BET issued a statement apologizing to Nicki Minaj for a tweet that shaded her while
simultaneously celebrating Cardi B's Grammy win for best rap album.
“Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront,” the since-deleted tweet from the network read, redirecting to an article on BET.com about Cardi's award.
However, the damage was already done, as fans took screenshots of the tweet and called out the network for its comment, calling the tweet "insensitive" and "disrespectful."
Minaj announced Monday via Twitter that she and the rest of Young Money would pull out of this year’s BET Awards and BET Experience, where she was set to perform as a headliner.
This is disrespectful after all days 10 years of hard work did disrespected the queen and discredit her now we have the first Latina to win a Grammy insert for a black queen for 10 years 🙄 head up Nicki you already won my Queen.
