Nicki Minaj is unleashing on MSNBC’s Joy Reid for being “so thirsty to down one other black lady,” after the TV host lectured the rapper for her COVID-19 vaccine skepticism.
Minaj’s expletive-laden rant towards Reid was posted to Twitter Monday evening after the rap star wrote about her hesitancy to get the shot amid Met Gala requiring proof of vaccination.
“They need you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated it received’t for the Met. It’ll be as soon as I really feel I’ve executed sufficient analysis. I’m engaged on that now. In the meantime my loves, be secure. Wear the masks with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that unfastened one,” Minaj tweeted.
In a follow-up tweet, the rapper wrote: “My cousin in Trinidad received’t get the vaccine cuz his buddy obtained it & turned impotent. His testicles turned swollen. His buddy was weeks away from getting married, now the woman known as off the marriage. So simply pray on it & be sure you’re snug with ur choice, not bullied.”
Minaj’s vaccine skepticism didn’t sit nicely with the MSNBC host, who devoted a portion of her show “The ReidOut” to rail towards the rapper and accuse her of not selling the shot to her 22 million Twitter followers.
Reid mentioned she was executed hand-holding and begging unvaccinated individuals who do “analysis on Tik Tok” to get the shot.
“People like Nicki Minaj, you could have a platform that’s 22 million followers. I’ve 2 million,” Reid mentioned.
“For you to make use of your platform to encourage our group to not shield themselves and save their lives, my God, you may do higher than that. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing that you just obtained that. That individuals hearken to you and they hearken to you greater than they hearken to me,” she mentioned.
“For you to make use of your platform to place individuals within the place of dying from a illness they don’t need to die from, oh, my God! As a hip-hop fan, as any individual who’s your fan, I’m so unhappy that you just did that. So unhappy that you just did that, sister. Oh, my God. Lord.”
Minaj then turned on Reid in a collection of profanity-laden tweets that accused the TV host of mendacity, spreading a false narrative and attempting to “down a black lady.”
“This is what occurs once you’re so thirsty to down one other black lady (by the request of the white man), that you just didn’t trouble to learn all my tweets. ‘My God SISTER do higher’ think about getting ur dumb a– on television a min after a tweet to unfold a false narrative a few black lady,” Minaj tweeted.
The rapper then dragged up an undated tweet from Reid that questioned how individuals may belief the FDA and CDC concerning the vaccine, in addition to 2018 studies during which the TV host was revealed to have written homophobic weblog posts.
“A mendacity homophobic c–n. I suppose I can be part of within the reindeer video games too proper? Ppl can go on television & lie on me, I can report on them, too proper? Smiling face. Doesn’t need to be truths. It will be half truths. Uncle Tomiana requested who on earth would belief the US FDA guys…,” Minaj tweeted.
Reid hasn’t publicly responded to being placed on blast by Minaj.
