Anthony Saleh Blasts BET
Nas‘ manager Anthony Saleh took to social media on Friday and blasted BET for firing Zola Mashariki while she was on medical leave battling breast cancer.
In a lengthy message on his Instagram page, Anthony voiced his disgust with BET and Debra Lee for treating a woman who is “fighting for her life” in such a way.
He went on to apologize to everyone, especially Nas for selling his “Street Dreams” pilot to “wack a** BET.”

This is the America I’m putting my energy towards. Debra Lee you have the audacity to do something so disgusting to someone fighting for their life. We discuss diversity amongst each other almost every day. Women & African Americans are two of the most deprived minority groups in this country & they are also the least likely to fight for one another. How could we ever allow someone fighting to live get news like this dumped on their f**king head. all you folks wanna have all these f**king opinions about our president but don’t want to even look out for the person that looks like you, struggles like you & fought the same fights as you. This is one of the most pathetic things I’ve ever seen in my career. To my father & brother who gave their lives for me to have a shot at being great, to my family who has always supported me despite my absence, to my friends that have been patient with me… I apologize to you all. I let you down. I sold a show to WACK ASS BET. To @nas … I finally made my first mistake & it was a big one. I’m gonna walk with shame and humility publicly on this one but god knows I’m gonna do something about it. And to Zola …. we sold our show to you. You were the only reason & you legitimized that place. Watch my little ass take that f**king place down. Save the opinions too. I ain’t having it today. Happy F**KING FRIDAY!
Tell them how you really feel, Anthony.
Quiet as kept…I’m still waiting to see that “Street Dreams” pilot.
