PROFESSOR Chris Whitty has admitted that he knew Twitter beefs with American rappers were part of the job when he became chief medical officer.
Whitty, who has beef with Nicki Minaj because of her misleading tweet about her cousin’s friend’s vaccine swollen testicle wedding cancellation, confirmed that this kind of thing is simply par for the course.
He said: “Being chief medical officer isn’t just telling people how many units they can drink a week. Only the naive believe that.
“No, it’s making weekly TV appearances, it’s becoming the national face of a pandemic for coming on two years now, it’s being hassled in the street for selfies with knobheads, and of course it’s engaging in transatlantic rap battles with hip-hop queens.
“Once you’ve announced a mass youth vaccination programme just to keep school attendance up nothing’s beyond your remit. I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m putting barbiturates in the water supply to keep you all docile by Christmas.
“So yes, I have beef with Nicki. And I will of course be acting on that in the traditional fashion by recording a diss track with Ghetts, Stefflon Don and Aitch, under my rap name Prof Crizz Whizzy.
“This is all perfectly normal and what I signed up for. I expect I’ll be Christmas number one.”
