After the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10), the BET Twitter account celebrated Cardi B 's big Grammy win by sharing an article with the headline: "Cardi B Is The First Solo Female Rapper To Win Best Rap Album, And Fans Are Weeping". "Meanwhile", the tweet reportedly added, "Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront". "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show", she tweeted, seemingly indicating that Lil Wayne would no longer perform now, as well. Summer Tour dates dropping soon'. 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.

The statement continued, "We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused". Unfortunately the respect we have for Nicki was violated by a post that should never have been written. "And further does not reflect our company values".

BET has issued an apology. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.

Minaj, who's been nominated for 10 Grammys-yet never won-responded by posting a screenshot of BET's tweet on her Twitter feed, which has more than 20 million followers.

"Finally, we apologise to all her fans". I can pull together a performance overnight and you know that, Ken'. 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.
