She may only be two-years-old but she’s clearly got a very loyal following.
Unfortunately Karrueche Tran found this out the hard way following an ill advised joke made about Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter’s hair.
The 26-year-old on-again off-again girlfriend of Chris Brown took part in a skit called ‘Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs’ while making her live presenting debut on BET show 106 & Park.
Passing comment on the toddler’s hair when she joined her mum and dad on stage at the awards ceremony, Karrueche imitated Blue, saying: “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.”
Despite immediately saying after, ‘Sorry, Blue! I love you,’ it would seem that the damage had been done – with the Twittersphere promptly tweeting their distaste for the comment.
The presenter-come-model later responded via her own Twitter account, writing: Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol.”
Unfortunately, the apology and excuse weren’t enough to clear their air, leading to her publicist releasing a full blown statement on the matter.
Yep, a two-year-old has the power to prompt not one, not two but THREE apologies.
It read: “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.”
We think she’s learned her lesson.
