It looks like BET really messed up this time, as their entire team faces the backlash from 36 year-old rapper, Nicki Minaj.
BET’s social media team posted a rather upsetting tweet last night, while congratulating rapper, Cardi B, on her history making Grammy win. The tweet read, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”
As expected, fans of the artist erupted on Twitter, demanding an apology from the network as well as stating that she did not deserve to be “trashed like that”.
However, it seems that Nicki believes in fighting fire with fire, as she sent out a counter tweet saying, “Meanwhile, BET is being dragged by their lacefront.” 😂She then made the announcement that her record label, Young Money, would no longer be apart of the annual BET Experience this summer, (before the BET Awards), but instead will be doing a summer tour.
Sources close to Minaj said that this was, allegedly, her way of clapping back at the network for their mean tweet about her.
If you recall, Nicki and Cardi have been in a long running beef since their brawl last year at NYFW, but were rumored to be working on it.
Still, it looks like BET may have been the one to suffer from their actions, since Nicki was one of their main headliners for the BET Experience.
Stay tuned as the story develops.
