Nicki Minaj cancels BET concert over offensive tweet

Nicki Minaj cancels BET concert over offensive tweet

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. Minaj says she's canceling her appearance at the BET Experience Concert after the network tweeted about her and fellow rapper Cardi B.

Minaj subsequently tweeted that Young Money will no longer be a part of the BET Experience or award show. Summer Tour dates dropping soon'.

The veteran guard is about to sign with the playoff-contending Raptors , after he worked out a buyout agreement with Atlanta. On top of that, the Raptors get a marketable player as Linsanity is a big draw like he was with the New York Knicks.

The network added it took unspecified "additional appropriate action" once the tweet was brought to the attention of executives and said, "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her".

BET has officially released a statement apologizing to Minaj, according to Pitchfork.

Unai Emery talks Arsenal's top four chances after Huddersfield win
We were working well. "Everybody worked very hard and we were unlucky to concede the goal but overall it was a deserved win". Our motivation is very great and every player wants to struggle every match and be consistent over 38 matches.

"The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values", the network said. We have apologized to Nicki and her team'. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.

Nicki was due to put on a headline performance at Los Angeles' Staples Center during BET weekend in June but she was encouraging her followers to get refunds on Monday. Since Nicki seems to be the only one repping Young Money these days, her threat may not hold much weight on the way this year's awards weekend will play out. Later on, she tweeted that she pissed off the same man that Ariana just called out for lying and that's why she does not have a Grammy.

The fire is believed to have been caused by a short circuit but the evacuation was hampered by narrow corridors, panelled in wood. Two hotel staff members had jumped from the fourth floor of the hotel in an attempt to save themselves.

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