BET apologises to Nicki Minaj for shading her while congratulating Cardi B on her Grammy win

BET apologises to Nicki Minaj for shading her while congratulating Cardi B on her Grammy win

In a now-deleted tweet, BET retweeted an article saying Cardi B is the first solo female rapper to win best rap album. The caption for the photo read: “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”

 

In anger, Nicki pulled her BET Experience performance. She announced that she and her label, Young Money, would not be part of the BET Experience later this summer – which is a concert series she and Cardi were booked to co-headline just days before the BET Awards in June.

Nicki called out BET for their tweet. 

BET has now released a statement revealing the offensive post was unauthorized.

The network says:

BET loves Nicki Minaj. We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward. Nicki has paved the way for so many performers and has solidified her place as one of the most powerful figures in the music industry.

Unfortunately the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written. PAY ATTENTION ➔  does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values. We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.
