Bad news for B. Scott.

The Transgender blogger/personality is on the losing end of a discrimination suit he filed against BET.

If you recall, as we reported last August, Scott sued the network, claiming it humiliated him during the BET Awards last year by forcing him to change from women’s clothes into men’s clothes … and then yanking him off the show entirely.

TMZ is reporting that the case was thrown out by a judge today:

The judge ruled BET has the 1st Amendment right to run its shows the way it wants … and that includes ordering Scott to change from women’s to men’s clothes … and that’s that.

Scott tells TMZ, “It disheartens me that the message sent today wasn’t a message of acceptance, but rather it’s acceptable to discriminate against transgender individuals on the basis of their gender identity and expression.”

Scott’s attorney has said he plans to appeal the decision.

  1. If you don’t like the way an employer runs it’s business, find another job. Just as you don’t want to be told how to conduct your business, neither do they. If you don’t like the fact that BET doesn’t want a man dressed up women’s clothes, then don’t work for them. People really need to stop trying to force other people to do things the way they want them done.
