BET apologies to fashion blogger over attire clash

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - BET is apologizing to a fashion blogger who says it made him tone down his feminine look to appear on the network's pre-awards show.

The network called the incident with B. Scott, which took place before Sunday's BET Awards, a "misunderstanding." On his blog Monday, Scott said he was told to change his outfit - a flowing black tunic and black pants - to a more conservative suit. He also said he was asked to pull his long black hair back in a ponytail and not to wear heels.

He did appear on the show in makeup and suit.

In a Monday statement to The Associated Press, BET said it embraces global diversity and blamed the dispute on "unfortunate miscommunications from both parties."

The network said it regretted any "unintentional offense."
