BET is under fire after losing Nicki Minaj as their headliner for the 2019 BET Experience due to a distasteful tweet.
Shortly after Cardi B made history for being the first female solo artist to win best rap album, BET reacted to this news by tweeting, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront”.
Nicki Minaj responded to the tweet earlier today by announcing that she will not be headlining the BET Experience this summer. Her tweet also announces that Young Money Entertainment will also not be a part of the BET Experience or award show.
The Young Money artist that was scheduled to perform was Lil Wayne.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj’s fanbase is responding to BET’s tweet by threatening to not watch the show or even attend. Many fans are requesting to get a refund.
BET has yet to respond.
