BET has suspended the 106 & Park producer who was responsible for the joke about Blue Ivy’s hair that was delivered by Karrueche Tran on the episode that aired Monday.'

BET Producer Suspended

The joke about Blue Ivy’s hair that got the producer suspended came in the segment of the show in which the hosts considered what Jay Z and Beyoncé’s daughter was thinking while up on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. Guest host Tran quipped, impersonating the 2-year-old, “I really did wake up like this because my parents never comb my hair.”

The comment uttered by Tran sparked outrage, most notably from Beyonce’s devoted fanbase.

In response to the backlash, BET’s president of music programming and specials Stephen Hill took to Twitter to apologize in a series of four tweets in which he also absolves Chris Brown’s girlfriend of any blame in the unfortunate incident.

In addition to his statement on Twitter, Hill has reportedly reached out to Jay Z and Beyonce to apologize.

Tran, happy to be off the hook for the joke at the toddler's expense, took to Twitter to reiterate that she's a big fan of the music power couple – and their young daughter.
