Why BET’s Mean Tweet About Nicki Minaj Was Counterproductive To The Culture

Offset and Cardi B at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center

"She is fearless", Gaga tweeted.

Cardi B, who has been met with her fair share of criticism and trolling in the past did not like the way people reacted to her win.

On February 10, Cardi B. made history as the first solo female to take home the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. Before deleting the account, Cardi shared a video of herself clapping back at those criticising her.

Last night, BET chimed in on Nicki Minaj and Cardi B's deep-seated beef and now, Minaj wants smoke with the network.

In a statement, BET apologized to Minaj for the "hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused".

"We are also conducting an internal audit to assure these types of posts are not published again", the statement reads as posted by TMZ.


But it was too late. Moreover, BET social media sites got trampled by a stampeding herd of outraged Nicki fans, for which the "Moment 4 Life" femcee showed gratitude.

'I don't know what white man from the boards she pi**ed off'.

"I'm with u!" he replied. "Summer Tour dates dropping soon", she tweeted.

Cardi wasn't exempt from online haterade.

After the network tweeted a shady comment about the "Chun-Li" rapper, Nicki announced that she, nor her Young Money team, will be a part of their upcoming BET Experience or BET Award show, despite being the headliners for both events. I worked hard for my motherf***** em *Bodak Yellow everybody was like, 'Cardi got snubbed, Cardi got snubbed'. I f-ing worked my ass off, locked myself in the studio for three months, my n--, then went to sleep in my own bed, sometimes for four days straight, pregnant.

Posting videos that saw her wax poetic on everything from cheating lovers to the qualities of the pancake chain restaurant IHOP, Cardi snagged a spot on the reality series "Love & Hip Hop", further amplifying her image.
