  • BET Shaded Nicki Minaj And She Literally Cancelled Them

"BET loves Nicki Minaj", the statement reads.

The 36-year-old musician announced she was pulling out of a high-profile summer concert after the event's sponsor, cable network BET, appeared to mock her during Sunday night's Grammy Awards telecast.

Complex reports that they wrote: 'Meanwhile, Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront'.

A commenter said that 'Meanwhile Nicki Minaj and her fans can disrespect and be childish to anyone yet BET can't be petty ‍♀️ Nicki hasn't won a Grammy for one reason talent just because you were the only one doing something doesn't mean you are talented'.

Nicki denounced BET and their "disrespectful" tweet in a post that said: 'Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show. Clearly, Nicki had already consulted with Lil Wayne who is among the headlining act.

US team in Beijing for trade talks
China's claim was largely discredited by an worldwide arbitration tribunal three years ago, but Beijing has rejected the ruling. The Chinese military has since bolstered its presence in the region, deploying military hardware and other defense systems.


On Monday, the network released a statement apologizing for an offensive tweet getting out to the masses. Unfortunately the respect we have for Nicki was violated by a post that should never have been written.

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".

In another post, Nicki thanked her fans for their support, writing.

"We deeply apologise for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused".

As of early Tuesday, the BET Experience festival website still showed Minaj and Lil Wayne would perform on June 21 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. "This should have never happened".
