New York - 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.

"It’s not just about the fact that BET forced me to pull my hair back, asked me to take off my makeup, made me changed my clothes and prevented me from wearing a heel. It’s more so that from the mentality and environment created by BET made me feel less than and that something was wrong with who I am as a person."

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