Richard Madley called American rapper Nicki Minaj an “idiot” after her bizarre feud with Professor Chris Whitty.
Nikki, who has 22 million Twitter followers, claimed on the social media site that a COVID vaccine made her cousin’s friend impotent.
Asked about his tweet at a government press conference, Prof Whitty said he should be “shame”.
While Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was not familiar with his work.
Speaking on today’s GMB, Susannah Reid said: “What Nicki Minaj said about the vaccine is quite a leap, let me tell you.”
Then she read the star’s tweet: “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.”
Richard replied: “What an idiot.”
He added: “They have no understanding that ridiculous tweets cause real harm.”
Nicki also mocked Boris Johnson and Piers Morgan in a Twitter blast – before labeling the BBC’s Laura Kuensberg a “dumbo” who “can’t read”.
She blasted The Establishment last night in a tizzy on social media, beginning after the chief medical officer called her false claims about the vaccine “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 the 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.”
And in a series of tweets, he hit out at the PM, Professor Whitty and even BBC reporter Laura – who he said “can’t understand the satire and humour”.
She also revealed that TV firebrand Pierce was racist when he called her “one of the rudest little madams I’ve ever met”, responding: “Sir, I’ve never met you. I know… we’re all the same. look like.”
A deeply strange conflict ensues when Professor Whitty responds to misinformation on Jobs.
He told the Brits: “There are many myths that fly around, some of which are plainly ridiculous, and some of which are clearly designed 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 Canaanni.
“She will tell you that vaccines are wonderful and that everyone should get them.
“So I like to listen to Nikki Canaanite.”
After this, rapper Nicky retaliated. 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.
she is awesome… one of the harshest little madams i’ve ever met
“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.
“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 star turned on Laura after the journalist retweeted a post by Nicki with the caption: “2021 everyone…”
Nikki added: “Yeah 2021 when Jacka*** hangs up on my every tweet, but can’t understand the sarcasm and humour, can’t read anymore. Dumbo go away.”
The artist attracted criticism after using his platform to share a story about a man who was reportedly impotent after a jab.
There is no evidence to support any suggestion of a link between impotence and jab.
