BET Changes Their Teairra Mari Ban Tune?

We broke the story last week that Teairra Mari's camp was upset about BET giving them an extra hard time about playing the new
"Sponsor" video ft. Soulja Boy.  And now we've learned that BET is folding under the pressure and outrage of people screaming that this is an unfair double standard of male vs. female artists.

 

The details when you read on...

 

We were told by a source from Teairra's camp that after YBF's post about this issue, BET reached out to them about the situation.  While there was no official ban, there was indeed a blatant choice made by the powers-that-be to not play the video.  But we're told Teairra's camp was contacted late last week, for the first time even though the video has been out for several weeks, about "walking her video on" to "106 & Park".  And she will also be allowed to explain the message she was actually conveying in the video.

It looks like somebody's doing some damage control.  We'll see if Teairra accepts their offer...

(I wonder how long it will take for people to see that ALL artist/labels PAY for their placement on the "Top 10"?? Payola keeps BET's broke ass lights on in the studio. Surprise, your votes mean nothing.)

BET aired the video today. If

BET aired the video today. If you watch the video at the end she purchases her own things. I no the concept of the song doesn't portray that but most of the videos today have the same concept. Sex, money and cars. Now how could they have a problem with that video are the words to the song when you have Rhianna singing...."Rude Boy"....If you are BIG ENOUGH!!!!! TAKE IT! TAKE IT! LOVE ME! LOVE ME! Better yet if the Powers to Be are so concern about image to young girls why have your Host who has been on several internet sites for over a year where she was sleeping with another "WOMAN'S HUSBAND". Please stop the FOOLYWANG BET. If your going to judge Ms. Debra, judge everybody.

BET is a trip!!!!! They had 2 new joints today, one being Sponsor. They played Sponsor at the beginning of the show so that if you missed it, you just did. Then they gave you the TXT number you can txt to vote only twice. Mind you it's not on the ONLINE voting poll http://www.bet.com/OnTV/BETShows/106andpark/106_Vote_Poll.htm The 2nd new joint was Wacka Flocka's Remix with Diddy. HIS NEW JOINT IS ON THE ONLINE VOTING LIST AND THEY GAVE OUT THE TXT. BET has OFFICIALLY showed me that it's really RET--Rap Entertainment Tv! Who will remember Teairra's txt tomorrow? But Wacka has his online to vote for just in case ya'll missed it! BET, u r trash! Let me stay my ass on TVONE! Teairra thanks for attempting to shine light on this double standard and favortism. SOOOO done with Wack a$$ RET!

Dear Bet AkA EBT, If the piece of shit powers that be at that degrading station are reading this I would like to take the timeout and say FUCK YOU! I am 22 years old and I find your programing to be vial and gross. Weather someone is singing about being sponserd should be the least of your worries. You have that smut rocsi as a cohost she's ugly a home wrecker and some ball player snatched the car she spread her legs for right from under her. Then you have the biggest cornball next to nick cannon as the other host! I stopped watching EBT years ago ever since that lady took over after bob jonhson and you sold out to viacom which also runs mtv and vh1 did you really things were going to be the same? The Boondocks were right BET AKA EBT IS EVIL AND APART OF THE PROBLEM NOT THE SOLUTION! If I'm not peddling ass or have 5 kids by 5 different men you don't want anything to do with me period. Hell you gave frankie and neffe a show might as well give uncle ruckus one two.

I don't watch anything on that channel except Everybody Hates Chris...I am a TV One fan. BET is WACK!!! And although there was not an official ban, I am sure this was thier attempt to do better. But it DID not work, at all. I love the song Sponsor by the way, love it!

Even if it wasn't a "ban" per se, BET was obviously being shady. The video has been out since the beginning of March and we are nearing May. They are quick to post crap as soon as its released but all of a sudden have a problem with "Sponsor". And this is not the first time they have done this to Teairra. Do your research on her first single "Cause a Scene". I'm beginning to think it's not her material they have a problem with...

OH WHO CARES THE SONG IS WACK BET ONLY PLAYS VIDEOS ON 106&PARK AND FIRST THEY HAVE TO VOTE IT ON THE COUNTDOWN AND WHEN THEY VOTE IT ON THE COUNTDOWN THEY WON'T PLAY THE WHOLE THING SO WHY STRESS OVER THE SHIT

Its the principle - we stress

Its the principle - we stress over way less - te song is wack, all the bull we hear on the radio is wack, but this isnt about wackness - its about whats listened to and the influence involved as well as the double standard - important points.

This song and video

This song and video represents the other side of the coin.....these male music artists have women in their video emphasizing their butt meat and breasts.....so why does it have to be a problem when Teara is telling women to make sure they get paid for it? I mean, BET is already phucked up...but they need to be fair and not have this double standard where women can get pimped in videos and men can't.

All these folks that are

All these folks that are First, eventually become last, so why say it. Does it matter. i guess its the nostalgia from having an empty page to comment on. Oh wells, moving on, T.Maire dont have a choice but to take the offer,she needs the video to be on there if u ask me. Am an adult i like the song, i feel like there are way more worse things out there than this song, they should fight Rhi Rhi that is always touching her couchie and she is supposed to be a role model, amongst others. Please BET should quit this hypocritical nonsense.

Everyone knows the illuminati controls BET and they chose Rhianna instead of her to be the big star and basically its like the dreamgirls movies they doing her like Jamie did effie can someone say Payola at BET lol
