During an episode of the BET’s 106 & Park, guest host Karrueche Tran read a scripted joke which has gotten a massive amount of backlash. In an attempt to poke fun at some of the VMA’s most memorable moments, Tran referenced the daughter of superstar couple Beyonce and Jay Z. The little girl, Blue Ivy, was present at the awards show in order to assist her father in presenting Beyonce with the Vanguard Award.

Tran joked about what the small girl was hypothetically thinking during the awards show, saying, “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.”

Ouch!

Fans of the famous family quickly took to social media to voice their outrage.

The awkward joke was in response to Blue Ivy’s hair at the VMA awards, which she attended with her famous parents.

Since Tran read the scripted joke, both she and BET have apologized profusely. But that wasn’t good enough for Beyonce and Jay Z, who apparently can’t take a joke. 106 & Park has been cancelled for a week and punitive action has been taken against the person responsible for writing the joke.

Was it distasteful to suggest that Beyonce and Jay Z don’t properly care for their child? Yes. In all actuality, she probably has a team of nannies who cater to her every whim. She is probably a very well taken care of little girl. The fact of the matter is that if you don’t want the whole world talking about your kid, then don’t thrust them into the spotlight. Don’t use them as a shameless publicity stunt to show the world that you’re a perfect, happy family.

The real people to blame in this situation are Blue Ivy’s parents, Beyonce and Jay Z. There is no surer way to corrupt your child than to make them famous. Plenty of celebrities choose to keep their children out of the limelight, but not these two.
