Piers Morgan and Nicki Minaj get into heated Twitter debate that started from COVID vaccines
Trust Piers Morgan to land himself right in the center of a controversy. A few days back, Nicki Minaj came under fire for her anti-vaccine comments. She made matters worse by trying to justify her comments and getting into arguments. At the same time, Twitterati came up with hilarious memes. While she fought at multiple fronts, Morgan decided it was time for his appearance. Since then, the two have been in a back-and-forth Twitter feud.
While sharing her decision to not attend MET Gala, Nicki Minaj confessed to being an anti-vaxxer
On Monday, celebrities came together for MET Gala. In order to keep everyone safe from COVID-19, the organizers made a rule to allow only the fully vaccinated guests. Many influencers, YouTubers, and TikTokers made their debut on the red carpet. However, many regular A-listers were missing from the gala. Among them was Nicki Minaj, who decided to stay home. While the decision was fine, her reason for it made many people angry. According to Minaj, she is still doing her own research about the vaccine for COVID-19. At the same time, she said that no one can force her to get the vaccination.
While people were still trying to wrap their heads around it, Minaj threw another bomb
In a tweet, which has since become a subject of countless memes, she said:
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied
This led to a war between Nicki Minaj and several people including Piers Morgan.
Things got so bad that Chief Medical Officer of England had to step forward
After her comments went viral, many health experts came forward with facts. According to them, her comments can influence her fans to not get vaccinated. Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England, also had some words for the Anaconda singer. During a press conference, he said:
“There are a number of myths that fly around… some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scare. That happens to be one of them. That is untrue.”
At the same time, Whitty said that whoever spreads misinformation should be ashamed of themselves.
During their online spat, Piers Morgan and Minaj threw dirt on each other
This encouraged Piers Morgan to come forward with his own criticism. In a tweet, he said:
“Professor Whitty beefing with the ghastly @NICKIMINAJ (one of the rudest little madams I’ve ever met) is not the breaking news that I expected today – but it’s most welcome. She’s peddling lies that will cost lives.”
If Piers Morgan thought Nicki Minaj would stay quiet, he was proven wrong soon enough. She clapped back with an equally snarky tweet and said:
Sir I’ve never met you. I know… we all look alike. “Rudest little madam”. I like it. Has a special ring to it. Thanks Pierce. Love the accent. I’d love to come chat. Scones. Tea. Clown nose & big red shoes for you. Lmk babe
After that, Morgan reminded her about their meeting and said:
Madam, we met on @AGT when you appeared as a guest act – but you refused to say hello to my three young sons because you were ‘too busy’. Oh, and it’s ‘Piers’ – I know, we Brit names all sound alike.
This particular tweet made Minaj a bit angry. In response to it, she said:
Stop f**kng lying. I never turn down pics with kids. If a middle person told you that, they were out of line. don’t blame me you stupid piece of s**t.
After her spat with Piers Morgan, Nicki Minaj changed her Twitter bio to ‘Rudest little Madam’. At the same time, she put Union Jack emoji next to it. Despite his efforts, Piers Morgan could not get to Minaj. For now, there is silence on both fronts. Let’s see what happens next in this saga.
