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'.

New images from NASA confirm Ultima Thule's flat shape
Despite its lack of resemblance to Frosty or any other snowman for that matter, Ultima Thule continues to amaze scientists. It was first believed to be spherical, but the new images shows it's more likely pancake-like in shape.

"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.
