Richard Madeley slams ‘idiot’ Nicki Minaj after her bizarre row with Chris Whitty over Covid vaccines

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. RICHARD Madeley branded US rapper Nicki Minaj an “idiot” after her bizarre spat with Professor Chris Whitty. Nicki, who has 22million Twitter followers, claimed on the social media site that a Covid vaccine left her cousin’s friend impotent. When asked about her tweet at a Government press conference, Prof Whitty said she should be “ashamed”. Speaking on today’s GMB, Susanna Reid said: “What Nicki Minaj said about the vaccine is quite a leap, let me tell you.” She then read out the star’s tweet: “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it and became impotent. His testicles became swollen. “So just pray on it and make sure you’re comfortable with your decision, not bullied.” He added: “She has no comprehension that ridiculous tweet has to do real damage.” Nicki also mocked Boris Johnson and Piers Morgan in a Twitter blast – before labelling the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg a “dumbo” who “can’t read”. She put The Establishment on blast during a bizarre social media tirade last night, which began after the Chief Medical Officer called her spurious claims about the vaccine “ridiculous” and “strange”. The rapper told her 22.6m followers that a friend of her cousin’s got the jab and his “testicles became swollen” – so she would wait for more information before getting the vaccine herself. She did not attend the Met Gala because she’s not yet vaccinated, telling fans: “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met.” And in a series of tweets, she hit out at the PM, Professor Whitty and even BBC reporter Laura – who she said couldn’t “decipher sarcasm and humour”. She also implied TV firebrand Piers was being racist after he called her “one of the rudest little madams I’ve ever met”, responding: “Sir, I’ve never met you. I know… we all look alike.” He told Brits: “There are a number of myths that fly around, some of which are just clearly ridiculous, and some of which are clearly designed to just scare. He said those who are deliberately “trying to discourage other people from taking a vaccine which could be life-saving” should be “ashamed”. Meanwhile, at this afternoon’s press conference, the PM said: “I’m not as familiar with the work of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be but I am familiar with Nikki Kanani, superstar GP of Bexley. Rapper Nicki then hit back. She initially told followers on social media of Prof Whitty: “I love him even tho I guess this was a diss? The accent ugh! Yassss boo!!!” And the star then shared a voice recording posted on Twitter with the caption: “Send this to the Prime Minister and let him know they lied on me. In the recording, she said: “Yes, hello Prime Minister, Boris, it’s Nicki Minaj – I was just calling to tell you that you were so amazing on the news this morning. “And I’m actually British. I was born there. I went to university there. I went to Oxford.  “I went to school with Margaret Thatcher. And she told me so many nice things about you.  “I’d love to send you my portfolio of my work, since you don’t know much about me, I’m a big, big star in the United States.” She was born in Trinidad and Tobago in 1982, during Margaret Thatcher’s premiership, and was raised in Queens, New York. The star then turned on Laura after the journalist retweeted one of Nicki’s posts with the caption: “2021 everyone…” Nicki said: “Yes 2021 when jacka***s hang on to my every tweet but can’t decipher sarcasm and humour, and can’t read. Go away dumbo.” The performer attracted criticism after using her platform to share a story about a man who allegedly became impotent after the jab. ©News Group Newspapers Limited in England No. 679215 Registered office: 1 London Bridge Street, London, SE1 9GF. “The Sun”, “Sun”, “Sun Online” are registered trademarks or trade names of News Group Newspapers Limited.
