Nicki Minaj Reportedly Backs Out of BET Experience After BET Tweet About Her

Only time will tell if Weezy will boycott this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards, but for now, don't expect to see Nicki.

For the simple reason that Nicki Minaj has been a longtime supporter of BET, did BET do too much with that tweet?

Not long after, Minaj issued a statement, saying she and "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show".

The publication's tweet read, "Meanwhile Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront". Of course the distasteful tweet didn't sit well with Nicki, and she quickly chose to cancel her show with them.

Earlier in the day, Nicki announced herself, Lil Wayne and the Young Money team would be ghost at BET's summer events.

Afterward, Minaj thanked fans for their support, adding, "Stay tuned". As of Monday afternoon, her name still appears on BET Experience's official site, as does that of another co-headliner, one who-perhaps tellingly-is slated to perform on a different night: Cardi B.

- QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) February 11, 2019Whoaaaaaa - @LilTunechi done-done w/ the @BET Hip Hop Awards???

'We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. Unfortunately, the respect that we have for Nicki was violated by a post that should never have been written.

After fans slammed the account for tweeting such a thing, it was deleted shortly after, but not without getting Nicki's attention first. And further does not reflect our company values. We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.
