Nicki Minaj pulls out of BET concert after network's tweet

LOS ANGELES — Nicki Minaj says she's cancelling her appearance at the BET Experience Concert after the network tweeted about her and fellow rapper Cardi B.

Minaj said Monday on social media that she won't perform at the concert or BET Awards. It comes after BET tweeted Sunday that Minaj was "being dragged by her lacefront" following Cardi B's Grammy win for best rap album.

A rep for Minaj didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
