Someone over at BET had to learn the hard way - you do not come for Nicki Minaj unless she sends for you.
The reasoning-a tweet from the channel's verified account that includes a link to an article about Cardi B's Grammy win with the text "Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront".
Nicki Minaj made sure that BET paid for the shade. In a follow-up tweet, she announced that neither she nor any of the acts on the famed Young Money label would be appearing at June's BET Experience. Clearly, Nicki had already consulted with Lil Wayne who is among the headlining act. The cable network was forced to apologize to the Queen album creator.
The Queen rapper shared a screenshot of a direct message between herself and Weezy where she told him about what went down on Twitter.
The statement that followed said: 'Unfortunately, the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written. "And further does not reflect our company values". In it, the network said it "deeply apologizes for the hurt, disappointment and confusion" caused by the social media post.
The network added: "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her".
It comes after Nicki dragged the same Grammys producer that allegedly lied about Ariana Grande's decision to pull out of her 61st annual awards show performance on Sunday. "We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward. This should have never happened".
