Nicki Minaj pulls out of BET concert over offensive tweet

Adjust Comment Print

Black Entertainment Television found itself on the wrong side of Nicki Minaj and her legion of Barbz.

In a since-deleted tweet, BET noted that Cardi B-who's feuded with Minaj in the past-had become the first woman to win Best Solo Rap Album. The tweet has since disappeared from BET's timeline but, it's too little too late for Queen Barbie and her Barbie Army.

Nicki Minaj says she has cancelled a planned upcoming appearance at the BET Concert Experience in June, where she was set to co-headline with Cardi B days before the annual BET Awards, as TMZ reports. "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show", she revealed today. Nothing left to do here but sit back and watch. However, instead of keeping the caption about Cardi the network made a decision to take the moment to shade Nicki, whose previously had beef with the "Money" rapper.

Someone over at BET had to learn the hard way - you do not come for Nicki Minaj unless she sends for you.
