Androgynous, mystifying, and glamorous. These are just a few words that can describe the beautiful B. Scott, a famous YouTuber and pop culture blogger. B. Scott is know for trumping many media pundits and landing himself in numerous television and radio spots – all while portraying a gorgeous mix of man and woman in his look, and maintaining a lively and lovable personality.
B. Scott was asked to host a BET Awards pre-show and when he arrived, apparently the network producers asked him to tone down the fierce and kick off the heels.
Um, do they not know who the Queen is?
B. Scott took to Twitter as love muffins nationwide sent a barrage of comments to BET on their poor taste.
Only God knows what I went through today and it’s going to stay that way.

The attitude toward B. Scott’s wardrobe is perplexing, to say the least. The BET network is known to highlight accomplished Black entertainers and role models, yet it seems as if the red penalty flag will be thrown in once a man wants to show up to the red carpet in heels and makeup.
This isn’t the first time BET has run into problems. The network has long since been affiliated with justifying stereotypes and turning a blind eye to current events that directly affect the black community. In that light, perhaps Black Entertainment Television isn’t ready to embrace their gay community, even as the Supreme Court of the United States just recently ruled the 17-year-old Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and threw away California’s same-sex marriage ban.B.Scott, BET, Black Entertainment Television, LoveBScott
