BET has reportedly banned Nicki Minaj's video for "Stupid Hoe." The video, which was directed by music video legend Hype Williams, includes a flashing image of a naked Barbie doll with an expanding backside along with colorful images of cars, jungle cats and the rapper in a variety of wigs and outfits.

A representative of BET told TMZ that the network would not be broadcasting the clip, but declined to offer a particular reason for banning it. Lack of airplay on BET has done little to curb the popularity of the video, which has racked up over 20,000,000 views on YouTube since debuting on the site on January 20th.
