New Sun columnist Piers Morgan tears into Nikki Minaj for ‘spewing anti-vaxx rubbish online’
NEW Sun columnist and talkTV star Piers Morgan tore into popstar Nicki Minaj – accusing her of “spewing garbage” online.
Minaj caused controversy last week by claiming that the Covid vaccine had made her cousin’s friend impotent.
But Piers furiously backed our scientists, including Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty who said Minaj should be “ashamed”.
He said: “Chris Whitty was right about Nicki Minaj. People with big followings just spew their garbage online. If I try and retweet Ronaldo’s goal tonight within 10 seconds someone will remove it, but Nicki Minaj’s tweets are still up.”
Superbass singer Minaj has been accused of spreading conspiracy theories by saying her friend had swollen testicles after getting the jab.
But Piers, who has had Covid himself, backed our Jabs Army campaign for volunteers to help with the vaccine rollout and urged everyone to ignore such false claims.
He said: “The key message which The Sun has been brilliant at delivering is you have got to get jabbed.
“The Jabs Army is so important. The rates of serious death if you have been vaccinated are negligible compared to if you are not vaccinated. I got jabbed so when I got Covid I got it a bit rough but that was it. I didn’t go to hospital and I didn't die.”
Piers was delighted to be reunited with his old friend Kate Garraway – who handed out the gong for Best Nurse at The Sun's Who Cares Wins Awards.
Kate also told the audience that husband Derek Draper, who spent more than a year in hospital after coronavirus “wreaked havoc” on his body, was doing better.
Piers said: “Poor Derek is still laying there trying to recover from a horrendous experience 16 months ago. He would have absolutely given everything in his world and so would Kate for them to have had a vaccine.
"Everyone now saying they can’t be bothered or believing some conspiracy garbage needs to talk to Kate and understand what she has been through.”
Piers is set to write a new column for The Sun and the New York Post, as well as front a global TV show for our new channel talkTV, in a groundbreaking deal with The Sun’s parent company News Corp.
But while he has much to celebrate himself – he said it was more important we hail our health heroes.
He said: "These people went to war for us, they literally went into battle every day to save the lives of complete strangers, and many of them lost their lives.
"We have one of the best healthcare systems in the world, certainly one of the most selfless workforces so I'm just thrilled that you guys are celebrating tonight."
The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards will be broadcast on Channel 4 and All 4 on Sunday at 7.30pm – sponsored by The National Lottery.
