As the coronavirus continues to spread at a dangerous rate, and scientists are working to create a vaccine, M.I.A. has revealed a controversial opinion.

The rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday (March 25) to announce, "If I have to choose the vaccine or chip I'm gonna choose death."

When a follower called her out for being an "anti vaxxer," the rapper responded with, "Yeah in America they made me [vaccinate] my child before the school admission. It was the hardest thing. To not have choice over this as a mother. I never wanna feel that again. He was so sick for 3 weeks then Docs had to pump him with antibiotics to reduce the fever from 3 vaxins."

"As an adult you have choice! By then you've built your immune system. You have a choice as an "adult" wishing you all good health," she continued in a since-deleted tweet, before adding, "Don't panic you are ok. You are not gonna die. You can make it without stressing the medical systems. Just breathe. You are going to be ok. You can make it through without jumping in the frying pan. You are fine. All the vaccines [you've] already had is enough to see you through."

M.I.A. is ready to face backlash, concluding with the statement: "Cancelling is irrelevant!"
