Last night, BET chimed in on Nicki Minaj and Cardi B's deep-seated beef and now, Minaj wants smoke with the network.

Nicki Minaj says she's dropping out of her upcoming BET Experience Concert appearance after being shaded in a tweet from the network.

She tweeted, "Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show". Nothing left to do here but sit back and watch. Both Cardi and Nicki were set to co-headline the concert.

Someone over at BET had to learn the hard way - you do not come for Nicki Minaj unless she sends for you. "We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward".

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