Nicki Minaj is making her issues with the Grammys Recording Academy public after being ‘bullied’ into silence for a long time.
The rapper is not holding back after her initial revelation that she has been “bullied” by the Recording Academy into staying “quiet for seven years out of fear.”
She wrote on Twitter, “I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer KEN. I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear. But I’ll tell my fans the REAL on the next episode of #QueenRadio they deserve the truth. Also, CONGRATS to everyone who won last night.”
The issue originally came to light after Nicki posted a tweet from the BET about Cardi winning Best Rap album while “Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.” Minaj responded by saying, “Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show.”
BET issued a statement to TMZ regarding the incident, saying, “BET loves Nicki Minaj. We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward.”
They added, “Unfortunately the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values. We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.”
Minaj has not responded to BET’s apology.
