One day after the Grammy Awards aired, Cardi B. posted a video to Instagram defending herself and explaining how hard she worked on her Invasion of Privacy album.

Television network BET has issued an apology to Nicki Minaj for a tweet that poked fun at the rapper following Cardi B's win at the Grammys.

Cardi B originally posted two rants in defence of her win, one of which was deleted before she took down her whole account and was an expletive-filled video in which she said she was sick of being dragged down. I remember last year when I didn't win for Bodak Yellow, everybody was like, "Cardi got snubbed" now this year, it's a f*cking problem?

The rapper said she worked hard and throughout her pregnancy on her first album "Invasion of Privacy".

According to TMZ, BET's now-deleted tweet featured a link to an article on its site about Cardi B's wins at the 2019 Grammys along with the text: "Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront". We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.
