Karrueche Tran came under fire by the Beyhive after reciting a tasteless joke about Beyoncé and Jay Z’s 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy‘s, hair.
In case you missed it, Karrueche made an appearance on BET’s 106 & Park on Monday, where a segment was recorded that included a list of the “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs.”
“‘I really did wake up like this, because my parents never combed my hair,'” Karrueche said as they reached number 6, and then laughed saying; “Sorry, Blue! I love you!”
Since the show aired, Beyoncé’s fans have come out in full force to express their disdain over the joke — and in an apology Karrueche issued on Instagram, along with the above pic, she says that her comments “have been in complete shambles.”
She goes on to apologize to anyone who felt offended in anyway; adding that anyone that knows her knows she loves Beyoncé.
Past two days have been extremely draining.. As I geared up for a big day for myself – hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way.. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies
Stephen G. Hill, president of music programming and specials for BET Networks, also apologized for the incident, saying that “it was in very bad judgment.” He tweeted:
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.
According to TMZ, a source close to Karrueche says she read the joke off a teleprompter, in a script that had been changed by producers at the last-minute. They’re told that afterward, she and her manager were upset because they also thought the joke was mean-spirited and in poor taste.
