Fresh off the release of the “Hard White” video, Nicki Minaj has announced that she is removing herself from the BET Experience Concert schedule. This news comes as a response to a now-deleted tweet from the outlet, which captioned an article involving Cardi B‘s Grammy accolade for Best Rap Album with, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.” Addressing the aforementioned post, Nicki Minaj retweeted a fan-sent screenshot of the tweet and also wrote, “Young Money will no longer be a part of the BET Experience or award show.” In response, BET has sent out the following apology 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 apologized 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 apologize to all of her fans. This should have never happened.

We’ll keep you updated as more information surfaces. The BET Experience Concerts are scheduled to take place from June 20-22, and will precede the Bet Awards event on June 23.

Earlier this month, Nicki Minaj remixed Blueface’s “Thotiana” for “Bust Down Barbiana.”
