Nicki Minaj and Boris Johnson have got into a huge spat and it’s the beef we never knew we needed.
The drama kicked off when the American tweeted that she wouldn’t be attending the Met Gala as it was required that all guests were fully vaccinated and she wanted to do more ‘research’ before agreeing to have it.
She went on to claim that her cousin’s friend had become ‘impotent’ after getting the jab and said that fellow rapper Drake told her he still managed to catch Covid after being fully vaccinated.
She said: “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.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine because his friend got it and became impotent.”
Mr Johnson then slammed her comments during a live coronavirus briefing from Downing Street.
He said: “I’m not as familiar with the works of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be, but I am familiar with the work of [Dr] Nikki Kanani, who is a superstar GP of Bexley who will tell you that vaccines are wonderful and everybody should get them, so I would prefer to listen to her.”
Nicki responded by poking fun at the Prime Minister, tweeting: “I love him even though I guess this was a diss? The accent ugh! Yassss boo!”
She later released a voice note which she captioned: “Send this to the Prime Minister and let him know they lied on me. I forgive him. No one else. Only him.”
In the clip, Minaj puts on a British accent, claiming to have gone to school with Margaret Thatcher and university at Oxford, and promises to send over a portfolio of her work to Mr Johnson
Chris Whitty has now spoken out and said that Minaj ‘should be ashamed’ of her comments and Sajid Javid has also slammed her tweets as ‘ridiculous’.
