Nicki Minaj Throws Down the Gauntlet Against BET, Won’t Perform at Awards

12 February 2019

After last night's Grammy Awards, the network attempted to drag Nicki Minaj with a tweet highlighting Cardi B Grammy-winning night for Best Rap Album. "Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront", read BET's tweet.

Minaj subsequently tweeted that Young Money will no longer be a part of the BET Experience or award show. Summer Tour dates dropping soon, ' Nicki wrote.

Minaj wasn't even up for a Grammy, but BET dredged up past tensions between the two rappers anyway with its tweet.

In a statement, BET apologized to Minaj for the "hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused".

In another post, Nicki thanked her fans for their support, writing. "And further does not reflect our company values".

The network added: "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her". We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.

Before the apology, Nicki shared a lot of messages from fans slamming BET for its joke, and even encouraged one follower to ask for a refund for the festival in June. We have apologized to Nicki and her team.

It's unclear if Lil Wayne's "I'm with u" is him saying he's canceling his performance as well or just okay with her decision to do so, but we'll probably get a proper statement from Young Money about it in the coming days or weeks.

'I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear.

Someone over at BET had to learn the hard way - you do not come for Nicki Minaj unless she sends for you. I love you so much.
