If you’re not familiar with B.Scott, the self-proclaimed “Multimedia Maven,” he’s a very popular Internet personality known for his pop culture website lovebscott.com, for his YouTube videos and his many appearances in mainstream media. With laid hair and a very reliable makeup artist, Scott is known for dressing like a woman (not in heavy makeup or over-the-top garb), but he’s also made it very clear, which he did when he started writing for Ebony as a contributing editor, that he’s still all man:

“For those of you who may not be familiar with me, don’t be confused, my dear. I’m most certainly a man, a splendiferously divine one! I like to believe as Tyra Banks once said to me when I appeared on her show, I’m “handsome and beautiful at the same time.”

It’s his very colorful personality and fan following that I’m sure pushed BET to ask him to be one of the hosts of the pre-show for yesterday’s BET Awards. However, according to Scott, he was asked at the last minute to tone down his look including his outfit and makeup. Known for his love of high heels, a BET rep allegedly told him he wasn’t allowed to wear them on the red carpet for the pre-show, and according to the Internet personality, he had to do a complete outfit change at the last minute, hence his more masculine get-up for the show and the lack of that great lip and eye makeup above. Unfortunately, being told to chill out on what makes B. Scott, B.Scott, really hurt his feelings. And according to folks on Twitter, while he continued to honor his commitment to host, Scott, known for his large personality, came off a bit “muted” and quiet. Here’s what he had to say on Twitter after confirming to his followers that he was asked to clean it up for the network at the last minute:
“Only God knows what I went through today and it’s going to stay that way”
“I wasn’t going to say anything but my spirit is truly hurt.”
“I’m sorry if I let anybody down today, I tried my best and it wasn’t enough.”
“God knows my heart, what happened and at the end of day I would not even be here if it was not for his grace.”
“My TRUE saving grace was the Procter & Gamble consultant, who said: “We at P&G do not support what they are doing to you.”
“No matter how things look, know that God is still in control. Stay in peace, knowing that He will always be with you.”
“I just want to say thank you to #mymimi, my sister, @MariahCarey for being a friend tonight. I needed it.”
Before speaking on what happened on Twitter, he put up a video lauding his makeup job, saying “I’m so f**king beat, that I don’t give a f**k who don’t like it!” Unfortunately, somebody at the network didn’t like it. While BET hasn’t responded to this as of yet, let’s hope it’s not true, because it’s absolutely foolish to invite someone to work for you, knowing how they are, and then at the last minute telling them they need to change. However, he’s got a lot of support from his fans, and celeb friends including Nicole Ari Parker and his homegirl, Mariah Carey, and such an incident isn’t going to stop him from doing big things.
No thanks
