BET DISCRIMINATES AGAINST B. SCOTT AT BET AWARDS
Multimedia maven and gay icon B.Scott was the subject of disheartening discrimination at the hands of entertainment network BET over the weekend at the 2013 BET awards. B. Scott was on the pre-show red carpet as a fashion correspondent looking noticeably different and more masculine from his regular get up. B. Scott later explain on Twitter that BET had made him wear lesser makeup, flats (shoes), and pull his long straightened hair back into a ponytail last minute which is why he didn’t appear on the pre-show program for a longer period of time and also why his outfit in the later segments had changed from the one he wore in the earlier part of the show. B. Scott also explained in an open-letter that BET had previously approved of him wearing his usual feminine style and makeup before hand and was shocked to have to completely change his outfit last minute. B.Scott has gained support from many fans, gay rights group GLAAD, and other gay rights advocates since reveling this terrible situation. BET has since released a statement regarding this situation explaining it was merely a “miscommunication” and they meant no harm to B. Scott in anyway. B. Scott has dismissed BET’s so called apology stating he feels “hurt” and embarrassed” at how he was treated by the network. My opinion? BET asked for B. Scott and they knew what they were getting in the beginning with B. Scott so why the confusion? B. Scott has always been flamboyant and forward in his fashion choices and he has also appeared on many other BET shows dressing the way he normally does without any issues from them then so why now? It dose not matter if you like the way B. Scott dresses or is if you ask for someone or something except to get what you ask for. I feel sorry that B. Scott had to go though such unprofessionalism from BET and hope that this matter could have been handled differently. Moving forward I hope BET can understand whole heartedly to not ask for what they truly don’t want again.
