The ridiculous remark unquestionably upset the fans of Beyonce, Jay Z and their two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. They instantly condemned the Tran for deriding the adorable baby.

“Sorry Blue, I love you,” regretted the 26-year-old after uttering the so-called joke. But her apology was not accepted by the fans and they swarmed to social media to criticize the ignominious joke.

“Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol,” tweeted Tran.

According to Christian Post, Tran continued to receive death threats despite apologizing on various networking sites including Twitter and Instagram.

“Past two days have been extremely draining…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 anyway and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyonce…yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes…but all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot,” explained and apologized Tran via Instagram

“Definitely a lesson learned from here forth. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies #Beyhive,” wrote Tran.

“Karrueche Tran making fun of Blue Ivy’s VMA hair is a testament to not only her irrelevance, but her desperation! Lmao,” wrote Twitter user @caitlynanala

“The fact that BET had @karrueche throw a jab at blue ivy’s hair on 106&park. & they wonder why they can’t get Beyoncé to perform live,” commented @briiitea.

“As a human being w/ a brain, it’s also a bit worrying that @Karrueche would bully 2-year-old Blue

Ivy on @BET. You are not a puppet, right?”questioned @KennethWareJr.

“Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyoncé and Blue Ivy! I didn’t write this script y’all lol,”later following it up with, “I am definitely team #BeyHive,” responded Tran in an effort to shield herself form the backfire.

A source close to Tran told TMZ she simply read the lines off the teleprompter. She persevere she didn’t spot the joke beforehand and was embarrassed afterwards. Tran, in fact, loves the Blue Ivy’s hairstyle. “I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair.’ admitted Tran Speaking to TMZ,

BET President Stephen Hill apologized via social media and revealed that he has taken the prompt action against the remark.

“Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. “We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible (sic).” It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future.  “Oh, and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position,” posted Hill on Twitter.
