Lawdt!  If you were expecting a reaction from Nicki Minaj after Cardi B. won the one award Nicki hasn't, a reaction is what you just got.  She just dropped out of the BET Experience after they shaded her over the Grammys.  Now, the network is apologizing. Deets inside.

Nicki Minaj obviously skipped out on the Grammy awards after not being nominated this year, but she still hosted a Grammy party for Church on Sundays at Argyle in L.A. last night.  She was spotted leaving out with her boyfriend Kenneth Petty (above).  We guess she saw the fall out with BET's Twitter while out partying.

Fast forward to this morning, chick announced she and Young Money are OUT of the BET Experience this summer.  Oop.

Here's what happened: Once Cardi B. made history as the first solo woman to win Best Rap Album at the Grammys, BET applauded Cardi on her first Grammy win, while simultaneously dragging her nemesis Nicki.

The person who wrote the tweet is still getting dragged with her picture and Twitter account being exposed. Nicki saw all the dragging, and dragged BET right back. So, YMCMB is no longer part of the BET Experience the network has been promoting for weeks:

 

 

She's pushing for folks to get a refund:

Nicki's also planning to expose, the executive producer of the Grammys, and the reason she hasn't won one yet on the next Queen Radio:

BET must be feeling the pressure, because they claim the tweet was "unauthorized."  It's unclear how it was unauthorized when the tweet was put on their platform, by their employee, with a link to their article that is still live.  But here's what they're saying:

The network says, “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."

The statement continues ... "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.”

 

Y'all waiting on this Grammy tea?
