BET Bans Nicki Minaj Music Video

BET Bans Nicki Minaj Music Video

Maybe it's a crisis of conscience realizing that there's a desperate need for better black images on TV; or maybe just because the song and video just sucks big time (I've seen it and my ears and eyes are still bleeding), but it's being reported that BET is banning Nicki Minaj's latest video, Stupid Hoe, from the network.

According to a network representative the network felt that the video, which not only features the title repeatedly sung over and over and over again, but also several almost naked women, was considered too explicit for the network.

So do you think BET did the right thing and is trying to change its image or is this censorship?
