Nicki Minaj’s latest scathing attack was on Piers Morgan on Tuesday.

The rapper turned on Boris Johnson and Professor Chris Whitty for calling her “ridiculous” after she sensationally claimed the Covid vaccine makes people impotent in a tweet to her 22million followers.

Now the singer sparked another feud when Mr Morgan riled her up on Twitter and hailed her as “one of the rudest little madams” he’s ever met in the showbiz world.

The Anaconda hitmaker fired back at the presenter saying he had a “clown nose” and insisted they had never met.

Mr Morgan wrote: “Professor Whitty beefing with the ghastly @NICKIMINAJ (one of the rudest little madams I’ve ever met) is not the breaking news that I expected today - but it’s most welcome. She’s peddling lies that will cost lives.”

She responded: “Sir I’ve never met you. I know… we all look alike. “Rudest little madam”. I like it. Has a special ring to it. Thanks Pierce. Love the accent. I’d love to come chat. Scones. Tea. Clown nose & big red shoes for you. Lmk babe.”

However, Mr Morgan was confident they had met at America’s Got Talent where he said she appeared as a guest act and further claimed the singer refused to meet his three young sons because she was “too busy”.

He said: “Madam, we met on @AGT when you appeared as a guest act - but you refused to say hello to my three young sons because you were ‘too busy’. Oh, and it’s ‘Piers’ - I know, we Brit names all sound alike.”

She later responded: “Wait AGT? What’s that y’all ? I was on American Idol who TF.” She added: “He gon make me go live. Chiiiiileeee. Does he have an ig. I wanna go live with him. ENOUGH UGLY! @pierce.”

He hit back: “For the love of God.. it’s PIERS.”

Outrage erupted at a Downing Street conference when a journalist asked the PM and England’s chief medical advisor about Ms Minaj’s vaccine tweet.

The rapper had told her 22million followers on Monday: “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.”

In response, England’s chief medical advisor shot down the celebrity’s claims as “untrue” and he said it was clearly designed to “scare” people on Tuesday.

The professor said the rapper should be “ashamed” of herself for “peddling untruths” on social media.

He told a Downing Street conference on Tuesday: “There are a number of myths that fly around … some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scare. That happens to be one of them. That is untrue.

“There are a group of people with strange beliefs and that’s fine, and they make their own choices. People are adults they are allowed to make their own choices.

“But there are also people who go around trying to discourage other people from taking a vaccine which could be life-saving or prevent them from having life-changing injuries to themselves.

“And many of those people, I regret to say, I think know that they are peddling untruths but they still do it. In my view, they should be ashamed.”

By repeating the myths in public, the professor warned it “just gives them credence which they don’t need”.

Mr Johnson used the opportunity to celebrate the work of a GP in Bexley called Nikki Kanani.

He added: “I’m not as familiar with the work of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be but I am familiar with Nikki Kanani, superstar GP of Bexley.

“She will tell you that vaccines are wonderful and everybody should get them. So I prefer to listen to Nikki Kanani.”

To which, she responded with sarcasm: “Yes, hello Prime Minister, Boris, it’s Nicki Minaj - I was just calling to tell you that you were so amazing on the news this morning. And I’m actually British. I was born there. I went to university there. I went to Oxford.

“I went to school with Margaret Thatcher. And she told me so many nice things about you. I’d love to send you my portfolio of my work, since you don’t know much about me, I’m a big, big star in the United States.”

She added in writing: “Send this to the Prime Minister and let him know they lied on me. I forgive him. No one else. Only him.”
