Nicki Minaj Joins Ariana Grande In Slamming Grammys Producer: "I Was Bullied"

Is it really an awards show if it isn't marred by a whole lotta controversy?

After Ariana Grande slammed Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich for "lying" about her reasons for pulling out of a performance at this year's Grammys, fellow muso and close friend, Nicki Minaj, has followed suit, revealing that she was  "bullied" by the Recording Academy.

In a juicy tweet, the 'Chun-Li' rapper alleged that she had "pissed off" Ehrlich, effectively blacklisting her from receiving an award despite her success in the hip hop genre.

"I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer KEN," the 36-year-old rapper wrote in her post.

"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."

She concluded, "Also, CONGRATS to everyone who won last night."

Ariana previously spilled tea on the producer after he claimed that the '7 Rings' singer "felt it was too late for her to pull something together," and thus decided to pull out of performing at the awards ceremony.

In true Grande fashion, the 26-year-old hit back at Ehrlich's claims over Twitter, saying, “I’ve kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me. I can pull together a performance overnight and you know that, Ken. It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more."

Fans immediately took aim at the publication, branding the tweet as "trash" and "tasteless," with many urging Nicki to boycott the award show.
