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, who was born Brandon Sessoms, 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 blogger said that even after he changed, he was replaced by another correspondent.
