Commentator rejects BET apology over attire clash



Published: Wed, July 3, 2013 @ 2:17 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — A TV personality who says BET forced him to tone down his typically feminine look to appear on its pre-awards show is rejecting the network's apology.

BET was contrite after B. Scott, an openly gay fashion and advice columnist who has several television shows and a Web following, said the network yanked him off its red carpet coverage for Sunday's BET Awards and forced him to change from heels to flats and put on a suit instead of the long flowing black shirt he was wearing. He also accused them of making him pull his long flowing locks back into a ponytail.

BET said the incident "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."

But Scott, in an interview Tuesday, said the apology was half-hearted and said he was always very clear about what he planned to look like on air.

"I want a real apology from BET. This was a not a mutual misunderstanding or miscommunication. I pride myself on being very professional," he said.
