On Monday night, the rapper Nicki Minaj fired back at MSNBC host Joy Reid and conservative commentator Meghan McCain after they criticized her stance on the COVID-19 vaccine.

It all started when Minaj announced on Twitter that she would not be attending The Met Gala this year due to the requirement that all attendees be vaccinated.


“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated, it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now,” Minaj wrote. “In the meantime, my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one.”

Minaj went on to explain that she has a “cousin in Trinidad” who is refusing to take the vaccine because a friend of his claimed “his testicles became swollen” and “became impotent” as a result of getting the shot, causing his fiancé to cancel their wedding.

“So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied,” Minaj continued.


Reid responded by attacking the rapper for her opinions on the coronavirus vaccine.

“To people like Nicki Minaj, I have to say this,” Reid said. “You have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers, okay. I have two million followers. You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God, sister, you could do better than that.”

Reid went on to accuse Minaj of putting people at risk of death. This did not sit well with the songwriter, who hit back at the MSNBC host on Twitter.

“This is what happens when you’re so thirsty to down another black woman (by the request of the white man) that you didn’t bother to read all my tweets,” she tweeted. “‘My God SISTER do better’ imagine getting ur [sic] dumb a** on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a black woman.”


Not stopping there, Minaj proceeded to call Reid a “lying homophobic c**n” alongside a 2020 tweet in which the MSNBC host questioned whether people should trust the vaccine.

Minaj also lashed out at McCain after the conservative retweeted one of the rapper’s tweets along with the caption, “that’s entirely enough internet for today.” Minaj responded this by telling the daughter of the late Senator John McCain to “eat sh**.”

We applaud Minaj for sticking to her guns and slamming naysayers on both sides of the political aisle who are trying to shame her for her vaccine stance. Nobody should be forced to get the vaccine if they don’t want to, and Minaj has every right to say “no” to this shot going into her body.
