Television and internet media personality B. Scott has spoken publicly about his lawsuit against BET for the first time. The lawsuit stems from the host, who was born male and identifies himself as ‘gender nonconforming’ being “yanked off the telecast” at the 2013 BET Awards and told his outfit was “unacceptable from head to toe”.

In a written released statement Scott said…

“It is also by that definition that BET and Viacom willingly and wrongfully discriminated against my gender identity during the 2013 BET Awards Pre-Show…Let’s be clear — I’m suing BET and Viacom for a true public apology and to be fairly remunerated for the time lost, humiliation and emotional distress this entire situation has put me through.”

What do you think? Does B. Scott have a case?
