Chris Brown's concubine Karrueche Tran didn't know what hit her in the hours after she poked fun at Blue Ivy, the 2-year-old daughter of pop icon Beyonce and her husband Jay Z, during a live taping of BET's 106 & Park on Monday. In Blue Ivy's voice, the 25-year-old socialite said, “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.”
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:
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.
