Transgender Blogger B. Scott Loses Lawsuit Against BET Network

B. Scott sues BET Network

Hopefully transgender blogger B. Scott didn’t pre-order that new Mercedes Benz (or any other luxury vehicle). It looks like he will not be coming into millions of dollars from that anti-discrimination lawsuit he filed against BET Network.

Gossip tabloid TMZ reports Scott lost his lawsuit today.

BET hired Scott as a fashion reporter during the 2013 BET Awards last summer. But after Scott showed up tardy for his hosting gig, BET’s Stephen Hill reportedly ordered Scott to change into attire more suitable for a masculine male host.

In a post published on his blog, Scott said he was “disheartened” by BET’s attempts to tone down his flamboyant personality.

TMZ broke the story, Scott sued the network, claiming it humiliated him during the BET Awards last year by forcing him to change from women’s clothes into men’s clothes … and then yanking him off the show entirely.

But the judge in the case just ruled in the network’s favor, dismissing the lawsuit.

The judge ruled BET has the 1st Amendment right to run its shows the way it wants … and that includes ordering Scott to change from women’s to men’s clothes … and that’s that.

Scott tells TMZ, “It disheartens me that the message sent today wasn’t a message of acceptance, but rather it’s acceptable to discriminate against transgender individuals on the basis of their gender identity and expression.”

Scott’s attorney has said he plans to appeal the decision.

      Oh how sad, can he appeal, maybe he’ll get a liberal judge. BET is owned by Viacom, who also CBS and the MTV and Nickelodeon. Their pockets is too deep for Ms. Thang to be fighting.

      Thanks for the :newpost: but I have :lipssealed: as if you can’t say something nice, don’e say nothing at all.

      (Muttering) Why does everyone have to accept that you like to wear women’s clothing? I could care less who you sleep with, steal with or dress for, but you can’t force me to accept it cos that is what you choose to do…and vice versa.

      I don’t know if this case was as much about acceptance as some would like us to believe. I think it was an issue of an employer enforcing a dress code. I feel that an employer has the right to say, “If you have a dangalang, you can’t wear a dress and face full of makeup while on the clock.”

      What kinda soup you got? I have some chicken tortilla soup in the fridge that we need to finish before it gets warm. It’s fairly cold today, so it would be perfect for dinner tonight.

      dude sit down. hell i’m same sex oriented and didn’t think it was THAT big of a deal to file a lawsuit. did BET know before hiring him? Yes. Now he knows not to accept another assignment from BET or at least put in specific writing that he gets to still gets to be himself when hosting or some type compromise.

      so what, they asked you to put on a suit and remove ur make up. It wasn’t lawsuit worthy because his rights were not violated.
