Jokes on them…
Nicki Minaj has pulled out of her scheduled BET Experience Concert appearance this summer all because of a since-deleted tweet from the network. However, as we all know, once it’s online it’s forever. Here’s the screenshot of the tweet.

A spokesperson for BET shared the following statement apologizing to Nicki.
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.
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.
What BET posted about Nicki Minaj in regards to cardi b is so foul. Nicki has supported the bet awards for years when no other A list black artists were ever giving it the time of day.
