M.I.A. Incites Backlash For Saying She’d ‘Choose Death’ Over Coronavirus Vaccine

Published: Thursday 26th Mar 2020 by Rashad

If you thought M.I.A.‘s recent return after a lengthy absence from headlines wouldn’t be accompanied without a bit of controversy, you’re just kidding yourself.

As celebrities get slammed left and right for their pseudo-esoteric thoughts regarding the coronavirus pandemic (like we reported here), the ‘Bad Girls’ beauty thought it a good time to add her name to the list.  Taking to Twitter Wednesday (March 25), she launched a series of posts to indicate her stance on vaccination – namely those related to COVID-19.

Needless to say, the rhetoric wasn’t exactly well-received.  Look inside to see what we mean:

The now-deleted tweets above incited fury among vaccination supporters, leading M.I.A. to have to respond to commenters individually.

 “Yeah in America they made me [vaccinate] my child before the school admission,” she wrote, per Billboard.“It was the hardest thing. To not have choice over this as a mother. I never wanna feel that again. He was so sick for 3 weeks then Docs had to pump him with antibiotics to reduce the fever from 3 vaxins.”

Elaborating on the above, she said:

“As an adult you have choice! By then you’ve built your immune system. You have a choice as an ‘adult’ wishing you all good health. Most of science is in bed with business. Business is in bed with banks, banks are in bed with tech, techs in bed with us, we re in bed with corona. Corona is in bed with science. So on…”

The backlash led M.I.A. to post the following:

    She could have sent her child to another school or home schooled. .. she had a choice. ..

    • Chileplease March 26, 2020

      Exactly. Home school them!

    I agree with her. I’ve never taken the flu shot as an adult and I can’t remember the last time I had the flu. You don’t know what they’re putting in those vaccines, but I can tell you what they’re putting in their pockets playing on people’s fears.

      Same. No shot, no flu. I get laryngitis if am really reckless with sudden temperature changes, as well as seasonal allergies. My aunt is a diabetic and her doc insists that she get the shot. She does and STILL gets the flu. The time I had read chicken fetuses and mercury were found as contents WAS IT.

    • Chileplease March 27, 2020

      Well I never had the flu shot and was in the hospital with the flu earlier this year with a temperature of 104 and loss consciousness numerous times , so your point means nothing. Just because you never had it, doesn’t mean you won’t get it and you better pray you don’t get a terrible strain like I did.

      • PinotNoir March 27, 2020

        Glad you got over your ailment. God, we ask you not to change our fates, but to soften the blow. Amen.

      • Chileplease March 27, 2020

        Thank you

  7. Pat March 26, 2020

    I agree though…lol

    • PinotNoir March 26, 2020

      Death tho? ?

  8. PinotNoir March 26, 2020

    Jenny McCarthy … you got a new acolyte. ? The chip she speaks of is nowhere but on HER SHOULDER. Her career could have used a bird flu shot since flipping the bird @Superbowl pretty much ended it. ? While I respect her “pro life” choices and vaccine mercury contents raise my brow, choosing death is too radical. Does shock value still sell? ?

  9. J March 26, 2020

    I feel the same way until this administration leaves and it has been out for a while. We are in for a very tough few years

  10. SNF March 26, 2020

    Im with her. I dont want the vaccine…

    • Justmeeeee March 27, 2020

      Exactly
