Despite shattering VEVO records, Nicki Minaj’s latest video is getting the gasface from the folks over at BET.

According to TMZ, the network has decided to not to air the Hype Williams directed clip, despite its popularity. Over the years, BET has tried to clean up their image, ditching the BET Uncut-esque videos, for less risque versions.

Although the network didn’t give specifics about why they refused so show Nicki’s vid, I’m willing to bet it had something to do with the constant refrain of “stupid hoe” throughout the entire song, or they just agree it sucks.

What do you think? Should the video be banned?

    I would have loved to hear why BET banned the video, as that network has been known to have highly questionable reasons why they ban a video.

    It wasn’t so long ago that BET banned this video because it was “too intelligent for the viewing audience”. Way to call your viewers stupid BET!

    I agree. That song is a hot mess

  • girlformerlyknownasgrace

    I am with you britni. They probably rejected it because the quality of the visuals could potentially induce blindness or a seizure in viewers.

    LOL I’m glad it got banned from somewhere. That song is terrible.

  • theMuseintheMirror

    I actually don’t understand why they banned the video. Seems like a double standard if you ask me.

    Think about it. If you watch 106 & Park and all the degrading videos created/performed by men. SMH. Low quality.

    thank god. finally BET did something right! Although they should be run up on a stick for banning Ciara. There was absolutely no reason for that.

    Thank God. Finally, BET did something right! Although they should be run up on a stick for banning Ciara. There was absolutely no reason for that.

    while we’re at it can we deport her too………?

    Should the video be banned? What difference does it make? The video is out there and has already been seen by millions. With technology being as advanced as it is, banning the video from BET means nothing.

    of course i don’t think this video should see the light of day on any television network but isn’t BET the same network that airs videos of male artists with blatant sexual references, if Ciara can’t gyrate her coochie on BET and if Nicki can’t banter about “stupud hoes” then why is Trey Songz allowed to lick ice down a woman’s thighs, why is it acceptable for Lil Wayne to parade around in his videos with a red banana and a body full of tattoos with women coochie popping (having nothing to do with the video) and it has the opportunity to become the number one video on 106, BET has taken a turn for the worse and they’ve been spinning in coonery for a good while now, so if they’re going to ban this video ban all of the ones like it.

    Says Mr. Black nation builder.

  • Jen

    bahahahaha all those Vevo views are from people ridiculing the video!

  • erica

    i wonder if big sean’s “ass” video is banned on bet

  • jamesfrmphilly

    it was a joke, relax, exhale………

  • Jenning

    Yes! banned that black b*t(h… Happy Black History Month! You ppl is POOR!!

  • Sydney

    I agree! The video is horrible, but if this video is banned, then there’s a whole lot more that should go on the list too!

  • Tonton Michel

    There idea of what goes and what stays does seem random.

  • DBG

    HA! First they ban Little Brother for being too smart for the BET audience, now they ban Nicki for being too controversial?

    BET has truly become schizo.

  • Bisous

    You have great taste PA. Let me count the ways love Little Brother. HOW was THIS banned come on now!?

  • mluv

    if they ban this video they might as well ban other videos…

    Bisous, I’m a huge fan of Little Brother, both of their group albums as well as solo projects. I hated how BET did them as well as De La Soul (Their video for “Shopping Bags” got banned around the same time for almost the exact same reason). I lost respect for the network after that whole fiasco as well as them firing Tavis Smiley for questionable reasons.

    This article will forever be ingrained in the minds of hip hop heads:

    As far as Nicki Minaj, I don’t listen to her music at all but I was curious to see why she got banned by BET- as well as Ciara for the “Ride” video. After what they did to LB, I just know they have some stupid reason to justify it.
