Lazy eyes listen
Music industry superstar Nicki Minaj has blasted MSNBC host Joy Reid for hounding her for expressing skepticism toward the coronavirus vaccine.
Nicki Minaj had first announced on Twitter that she was not going to The Met gala over its vaccine requirement for attendees.
“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.”

Nicki further said her cousin’s friend had gotten “swollen testicles” and impotent after taking the vaccine, and advises prayers, research and safety measures.
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 13, 2021
This appeared to piss off MSNBC’s ReidOut host who said on air:
“You have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers, OK? I have 2 million followers. You have 22 million followers on Twitter,” Reid told Minaj. “For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God sister, you can do better than that! You got that platform — it’s a blessing that you got that! The people listen to you — and they listen to you more than they listen to me!”
“For you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh my God, sister. As a fan, as a hip-hop fan, as somebody who is your fan, I’m so sad that you did that, so sad that you did that, sister. Oh, my God.”

Minaj went all out against the “puppet” host:
Minaj held no punches in her response.
“This is what happens when you’re so thirsty to down another [B]lack woman (by the request of the [W]hite man), that you didn’t bother to read all my tweets,” Minaj tweeted. “‘My God SISTER do better; imagine getting ur dumb ass on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a [B]lack woman.”

Minaj went on to call Reid an “Uncle Tomiana” and a “lying homophobic c–n,” invoking the MSNBC host’s old blog that had a trove of homophobic and offensive posts.
“I guess I can join in the reindeer games too right? Ppl can go on tv & lie on me, I can report on them, too right?” Minaj tweeted. “Doesn’t have to be truths. It can be half truth.”
Minaj also shared a screenshot of a tweet Reid wrote nearly a year ago expressing doubt in the vaccine under President Trump, writing, “Who on God’s green earth would trust a vaccine by the @US-FDA?”
“Uncle Tomiana asked who on earth would trust the US FDA guys…” Minaj added.
Reid has yet to publicly respond to Minaj.
It is recalled that Kamala Harris and Joe Biden were both skeptics some months ago while President Trump lead the development of these same vaccines.
