Although the network did not say what make them decide not to air the video, sources said that it is just too explicit for TV.
Nicki Minaj's music video for her explicit single "Stupid Hoe" is not accepted on BET, a report from TMZ said. The Hype Williams-directed video was premiered less than two weeks ago and received 4.8 million views on VEVO within 24 hours, breaking a record on the video-sharing site for most views in shortest amount of time.
Nevertheless, BET is not going to run it on their screen. A representative of the network would not specify the reason of the ban, only saying they will not broadcast it. However, sources told TMZ that the video is simply because it is too explicit for television.
Beside the profanity in the lyrics, the video shows some nearly-naked female figures. Minaj herself is dressed in cartoonish outfit as a foul-mouthed barbie, writhing around in a cage.
When it was debuted for the first time, the video hit online media instead of television because "it's important that my art is not tampered with, or compromised prior to you viewing it for the 1st time," so the female rapper explained.
