BET apologises to Nicki Minaj for unauthorised tweet

BET apologises to Nicki Minaj for unauthorised tweet

The 26-year old rapper chose to call it quits with the social media platform after receiving several backlash from fans who must have felt she wasn't deserving of it.

Minaj said Monday on social media that she won't perform at the concert or BET Awards.

In fact, folks over at BET are ducking for cover as Nicki and the entire Young Money crew of Cash Money Records chose to boycott the BET Experience, an elaborate music extravaganza that takes place every June during BET Awards weekend in downtown Los Angeles. She said, "I been taking a lot of sh*t today".

The drama started when BET posted a tweet about Cardi B becoming the first female rapper to win the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. Finally, we apologize to all of her fans.

On Monday, the network released a statement apologizing for an offensive tweet getting out to the masses. "And further does not reflect our company values", read the statement.

He went to a knee and when he got up, his face ejaculating blood, he gave no indication to the ref he wanted to continue. His power is always a factor, and he began showing it early with punishing shots to the body.

And the very next day Cardi B was not only showing off her battle scars but also engaged in a war of words.

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. She's referencing BET (Black Entertainment Awards) tweeting what appeared to be a diss at Nicki Minaj. "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her".

Nicki retweeted it with the caption, 'I pi**ed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear. 'Also, congrats to everyone who won last night'.

She concluded the expletive-filled rant: 'While everybody was harassing me like, you not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career's over-that s-t's dwelling in my f-king mind while I'm workin!' In her caption alongside Chance the Rapper's comment, the NY native further explained her process making Invasion of Privacy, writing that she "Slept in the studio on leather sofas for 3 months straight, migraines, in Atlanta in Miami away from my family".
