Blue Ivy Joke Gets TV Producer Suspended

'106 & Park' professional reprimanded for publicly debated comment about Beyonce's daughter's hair

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Roaming Show

BET has suspended a producer after a joke about Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter that aired Monday on the network’s music video countdown show, “106 & Park,” reports the Associated Press. A source at the network, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to discuss the matter publicly, said the producer was suspended after a remark about 2-year-old Blue Ivy’s hair.

On Monday’s show during a segment about Blue Ivy’s hypothetical thoughts during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, guest host Karrueche Tran said: “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.” Blue Ivy joined her mother onstage at the VMAs.
