Blue Ivy may be the child of two of the most famous--and, arguably, influential--people in the world, but that doesn't mean she's exempt from ridicule. The 2-year old was the subject of a joke on a recent episode of the BET show 106 & Park, and now a producer at the network has been suspended.

The joke came about during an episode that had co-host Karrueche Tran imagining what Blue Ivy was thinking during the MTV Video Music Awards, which she attended with her parents, Jay-Z and Beyonce.

"I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair," Tran said.

Although Tran didn't write the joke--which was part of a list she read on-air--she was targeted on social media by several people, prompting BET's President of Music Programming, Stephen Hill, to write a 4-part apology on Twitter.

It's not clear who the producer was or when they will be allowed to return to work.
