Meghan McCain Blasts Nicki Minaj as ‘Irresponsible’ and Says She’s ‘Team Cardi B’
Meghan McCain did not hold back after Nicki Minaj clapped back at her. After the rapper made a claim that a cousin’s friend in Trinidad had an adverse reaction to the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine shot, the former The View co-host made a snarky comment. Minaj replied to McCain and now the latter is blasting the rapper as “irresponsible” and saying she is a fan of Cardi B.
How did the feud between Nicki Minaj and Meghan McCain start?
Minaj made headlines this week when she made a claim that a cousin’s friend in Trinidad became impotent after getting the coronavirus vaccine. Due to the latter, the rapper alleged that the friend who was about to get married didn’t end up doing so because the issue became a problem between the couple.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent,” Minaj tweeted. “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.”
Meghan McCain fires back at Nicki Minaj for ‘losing her mind’ at her
The drama between McCain and Minaj didn’t end there. McCain returned to Twitter to fire back at the “Starships” hitmaker for spreading “vaccine hesitancy” with her fanbase.
“You have an enormous platform and have just spread unimaginable vaccine hesitancy to your fans,” McCain tweeted. “Not only is it deeply irresponsible, it is very sad. I hope you talk to doctors and scientists like @ashishkjha like I did eventually. People are still dying from covid.”
At the end of McCain’s tweet, she added “#TeamCardi,” making a call back to the feud between Minaj and Cardi B and continuing the narrative of pitting two women rappers against each other.
In another tweet, McCain said she “didn’t have a famous rapper losing her mind at [her] for not being an anti-vaxxer on Twitter on [her] 2021 bingo card.”
McCain has always been in favor of the vaccine and continuously pushed it during her time on The View. In fact, she even pitched working with the Biden administration to help reach out to more Republican-identifying people to get them vaccinated.
“In all seriousness, I, my husband, and [my] entire family are all vaccinated. I had questions and was lucky enough to talk to
@ashishkjha who answered everything. Please rely on doctors and scientist and not celebrities. My friends uncle just died of covid last week (unvaccinated),” she tweeted.
Nicki Minaj needs more time to reasearch
Although the narrative painted was that Minaj was against getting vaccinated, she never actually said that. The rapper said she needed more time to do research around the vaccine.
“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 tweeted. “In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one.”
In a separate tweet, Minaj advised her fans to get vaccinated if they live in a country where it’s mandatory to have it at work.
“A lot of countries won’t let ppl work w/o the vaccine. I’d def recommend they get the vaccine. They have to feed their families. I’m sure I’ll b vaccinated as well cuz I have to go on tour, etc,” she said on Twitter.
Furthermore, Minaj’s claim about possibly facing impotence from the vaccine has been debunked by the government of Trinidad and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
