BET Apologizes To Nicki Minaj After Grammy Diss: ‘This Should Have Never Happened’

Published: Monday 11th Feb 2019 by Rashad

BET’s extending an olive branch to Nicki Minaj after taking to social media last night (February 10) to ridicule the rapstress for having lost out on her Grammy nominations.

As we reported here, whoever was coordinating posts on behalf of the network’s social media accounts suggested the Young Money maven was upset at news her former nemesis, Cardi B, had become the first woman in history to nab the ‘Best Rap Album’ Grammy (click here to read more).  Once the news hit the desk of Minaj, she clapped back by asserting her label home would not longer be offering its artists to the BET Experience or its annual award show.

A spokesperson for the network quickly responded with an apology:

Fans are undoubtedly hoping the “additional appropriate action” is the termination of the person responsible for the posts, as they took to social media in droves and called for his or her removal.

        With no number 1, no Grammy and only 8.5 million albums sold! 🤣🤣🤣

        I’d rather have Cardi’s number 1s and Grammy over Nicki’s kiddie accolade of having kids stream her music! 🤣🤣🤣

      • ??? February 11, 2019

      • Caleb February 12, 2019

        Nicki didn’t sell 8 million albums. That’s with streaming included. Without streaming she sold 3.7 million albums.

  6. SNF February 11, 2019

    I dont care for Nicki but this was not it…

  7. Keon February 11, 2019

    Nicki minaj is going to end herself. She talks and reply to everything yet she always has something to say about someone else.
    Was it right? No bet it wasn’t but nicki could’ve moved in silence another way.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. February 11, 2019

      @Keon – STFU! You don’t say CRAP when Cardi talks about every NEGATIVE response she gets. These people HATE NICKI! That’s the ONLY REASON Cardi got a Grammy. This crap is BEYOND ridiculous. You get a Grammy for RAPPING when YOU DON’T EVEN WRITE YOUR OWN CRAP and use PAYOLA.
      #BULL

    • Whoops 🤭💅🏾🤷🏽‍♀️ February 11, 2019

      There are times where she talks too much, but This is one instance where it made more sense to speak up. And she had every right. This wasn’t some random person on the internet. It was a network that she has always supported and helped make money. For them to openly disrespect her like that was a mess. Why should she stay quiet? And why should BET get off Scott free while she’s being laughed at? The offense was public, so the repercussions should be public too.

    • SMH February 11, 2019

      Exactly just STFU. There is no excuse for this petty unprofessionalism. Nicki was absolutely correct to speak up and call them on their b*******.

  8. Dc February 11, 2019

    Cardi should hire her ultimate petty move lol

    • Queen Missy 👸🏾 February 12, 2019

      Yas. Is that dude Rah Ali running around with Onik?

  9. Dc February 11, 2019

    Watch BET make a deal that if she performs at the awards they will give her best female hip hop award mark my word that’s how she plays

    • SMH February 11, 2019

      Except she didn’t “play” anything here, it was all BETs petty f*ck up. Try again.

  10. 💁🏿‍♀️The ONLY Jasmine (Da Bi Asian) February 11, 2019

    Well my insiders have informed me that due to this tragedy Cardi has hired Nicki to open up for her show. So Nicki will be good. Cardis a generous Queen💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️

    • ??? February 11, 2019

      lmaoooo bye gurl, nicki is about to launch a world tour while dummi is already in has been city and she’s only been out a year lmfaooooo 😂😂😂😂

      • Cardiac Arrest February 12, 2019

        Girl you suck the s*** outta Nicki’s ass commenting on everyone’s post! Give it up Cardi wins Nicki lose ooohhhh s***! Like i don’t even know why girls bother!!!! It’s like she single handedly annihilated all the rap b******!!!! Haha

      • LUCKI February 12, 2019

        Yet Nicki’s tour was CANCELED due to low sales last year. You tried it.

  11. Jujumanji February 11, 2019

    She can speak on behalf of young money now cause she in her feelings? So what happens when Drake who she has shaded continually shows up and shows out? Cardi did what u couldn’t in 10 yrs of trying. So what? Her blessings are not written for you. Be a grown ass woman, do your job get your check and live YOUR best life. Stop clocking and cockblocking a girl that could be your lil sister. Let yours be 4 you. What is wrong with people?

  12. Chile BYE… February 12, 2019

    She really gets under my skin. She got so much mouth and soooooo much bravado until she’s met with facts and receipts, then she wants to get her gang to help her. Cowardly lioness.

    When Remy served her build-a-bear silicone ass that real tea, her clap back involved a song/video with Drake (who don’t mess wit her no more), Wayne, and others.

    BET post said “SHE getting dragged by HER lace front” How that translates into her getting Wayne and YMCMB to abandon their commitments is beyond me. I can’t stand her. And for those that wanna talk that “gang gang” s***, she don’t have no loyalty. She turned the side dude into the main dude and left him in the lurch when he was battling that crazy ass judge. Opportunist, yes. Ride or die, HELL NO!

    That lacefront dingy, dusty and DONE. Ain’t no good gonna come to her until she get her own self together. Be the “Queen” you proclaim to be. Being a child molestors complicit girlfriend is the farthest thing from royal or Queen-like.

    That tweet was beyond messy, immature and pointless and whoever is responsible for letting it get posted should be reprimanded or fired, and an apology should have been issued, as it was.

    HOWEVER, Nicki pulling out of an engagement over a TWEET is so unbelievably immature and unprofessional. Completely ridiculous. The big heads at that network and the people who hired her to do the show more than likely have NOTHING to do with the BET Twitter account. Y’all really out here thinking the people who run a television network are actually checking the tweets?! They are too busy to be worried with that, which is why they have other people to do it.

    Social media for brands is usually managed by an independent social media team at the company or it’s outsourced to a third party social media management company. They put their trust in someone to hire and manage a team to run the social media account, and that person clearly dropped the ball here and they have to deal with that. Her team could have reached out and let the big heads know that the tweet was out of line and needs to be removed, etc. But to try to act like the entire network itself sent out the messy tweet is just plain DUMB.

    I saw that a lot of her fans had already purchased tickets and made travel arrangements to go see her there, and now they are probably not going to be able to get their money back at all just because of her ego.

    I’m sorry but Onika needs to suck it up and learn how to move like an adult. Stop letting your 12-year-old fans influence the way you make your moves because they got you out here looking real goofy sis.
