Celebrities Aren't Our Death Threat Punching Bags

No matter how awful of a person you think a celebrity is -- no matter how heinous they act, or how annoying they can be, there's one thing that's certain: death threats are NEVER OK.

After Karrueche Tran made that awful, unacceptable joke about poor little Blue Ivy on BET's "106 & Park," we learned that the joke was added in right before the live show began. People got mad, and that should have been the end, but no. 

No, Karrueche is getting far too much hate right now. Here's a message from her Instagram:

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 #BeyHive 

Now see, this is just sad now. Even if she had known about the Blue Ivy comments beforehand, and even if she wrote the "joke" herself, death threats are completely uncalled for. Like, she could have, god forbid, teased Blue Ivy to her adorable little face about her hair, and yes, that would be so very awful, but death threats? Nope, still unacceptable. 

When are people going to learn that just because someone says something you disagree with, that's not a viable reason for them to die?

LEAVE THE YOUNG LADY ALONE, OTHER PEOPLE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN COMMENTED ON AND LIFE GOES ON, JUST B/C IT IS J AND B BABY DOES NOT MEAN THAT SHE IS THE GOLDEN CHILD. THE TRUTH IS SOME PEOPLE LIKE THE WAY THE BABY HAIR LOOK AND SOME DON'T. GET OVER IT, TO MUCH GOING ON THE WORLD TO WORRY ABOUT A CHILD'S HAIR. IT IS NOT THAT IMPORTANT, LET CONCENTRATE ON THINGS THAT ARE REALLY IMPORTANT AND MATTER IN THE WORLD, CAUSE TRULY THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. ALWAYS REMEMBER PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO THEIR OWN OPINION AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT

1) Her co-host was smart enough to even back down from that...walking away from her and saying "I can't..."

2) IF BET had her read something like "Chris Brown is a bi-polar, absuser and user of women", she would NOT have read that, regardless of what they "told" her to read.

3) CB set up that 'opportunity' for her to co-host the show. So basically, being a man's concubine/dog will open doors for you and overshadow those with real experience for "said job".

4) Death threats are never ok but she deserves the harsh criticism and very few will receive her apology well. APOLOGY IS POLICY.

5) BET put her on the spot because they had an issue with Beyonce and JayZ not attending their awards show and they chose someone STUPID enough to deliver the "JAB" to shame them. She was stupid enough to fall for it.

6) Calling this girl a "celebrity" is what's wrong with media like yours and others...giving 'fame' to whores and those who capitalize from indecency.

Dear Karrueche:
Was the joke appropriate? No
Should BET have scripted it? No
Should you have read it? No
Is your apology genuine? No
Why do I think so? That apology should have been the first thing you typed after the show the first post you sent; not the 'I didn't write this script y'all LOL" you should have accepted blame straight away.
Why did you apologise? You're Just trying to stay relevant then again why not? It's how you pay your bills. You must put every effort into your relevance it's your career
Why did you start the apology by saying how draining the effects of your joke have on you. You are not the victim never at any stage in your public life have you ever been a victim; Not Chris' Not Rihanna's not the Beyhive you are a master player in that game.
You want what you want you go after by any means necessary. I don't think that you're wrong to go after what you want . The problem is you're so busy try to prove otherwise but you're so apparent s that's why the hate

This is going too far. Writing junk like this is worse than high school. It was just a joke, stupid words. Let it go already. That little girl isn't even old enough to understand this so why keep this junk going. It's disgusting what lengths publications will go to make money.

I am not a fan of this chick I think she is just using Chris Brown but she has to make her money some how but she could have said i don't want to read that but she did anyway so she should take the blame you have a mind of your own sometime you have to use it.So take it like a big girl and move on from it and she is far from a celebrity she CB's girlfriend when he want to claim her.

The so-called #BEYHIVE worships Beyonce like she's a f'ing god and that girl could give 0 f-cks about you people that mean absolutely nothing to her! WE CAN ALL SEE THAT THAT LITTLE NEEDS HER HAIR DONE....that ain't news and I'm sure BET ain't the only folks that want to say something about it! You can clearly see that she was reading from the teleprompter but the worshippers always take ish left field!

1) Karrueche Tran is NOT a celebrity!
2) It was a joke and a funny one at that!
3) Get over it!

106 and Park was created for hip hop viewers because they had no other venue to showcase their "black hip hop" music. So you put a non-black women with no experience as a hostess and the first thing she does is talk negatively about black hair. Then the network said she didn't know, but she reads English right, she had a choice not to read that nonsense, but she anyway. It was not only negativity toward Blue Ivy, it was toward black women in general.

Number one as a host of any talk show you never talk about someone's child, number two think before you say something about a child, three have common sense. Their are a lot of kids in this world not saying because it's Bey and Jay Z child but it was uncall for because not only is she beautiful, she precious.

Since Beyonce likes to subject us to pictures of her kid I feel we have a right to comment on the appearance of said kid.

First of all, Blue Ivy is Beautiful!!! YOU KNOW IT, I KNOW IT, AND EVERYONE ELSE KNOWS IT!!!! Is her hair nappy? Yes!!! It's supposed to be nappy!! She is Black and her Mother chooses to let her wear it that way. My hair is nappy too and I don't care if you don't like it!!!! I like it, and YOU DON'T HAVE TO!!!

I personally love this girl for being a ride and die bit**... Too bad CB doesn't care for her.

People sure get all excited about nothing.

Cast of characters: CB's jump off, a baby and bunch of Cheetoh chomping fatties with Twitter accounts making "death threats".

Too bad TW's internet backbone didn't stay down for about two days. Think of all the pointless hate that would have rendered impotent.

THE WORLD WE LIVE IN SADLY IS THIS WAY. SHOULD ANY JOKE BE MADE ABOUT A CHILD? NO BUT, DEATH THREATS BECAUSE OF THEM IS TO FAR. FIRST, B.E.T WAS WRONG FOR ALLOWING THE COMMENTS, THEY KNEW THE FOLLOWING RESULTS WOULD OCCUR AND MS. TRAN DOING WHAT MOST DO FOR FAME, JUST FOLLOWED THERE DIRECTION, IM NOT KNOCKING MS TRAN, ITS FINE IF PEOPLE WANT FAME, ITS THERE LIFE AND B.E.T AND MTV AND ALL THESE NETWORKS KNOW PEOPLE WILL DO WHATEVER FOR IT. MS. TRAN DIDNT HAVE A DAY OR 2 TO PONDER THIS OR IF SHE DID DIDNT DO SO. ITS A BABY/CHILD, NOT AN ADULT, ALL WHO MAKE FUNOF BEYONCE AND JAY Z'S BABY SHOULD BE ASHAMED. IM NOT FANS OF THEM AS PEOPLE BUT, ID NEVER DISRESPECT THEM BY CLOWNING THERE INNOCENT BABY. WE LIVE IN A HATEFUL WORLD, A ME, ME, ME WORLD WERE ONLY I,ME SEEMS TO MATTER. B.E.T ISNT THE SAME, ITS JUST MTV IN DISGUISE. AS FOR MS. TRAN, THIS WILL DIE DOWN, ID GET A PERSONAL SORRY TO BEYONCE AND JAY Z OUT OF RESPECT TO THEM IF SHE CAN. ITS WORTH IT BECAUSE IM SURE SHE DIDNT MEAN ANY HARM TO HURT ANYONE BUT, JUST GOT CAUGHT UP IN BEING ON TV AS MOST OF US WOULD. WERE BECOMING A SOCIETY THAT WORSHIPS FAME/MONEY, WERE ALL BECOMING SLAVES TO THE NET/TV/$/FAME/SPORTS/LOOKS/ETC., AND WHEN PEOPLE SAY THEY OWE IT TO GOD, THERE NOT REFERRING TO THE RIGHT GOD, ITS THE GOD THAT ALLOWS THERE EVIL TO BE OK, NOT THE TRUE GOD. IM ALSO GUILTY, NOT JUDGING. WE GOT TO DO BETTER!!!!
