Nicki Minaj Cancels BET Concert After Cardi B Grammys Tweet

12 February 2019

Earlier today, Nicki Minaj revealed that she was no longer performing at the BET Experience concert in June after the BET network made a decision to blast her during the Grammy's last night.

The article titled, "Cardi B Is The First Solo Female Rapper To Win Best Rap Album, And Fans Are Weeping". "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show", she revealed today.

BET is conducting an internal investigation into their social media practice after Nicki Minaj condemned an offensive tweet they sent her. 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.

BET has officially released a statement apologizing to Minaj, according to Pitchfork.

The organisation issued an apology on Monday night when Nicki dropped out of headlining the 2019 awards show and all further projects with the Black Entertainment Television network. We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.

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.

Adding, "Unfortunately the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written".

Someone commented "Don't feel obligated to apologize for y'all said what y'all said she backed out on her lil performance it's okay we can find someone else to perform".

BET said the now-deleted tweet was unauthorized and "should never have happened". We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation. We have apologized to Nicki and her team'.
