Nicki Minaj and Piers Morgan have been duking it out via Twitter on Tuesday (Sept. 14) after the English broadcaster chimed in to her controversial vaccine posts.
On Monday, the rapper revealed that she skipped the 2021 Met Gala due to its vaccine requirement and further explained how she was opting out of getting the jab until she conducts more research herself. Within her viral tweets about the vaccine, Minaj also shared a story about how one of her cousins suffered from adverse side effects after being vaccinated in her native Trinidad.
Professor Chris Whitty, England's chief medical officer and the U.K. government's chief medical adviser, commented on Minaj's claims in a press conference Tuesday, saying she should be "ashamed," adding that there are "a number of myths that fly around, some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scare. That happens to be one of them."
