However, the individual running the verified Twitter account used that opportunity to throw shade at Cardi's rival. "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show", she revealed today.

Fans immediately called out BET for the insensitive post.

BET is conducting an internal investigation into their social media practice after Nicki Minaj condemned an offensive tweet they sent her.

BET posted a story reporting on Cardi B being the first solo female rapper to win best rap album at the Grammys.

Now, the company has issued an apology and insisted the post "should never have been written".

Cardi B Defends Her Grammy Win in Expletive-Filled Video
After being named the Grammy victor at the 61st annual ceremony, Cardi accepted the trophy alongside her Migos rapper husband, 27. And the very next day Cardi B was not only showing off her battle scars but also engaged in a war of words.

Nicki was due to put on a headline performance at Los Angeles' Staples Center during BET weekend in June but she was encouraging her followers to get refunds on Monday.

In another post, Nicki thanked her fans for their support, writing.

Only time will tell if Weezy will boycott this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards, but for now, don't expect to see Nicki. "And further does not reflect our company values".

BET has officially released a statement apologizing to Minaj, according to Pitchfork.

The network added: "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her". We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation. "That's not my style and that's not what I'm with and I don't support that". As of Monday afternoon, her name still appears on BET Experience's official site, as does that of another co-headliner, one who-perhaps tellingly-is slated to perform on a different night: Cardi B. To everyone who said something sweet, thank you.
