Nicki Minaj Pulls out of BET Concert After Controversial Grammys Tweet

Share

Minaj says she's canceling her appearance at the BET Experience Concert after the network tweeted about her and fellow rapper Cardi B. As of Monday afternoon, her name still appears on BET Experience's official site, as does that of another co-headliner, one who-perhaps tellingly-is slated to perform on a different night: Cardi B.

According to Complex, Nicki is now encouraging her fans to get a refund for their tickets to her BET show.

The statement that followed said: 'Unfortunately, the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written.

Someone over at BET had to learn the hard way - you do not come for Nicki Minaj unless she sends for you. Not only did she canceled her upcoming performance at the BET Experience this summer, but she also said that the entire Young Money roster would not be in attendance at the BET Award show.

The network added: "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her. And further does not reflect our company values", the network said.

'We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. Finally, we apologize to all of her fans.

Asked why she'd never won a Grammy in her 16-year career on Twitter, Nicki responded by saying: 'I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. I love you so much.
