Nicki Minaj blasts ‘dumb*ss’ Joy Reid after igniting vaccine firestorm with eye-popping tweets

One could argue that America pays more attention to the opinions of celebrities than we should, but a dust-up between the angry race lady at MSNBC, Joy Reid, and Nicki Minaj, the Trinidadian-born rapper, is just too appetizing to ignore.

It all began when Minaj, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, took to social media to say she will get vaccinated “once I feel I’ve done enough research.”

Which is not to say she is taking the matter lightly, as the singer explained in a tweet that she was in the process of doing just that and reminding followers to be careful.

“In the meantime my loves, be safe,” Minaj tweeted. “Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one.”

She didn’t help her cause when she shared a fanciful tale of the fate that befell her cousin’s friend when he got the COVID-19 vaccine.

Her endpoint being valid though, that she will not be “bullied” into getting the shot.

“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,” she tweeted.

There are some concerns about the side effects of the vaccine, with persistent reports of it causing myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle. Blood-clotting issues were reported with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and there have also been reports that the vaccine affects some women’s menstrual cycle, but the Big Tech information strangle has little patience for talk of these matters.

In an earlier tweet, Minaj, who gave birth to her first child in October, revealed that she had contracted COVID-19, and commented on not being able “to kiss or hold your tiny baby for over a week.”

All of which pushed Reid to her “limit,” as she explained on the prime time platform MSNBC gifted her to spew her radical left-wing ideology.

“I’ve reached my limit,” she said, in a segment that essentially justified forcing people to get vaccinated. “I’m not begging anyone else.”

In her element when browbeating others — and distracting from her own flaws — Reid then turned her attention to her “sister” Minaj.

“And people like Nicki Minaj, I have to say this: You have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers. Ok? I have two million followers,” Reid said. “You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my god, sister, you could do better than that.”

“You got that platform — it’s a blessing. It’s a blessing that you got that, that 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. As a fan, as a hip hop fan, as somebody who is your fan, I am so sad that you did that. So sad that you did that, sister. Oh, my god.”

The inconvenient factor here is that, according to her own account, Minaj has natural immunity — this bit of science being swept under the rug by the political class.

In fact, Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked Sunday about natural immunity granting more protection than the vaccine alone, and he replied, “I don’t have a really firm answer for you on that.”

While he went on to say there’s no certainty on the “durability” of natural immunity, Fauci did not dispute that it offers protection.

Minaj responded to Reid’s slight and it wasn’t pretty. The rapper slammed the MSNBC host for “getting ur dumb ass on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a black woman.”

“This is what happens when you’re so thirsty to down another black woman (by the request of the white man), that you didn’t bother to read all my tweets,” she began.

Sticking with the theme that Reid was performing for the white man, Minaj took a shot at her panelists for agreeing “cuz this uncle tomiana doing the work chile.”

Ouch.

One of the panelists, Charlie Sykes, responded to the tweet: “Yes. I nodded. Because she was absolutely right about your anti vax nonsense. Which is very sad.”
