A comedian has apologized after catching flak for insulting the looks of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy.
The #BeyHive came for Funky Dineva with the quickness after he called the seven-year-old “ugly.” Now, he’s backing down, saying his controversial comments were made “in character” but were “gross” considering that he’s a “grown-ass man” and she’s a “defenseless” child.
Dineva says, “I’m upset with myself. I've said some off-the-wall things before in the name of comedy, and I've stood by them all and defended them all, and told the general public, you know, 'Forget you. You're just gonna have to be mad.' But this is one of those things that I'm not proud of. I can't stand in this one.”
He hopes fans will forgive him and promises he will take care to "be a better wordsmith when it comes to people's children."
