    Yesterday, Nicki Minaj clapped back at BET when the network sent a mocking tweet accompanying their coverage of Cardi B’s historic Best Rap Album win at the 2019 Grammys.

    In a now-deleted tweet about Cardi’s recent accomplishment, the cable network wrote, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.” But Onika is no pushover. In response, she announced that the entirety of Young Money were pulling out of the 2019 BET Experience, which she was supposed to co-headline with Bardi in June. She also told a fan to “get your refund ASAP.”

    BET promptly apologized to Minaj and her fans, who had flooded the network’s social media with criticism. “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,” they said in a statement.

    But Minaj was just warming up with BET. In a later tweet, the rapper spoke out about Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, whom Ariana Grande had clashed with over a supposed performance slot at the music awards ceremony.

    In the midst of all this, Minaj took the time to thank her fans for their love and support. “To everyone who said something sweet, thank you. Whether I read it or not, I felt it. From the bottom of my heart. I love you so much. So so so soooo much. Stay tuned,” she tweeted.

    She also congratulated those who won accolades at Sunday night’s awards ceremony. It seems like these spats with BET and the Grammys haven’t affected her seemingly improving relationship with Cardi.
