Karrueche’s joke about Blue Ivy’s hair not being combed at the BET Awards, was written and unknowingly put on a teleprompter for her to read.
Kae guest hosted 106 and Park on Monday and did a �Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs” segment. While reading from a teleprompter, Kae said ‘I really did wake up like this because my parents didn’t comb my hair,” which sent the bey fans in full attack mode.
Today, Karrueche finally spoke out about the incident and revealed in a statement that she was reading from a script that was revised 10 minutes before the show, however, she still takes full responsibility for the comment and would like to apologize to Jay Z and Beyonce. She also professes her love for the Carter family and dispels any rumors that may suggest that she has a problem with natural hair.
Via her rep:
Yesterday, Karrueche Tran co-hosted 106 & Park and while hosting the show she made a comment about Blue Ivy’s hair during the segment �Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought at the VMAs.” In no way did Karrueche mean to offend Blue Ivy or her parents Beyonce and Jay Z.
This was Karrueche’s first time hosting on live television. Although she had been rehearsing the script for days, there was a script change ten minutes before showtime to add coverage of the VMAs and the Mike Brown Memorial. Karrueche had not reviewed the revised script until she read it on the teleprompter.
Karrueche is taking full responsibility for the comment but wants it clear that she would not mock a child, �I am a huge Beyonce fan and I love Blue Ivy. I apologize for the comment and wish I had a chance to review the revised script so that I could have avoided participating in that segment.”
Karrueche admires girls and women who wear natural hair, �I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair. I laugh when I am nervous and when I registered what I had just said, I of course was taken aback.”
By the way, BET did not air 106 and Park today, and according to the rumor mill, it has been suspended for the rest of the week.
