M.I.A. claimed that celebrities who promoted Covid jabbing should be punished for lying
The controversy seemingly erupted on Thursday, when M.I.A. tweeted: “If Alex Jones pays for lying shouldn’t every celebrity pushing vaccines pay too?”
InfoWars host Alex Jones was ordered by a Connecticut jury on Wednesday to pay nearly $1 billion to the families of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims. Jones claimed in 2012 and 2013 that the shooting was a “hoax,” and that some of the parents faked their own children’s deaths.
M.I.A. has long been skeptical of Covid-19 vaccines, declaring in 2020 that she would “choose death” over the coronavirus jab. Her latest comments came after Pfizer executive Janine Small told European lawmakers that the company didn’t test whether its vaccine prevented transmission of Covid-19 before bringing it to market.
