Since being mocked by BET, Nicki Minaj has severed ties with the network. Back in February, an employee on BET’s social team had tweeted the following from the network’s Twitter account: “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront,” in reference to Cardi B’s win at the Grammy Awards for Best Rap Album.
Minaj ridiculed BET in response to a tweet from the account @musicnewsfacts claiming Sunday’s BET Award Show earned the lowest ratings in the show’s history, with a reported 2 million views. "When u go out of ur way to b spiteful & hurt artists who have always supported ur show... when you fire great ppl who have put their heart & soul into the show... when you'd rather be a messy reality show than a prestigious award show... when ur still being dragged by that lace," Minaj wrote in response to the ratings report.
However, BET says this year's awards show accumulated 12.7 million total viewers across eight Viacom networks.
