ASAP Bari has disputed City Girls rapper JT's assertion that he was to blame for her fight with her partner Lil Uzi Vert at the BET Awards earlier this year.

In an Instagram Stories post shared on his private Instagram account (@younglord), Bari shared a screenshot of JT's recent interview on The Breakfast Club and provided his thoughts on her comments.

"He ain't want you setting there dusty bitch," wrote Bari, who is a good friend of Lil Uzi Vert. "Stop lying.. She was really mad about ice spice not about me. She called him a groupie cause he was sitting next to her. Bitch sold 6k talking about me."

In separate follow-ups, Bari wrote "I got respect for all woman" and "I'm always the bad guy huh."

JT appeared to catch wind of Bari's comments and shared several tweets on Thursday.

]"Hoe ass n***as be so jealous of bitches!" she wrote, without naming names. "If I can turn nothing into something, what make you think I can't turn something into some more?!"

Bari's comments refer to a video of an altercation between Uzi and JT at the BET Awards earlier this year. In the clip, JT could be seen tossing her phone at Lil Uzi Vert, with observers speculating it was over Uzi sitting next to Ice Spice. “Bitch!” JT could be heard saying. “What the fuck wrong with you, bitch?”

At the time, sources close to JT said Ice Spice wasn't to blame for the incident and she was simply agitated after losing her seat.

In her interview on The Breakfast Club with fellow City Girls rapper Yung Miami this week, JT directly addressed the moment.

“The reason I threw my phone at Uzi is because [they] had to perform. So, you know when you have to perform at an award show you have to be there earlier. ... We get in there, and baby, I’m so sorry when I say this. Uzi is like a frantic kid. [They] move around a lot... So when [they] got off stage, [they] came to me like, ‘Come on. Let’s go, let’s go,’” JT explained around the 57-minute point of her interview on The Breakfast Club, as seen below. “Then I had on this big ass dress. I had on a huge dress. So I’m thinking [they're] leaving and about to send somebody back to come and get me. When I get up, he down there chillin’ with [ASAP] Bari.”

She shot down speculation she was upset about Uzi sitting next Ice Spice and suggested it was just about the Pink Tape rapper falling to secure her a seat. "It was never about another artist because an artist is supposed to be there. It was never about that. It’s about that you made sure that Bari was in his seat," she continued. "You ain't no rapper, you should've got up."
