BET Denies Bringing Back 'Uncut'
While on the red carpet for BET’s first annual Player’s Awards last week, Pooch Hall of The Game confirmed with Black Sports Online that BET was bringing back Uncut, the late night show that aired videos too risque to be shown during the day. BET has now issued a statement saying they have no plans of reviving the show.
“During a taping of the first annual [NBA] Players Awards on Sunday in Las Vegas, The Game’s Pooch Hall spoke to Black Sports Online and confirmed the return of BET’s late night show. Contrary to Hall’s quote on the Red Carpet and numerous reports from Hip-Hop outlets, this is untrue. BET.com’s email to Black Sports Online was not returned.”
Uncut was cancelled in 2006 after a six-year run due to much backlash about its provocativeness.
