BET suspended a producer today after writing an offensive joke for yesterday's 106 & Park. In what’s being called "a last minute addition to the script," one of the show’s producers wrote a joke regarding Blue Ivy’s hair at the MTV Video Music Awards. The joke was written for Chris Brown’s girlfriend and 106 & Park host, Karreuche Tran, who then told the joke on the air, and is now receiving death threats from angry fans.
BET’s president of music programming and specials, Stephen Hill, publicly apologized on Twitter. “Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child,” he tweeted.
