Fashion blogger sues BET over attire clash

LOS ANGELES (AP) ? A transgendered style correspondent who says BET made him tone down his feminine look on the network's pre-awards show last month has filed a lawsuit against the network's parent company for discrimination, wrongful termination and emotional distress.

B. Scott is seeking $2.5 million in damages from BET parent company Viacom after he said he was told to change his outfit at last month's BET Awards to a more conservative suit, tie his long hair back in a ponytail and not wear heels. The fashion personality said that even after he changed, he was replaced by another correspondent.

BET called the incident a "misunderstanding" and said it regretted any "unintentional offense" in a statement last month.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in in Los Angeles Superior Court.
