Taylor Swift has admitted it was a mistake when she chose to directly address Nicki Minaj on Twitter earlier this week. At the time, the “Bad Blood” singer took issue with a tweet Nicki posted that questioned why MTV failed to nominate “Anaconda” for the “Video of the Year” VMA.

Taylor caught some backlash for turning Nicki’s complaints about the entertainment industry’s treatment of Black women into a personal critique about her. Today (July 23) Swift returned to Twitter to offer a formal, public apology to Nicki. The Young Money rapper accepted the mea culpa.
