Nicki Minaj announced she and Lil Wayne will no longer be featured artists at the BET Experience and will not attend the network's award show after the station unfavorably compared the rapper to Cardi B in a tweet Monday.

After the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10), the BET Twitter account celebrated Cardi B 's big Grammy win by sharing an article with the headline: "Cardi B Is The First Solo Female Rapper To Win Best Rap Album, And Fans Are Weeping".

Nicki Minaj is clearly furious with BET and will be pushing her camp to boycott the network's annual award show. Unfortunately, the respect that we have for Nicki was violated by a post that should never have been written.

In another post, Nicki thanked her fans for their support, writing. And further does not reflect our company values. In it, the network said it "deeply apologizes for the hurt, disappointment and confusion" caused by the social media post. "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.

Nicki Minaj has canceled her upcoming performance at this year's BET Experience. We have apologized to Nicki and her team'. "Summer Tour dates dropping soon", Nicki tweeted before telling a fan that she can get a refund for her tickets to the show.

Nicki Minaj is the latest celeb to slam a Grammy producer after Ariana Grande did the same! "I don't know what white man from the boards she pissed off". 'Also, congrats to everyone who won last night'.

She disagreed, claiming that the Grammys producer "stifled" her creativity and self-expression. Here are some more tweets from her feed where she is trashing BET. I love you so much.
