Karrueche

BET Made Me Diss Blue Ivy

In Tasteless Joke

Karrueche Tran is blaming BET for the fact she ripped Beyonce and Jay Z's little girl with a harsh joke about her hair while hosting "106 & Park."

The joke took a shot at Blue Ivy's hairdo and no one ever combing it -- but it quickly blew up in Karreuche's face when incensed Bey and Jay fans unleashed a vicious social media attack on her.

A source close to Chris Brown's GF tells TMZ ... she read the joke cold off a teleprompter -- it was in a script that had been changed by producers at the last-minute -- and she never saw it beforehand.

We're told ... it was a live show and KT had no choice but to read what was on the prompter. Afterward, she and her manager went nuclear because they also thought the joke -- about a 2-year-old -- was mean-spirited and in poor taste.

Karrueche tells TMZ she actually admires Blue's 'do, saying ... "I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair." She added she would never disrespect Beyonce and Blue Ivy.

BET President Stephen Hill also apologized, saying he reached out to Beyonce and Jay Z ... and has "taken punitive actions" with the producers responsible for putting Karrueche in that position.

I believe Karrueche over BET. BET has displayed self-hate and mockery of the Black community for YEARS.

Just saying, but that is no excuse.
If the prompter said to do harm to the child would she of still read it and said it's not my fault I was just reading what they wrote.

OHMYGOD!!YOU DISRESPECTED THE GREAT BEYONCE AND JAY-Z's CHILD?!? God is going to strike you down because, these days, with the way those two people are worshipped, this joke is the same thing as blasphemy. I'm sure they'll both sue this girl, BET, the host standing next to her, the camera man, the person who wrote the joke, and everybody who laughed at it. How dare thee make fun of QUEEN BEY'S daughter!!!

Yea, but had they put a joke about her being Chris Brown's next victim, I bet she wouldn't have read that. That's cruel to talk about a two year old and shame on BET too!

Insults like this must be the reason why Kim slicks her child's hair down with gel. Maybe she's afraid that someone may mistake her for being black instead of biracial.
