Nicki Minaj was not in a happy mood this evening.

On Monday (Feb. 11), BET published a tweet that linked an article congratulating Cardi B on Sunday night’s Best Rap Album win at the 2019 Grammy Awards. However, when linking the article, the tweet also read, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”

This prompted Nicki Minaj to pull out of the forthcoming BET Awards and BET Experience via Twitter and told fans to get their refund.

“Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show,” she tweeted. “Summer Tour dates dropping soon.”

Absolutely. Get your refund ASAP

BET has issued a statement in response to this incident:

“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.”
