LOS ANGELES – Nicki Minaj says she cancels her appearance on the BET Experience Concert after the network has tweeted about her and other rapper Cardi B.
Minaj said on social media Monday that she will not perform at the concert or at the BET Awards. It comes after BET tweeted Sunday that Minaj was "pulled off her head" by Cardi B.'s Grammy winner for the best rap album.
In a statement, BET apologized to Minaj for "the evil, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused." The network says it will conduct an internal investigation. Tweet has been deleted.
A rep for Minaj did not respond immediately to an email seeking comment.
The seventh annual concert will be held on 20-22. June at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ahead of the BET Awards on June 23.
