GLAAD Supports Openly Gay Blogger B. Scott, BET Releases Statement Following Backlash!



On Monday we told you about popular blogger and online personality B. Scott and the discrimination he faced after being hired to host the red carpet pre-show at the 2013 BET Awards Show Sunday night.

Not only has B. Scott gone on to tell his story of what really took place on his own site, GLADD has now come forward, reaching out to the network, to gain some clarification on what really took place.

As a result and perhaps fear of even more negative backlash and ridicule, BET has released this statement,

“BET Networks embraces global diversity in all its forms and seeks to maintain an inclusive workforce and a culture that values all perspectives and backgrounds. The incident with B. Scott was a singular one with a series of unfortunate miscommunications from both parties.  We regret any unintentional offense to B. Scott and anyone within the LGBT community and we seek to continue embracing all gender expressions.”

Do you think BET’s statement is sufficient or just a poor attempt at issuing an apology?
