Sometimes you must be willing to make a sacrifice to exercise your power. Nicki was willing to give up her business relationship with BET for being disrespected. Say what you want about Nicki, but she handled this right. Hope y'all payin' attention.

As they should. The reality is Nicki is strong female rapper despise her mostly infantile lyrics, but for someone who has been in the game this long and not winning a grammy, and while a grammy is no indication of actual talent. Because we have seen many folks get grammy who have no lick of talent, but I digress sad her awful behavior behind the scenes has really hampered her getting the kind of accolades she deserves, being nasty to your industry peers, and sabotaging others careers behind the scene, her nasty ass attitude, arrogance and host of other personality disorders. But in this case EBT was dead ass wrong to disrespect this seasoned entertainer, in favor of a newbie who just came on the scene and ain't put no real work in yet. Do better EBT.

This was some 20yr old social media kid trying to get a reaction. Nikki playing victim is laughable. That nasty disposition is why people throw shade at her...all that shit she talked and can't deal with the shots being fired. Her ass will be zooted today and back to talking shit on her radio show...personailty matters so deal with the puches. this is another pussy behind the music.
and BET aint been black since Bob Johnson sold it to Viacom....Boo Hoo Nikki (the chcik that wanted to fight Hanna Montana) FOH

These companies better start fucking making sure they monitoring their social media accounts and the people running them. Probably some idiot at BET trying to be funny and slick but BET is an actual company not a gossip blog. Loose out on money with that dumb shit. Like Nicki or not, she handled it like any other artist would have.

"draggin' edges"...sounds like something a young person would say. I don't even like Nicki..really her attitude. But at the end of the day, the disrespect of that post was uncalled for. And to think this is the network that has "Black Girls Rock." But you disrespecting this lady of color? Black folks are our own worst enemy. We tear each other down every chance we get. Cardi is a woman of color and she catching hell for an award that she won. Should she have been the winner? It's questionable. But hey, she's been working hard and hustling so let her have her moment while she's hot. I'd much rather it go to her or another person of color versus Post Malone. He's not really for the culture. He's talked trash about rap and even mentioned going Country eventually. But he's making money off of "us." We gotta do better and Nicki did right by pulling out.

I remember when Karrueche Tran and the black guy were hosting a show on BET and she read the teleprompter that was talking about Blue Ivy Carter. The show was cancelled and everyone associated was fired.
