Minaj's last album, 2018's Queen, was recently certified platinum by the Recording Institute of America, signifying sales and streams of more than one million, her fourth consecutive album to reach that benchmark. The seventh annual concert series will be held June 20-22 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ahead of the BET Awards on June 23.
The article titled, "Cardi B Is The First Solo Female Rapper To Win Best Rap Album, And Fans Are Weeping". However, the individual running the verified Twitter account used that opportunity to throw shade at Cardi's rival. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki.
The tweet has been deleted and, in a statement, BET apologized to Minaj for the "hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused". We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.
According to the company an internal audit is underway to ensure that similar posts are not published. Minaj replied to that message by tweeting, "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show".
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".
She also noted she wasn't a fan of those who "put other people down to uplift somebody else".
Someone over at BET had to learn the hard way - you do not come for Nicki Minaj unless she sends for you. "This should have never happened".
