Despite news circulating from Black Sports Online and others that BET’s late-night program BET Uncut will be returning this year, BET has released a statement today (July 20) refuting those claims.

“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,” a statement from BET says. “Contrary to Hall’s quote on the Red Carpet and numerous reports from Hip Hop outlets, this is untrue.‘s email to Black Sports Online was not returned.”

BET Uncut was known for airing such sexually explicit videos after 3 AM as Nelly‘s “Tip Drill” and 50 Cent’s “Disco Inferno.”

The show drew protests from many Historically Black Colleges & Universities, including Spelman College, which led to to the program’s cancelation in 2006.

Jermaine Dupri hosted the final episode of BET Uncut in 2006.
