Racism You’re just a stroppy little piece of work - Piers Morgan blasts Nicki Minaj

Piers Morgan has weighed in on the Nicki Minaj vs Taylor Swift Twitter exchange that occurred on Tuesday when Minaj complained about not getting an MTV Video of the Year nomination.

In an op-ed written for the Daily Mail, Morgan denounces Minaj for her tweets in an article titled, "Don’t play the race or skinny cards, Ms Minaj - you’re just a stroppy little piece of work whose video wasn’t as good as Taylor Swift’s."

Morgan responded to the series of tweets Minaj wrote Tuesday, expressing her anger that "Anaconda" was not nominated for Video of the Year.

Minaj said she would have been nominated if she was a different "kind" of artist and that "other" girls with videos impacting culture get nominated.

According to Morgan, Minaj believes the reasons she was snubbed were "she's a black and  not skinny enough." "The target of her tempestuous tirade was self-evidently Taylor Swift, who did get nominated in the Video of the Year category, along with 8 other nominations, and is both white and skinny," Morgan writes.

When Swift confronted Minaj about her complaints, Morgan says Minaj lied when she insisted the tweets weren't about Swift at all. Morgan then chastises "Black Twitter" for "collectively leap[ing]" on Swift causing her to be "eaten alive." Morgan was himself criticized on Twitter yesterday after tweeting #ALLLivesMatter in response to the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag.

"I have every sympathy with Taylor, who did absolutely nothing wrong," said Morgan. "And I have no sympathy with Nicki Minaj, who emerges as a whiny brat that just doesn’t like losing."

"Her charges of racism and big-bodyism are frankly laughable when you consider that three of the five nominations for Video of the Year are black artists," continued Morgan. "And one of them is Beyonce, whose own body is far more aligned to the Minaj school of physical beauty than Taylor Swift’s."

Morgan also recounted a story when Minaj refused to meet his sons when she performed on America's Got Talent, referring to the singer as a "stroppy little piece of work."

He said that while she is talented, playing the "race card" is a "cheap piece of faux outrage deliberately designed to stir up unnecessary racial tension where it shouldn’t exist."
