TV network, BET has apologised to Nicki Minaj following the network’s inappropriate tweet at her following Cardi B Grammys win.
The station had reportedly tweeted alongside a post about Cardi’s win saying, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lace front”
Although the tweet has been deleted, BET issued an apology on all their platforms in a statement.
“BET loves Nicki Minaj. We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward. Nicki has paved the way for so many performers and has solidified her place as one of the most powerful figures in the music industry.
“Unfortunately the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values.
“We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.
“We are also conducting an internal audit to assure these types of posts are not published again.
“We have apologised to Nicki and her team. The post has been removed and we have taken additional appropriate action.
“We understand Nicki’s position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.
“Finally, we apologise to all of her fans. This should have never happened.“
However, due to BET’s attempt to ‘shade’ her after the Grammys, Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter on Monday to announce she had cancelled her BET Show scheduled for April.
Since her cancellation announcement, fans have come out to defend the rapper. She thanks her fans for their support in a tweet, “I can’t thank you guys enough for all the love & support you continue to show me. To everyone who said something sweet, thank you.”
I can’t thank you guys enough for all the love & support you continue to show me. To everyone who said something sweet, thank you. Whether I read it or not, I felt it. From the bottom of my heart. I love you so much. So so so soooo much. Stay tuned. ♥️🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄♥️— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) February 11, 2019
