Nicki Minaj Shades The BET Awards For Their Reported Low Ratings After The Network Previously Mocked Her
Nicki Minaj is not over her beef with the BET Awards yet! That being said, when she found out the event had its lowest ratings ever, she decided to put salt in the wound and remind the people behind it why Karma is here to get them.
Supposedly, only two million people tuned in this year and Nicki retweeted a post by Music News Facts reading: ‘With only 2 million views, the 2019 BET Awards was the show’s LOWEST ratings ever.’
The female emcee added her reaction, writing: ‘When u go out of ur way to b spiteful and hurt artists who have always supported ur show... when you fire great ppl who have put their hearts and souls into the show... when you would rather be a very messy reality show than a prestigious awards show... when you are still being dragged by that lace.’
Her post proves Nicki still has hard feelings after someone part of BET’s social team mocked her back in February.
While the post has since been deleted, Nicki never forgets when someone wrongs her!
It came after her rival, Cardi B’s Best Rap Album win at the GRAMMYs and it read: ‘Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.’ Yikes!
It was so shady for no reason! Taking sides in the two female rappers’ feud? - Nicki definitely did not appreciate the awards’ show’s biased post.
After Nicki as well as Young Money pulled out of the event this year, the network apologized and promised to look into who was responsible for the upsetting post, admitting that ‘This should have never happened.’
Obviously, it was not enough for Nicki to forgive and forget!
As for the low ratings claim, BET responded, slamming Music News Facts and tweeting that ‘THE 2019 #BETAWARDS SOARS AS THE NUMBER 1 CABLE AWARD SHOW FOR THE FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR AMONG P18-49 WITH MORE THAN 12.7 MILLION VIEWERS TUNNING IN ACROSS 8 @VIACOM NETWORKS ON SUNDAY, JUNE 23.’
