BET has released a statement, denouncing the violence, and maintaining that the award show will air later this month.
“‘BET Networks works very hard to bring the best in entertainment to the city of Atlanta. For the past 7 years BET has celebrated the true art form of Hip Hop.

Local authorities are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.’
