Nicki Minaj mocks Boris Johnson in a video recorded for the PM after his feud with Chris Whitty.
The rapper is embroiled in a bizarre row with England’s chief medical officer after he described her claims about the vaccine as “ridiculous” and “weird”.
The rapper told her 22.6 million followers that a friend of her cousin’s got the jab and that her “testicles are swollen”—so she’ll wait for more information before getting the vaccine herself.
She didn’t attend last night’s Met Gala because she hasn’t vaccinated yet, telling fans: “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated it won’t be for the Met.”
Responding to the misinformation on the jabs, Professor Whitty said: “There are many myths that fly around, some of which are plainly ridiculous, and some of which are clearly designed just to scare.
“It happens to be one of them. And that’s untrue.”
He said those who are deliberately “trying to discourage other people from taking the life-saving vaccine” should be “shame”.
Meanwhile, at this afternoon’s press conference, the PM said: “I’m not as familiar with Nicki Minaj’s work as I probably should be, but I’m familiar with Bexley’s superstar GP Nicki Cannani.
“She will tell you that vaccines are wonderful and that everyone should get them.
“So I like to listen to Nikki Canaanite.”
Rapper Nicky has already hit back – using a witty British accent to address Mr Johnson directly.
She initially told followers on Pro Whitty’s social media: “I love him, even though I think it was a disservice? Pronounced uh! yass boo!!!”
The star then shared a voice recording posted on Twitter with the caption: “Send this to the PM and tell him he lied to me.
“I forgave him. No one else. Only him.”
In the recording, she said: “Yeah, Prime Minister, Boris, it’s Nicki Minaj – I was calling to let you know you were pretty amazing on this news this morning.
she is awesome… one of the harshest little madams i’ve ever met
“And I’m really 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 a lot of nice things about you.
“I’d love to send you a portfolio of my work, because you don’t know much about me, I’m a big, big star in the United States.”
Nikki’s video is clearly tongue-in-cheek.
She was born in Trinidad and Tobago during the 1982 premiere of Margaret Thatcher, and raised in Queens, New York.
The artist has attracted criticism after using his platform to share a story about a man who became impotent after an alleged jab.
There is no evidence to support any suggestion of a link between impotence and jab.
She tweeted: “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine because his friend got it and became impotent. His testicles are swollen.
“It was a few weeks before her friend got married, now the girl has annulled the wedding.
“So just pray on it and make sure you’re comfortable with your decision, not bullied.”
A recent study in the US showed that both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are safe for the male reproductive system.
And Piers Morgan has weighed in on the row this afternoon.
He added: “Professor Whitty beefing up with the awesome Nicki Minaj (one of the harshest madams I’ve ever met) isn’t the breaking news I expected today – but it’s most welcome.
“She is lying that will cost her life.”
