M.I.A thinks there's an equivalency between "Infowars" host Alex Jones "lying" about the 2012 Sandy Hook mass shooting and celebrities promoting COVID vaccines.
On Oct. 12, a jury ordered the controversial host to pay nearly $1 billion to the families of the Sandy Hook victims for pushing his conspiracy that the horrific mass shooting was a hoax. Following the jury's monetary decision, the "Paper Planes" rapper sounded off.
"If Alex jones pays for lying shouldn't every celebrity pushing vaccines pay too?" she tweeted, clearly referring to the COVID vaccines.
"Alex Jones lying and Pfizer lying both trending [on Twitter]," M.I.A. added. "One with penalty other without. If you have no critical thinking faculty, this is about as crazy as we should get before a nuclear war wipe [sic] out the human race."
M.I.A has a long history of going against the grain, as she's expressed her support for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
"He'd make the U.K. a strong contender in the way we go forward with AI and technology," M.I.A. said of the WikiLeaks founder in a 2019 interview with Al Jazeera, via Entertainment Weekly. "There's no doubt he'd be of more value to the U.K. as an asset than in a U.S. prison. We've seen this because he's shown he's for humanity, not profit. I don't think [the U.S. has] got it right, this big conspiracy with Assange, or for thinking Assange is the big cause of all the s*** in the world."
