’m not too sure. Her comments have gotten the long time show suspended and is not expected to return until September 8th.
Karrueche appeared on 106 this week and apparently read a joke off a teleprompter about Blue Ivey’s hair. The joke poked fun at the hip hop princess during a game of “What Blue Ivey was thinking at the VMA’s”. Twitter went in and slammed the model for hours. Although she apologized it wasn’t enough for the Beyhive who even sent death threats.
The President of music programming and specials, Stephan Hill also issued a public apology on twitter. Hill took full responsibility for the joke gone wrong and said it wasn’t Karrueche’s fault. Karruche says she didn’t make the script and didn’t have a chance to review it before going live. She admits to being a Beyonce fan and loving Blue Ivey!
This isn’t the first controversy over Blue Ivey’s hair. A couple months ago a woman started a petition on change.org to get Blue Ivey’s hair combed because she rocks a “natural look”. Did the network set her up? Or was it just a joke gone to far? Check out the video below!!
