BET apologises to Nicki Minaj after “lace front” shade
“Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lace front,” the station had reportedly tweeted alongside a post about Cardi’s win.
However, BET has taken down the tweet and issued an apology on all their platforms.
“The respect we have for Nicki was violated by a post that should never have been written,” a statement by BET spokesperson reads.
“The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values.
“We deeply apologise for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. 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.
“We have apologised 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 apologise to all of her fans. This should have never happened.”
