Nicki Minaj Cancels BET Concert After Cardi B Grammys Tweet

Nicki Minaj says she’s dropping out of her upcoming BET Experience Concert appearance after being shaded in a tweet from the network.

The now-deleted tweet involved Cardi B, whom the 36-year-old “Good Form” rapper has feuded with in the past.

The tweet was posted alongside an article on Cardi’s Grammy win for Best Rap Album, stating, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”

On Monday (February 11), Nicki retweeted a fan who screenshot the tweet, writing, “Young Money will no longer be a part of the BET Experience or award show.”

Lil Wayne was also scheduled to perform.

A spokesperson for BET then issued the following statement: “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. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values.”

The statement continued, “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. We are also conducting an internal audit to assure these types of posts are not published again. We have apologized to Nicki and her team. The post has been removed and we have taken additional appropriate action. We understand Nicki’s position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her. Finally, we apologize to all of her fans. This should have never happened.”
