Nicki who was angered by this, pulled down her BET Experience performance.

According to the ‘Chun-Li’ hit maker, she and her label, Young Money, would not be part of the BET Experience later this summer. –

She was initially booked to co- headline the event with Cardi B just days before the BET Awards in June.

Nicki called out BET for their tweet.

BET has now released a statement that says the offensive post was unauthorized.

The wrote:

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.

They added:

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.

BET also says:

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.
