"Young Money will no longer be apart [sic] of the BET experience or award show," Minaj tweeted on Monday afternoon, followed by a series of screencaps of fans blasting BET for its tweet. See both below (BET's original tweet has since been deleted):

The BET Experience is scheduled for June 20-22, 2019 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, with the BET Awards airing on June 23.

The rivalry between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B exploded in 2018. A physical altercation at New York Fashion Week led to Nicki Minaj poking fun through merch and on episodes of Queen Radio. Cardi subsequently broke the internet with a series of Instagram videos flaming Minaj.
