We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
Rapper Nicki Minaj skipped the Met Gala because guests were required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry.
“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated it won’t [be] for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research,” the “Starships” singer tweeted. “I’m working on that now.”
When one fan remarked that the vaccine doesn’t prevent people from contracting the virus, just from getting “serious symptoms,” Minaj responded that she had already been infected and “had the exact same symptoms as ppl with the damn vaccine.”
She also claimed that her cousin’s friend became impotent after getting vaccinated, which has led to her wariness of the shot.
“His testicles became swollen,” she continued. “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.”
Democratic New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was torched online for showing up at the swanky event in a white dress that read “tax the rich,” as she was surrounded by the Hollywood elite showing off their extravagant ensembles to photographers.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attending the $35,000-a-ticket #MetGala in a Brother Vellies gown blaring “Tax the Rich” is a complicated proposition,” tweeted New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Freidman.
“@AOC is making the most of her $30,000 Met Gala ticket with all her Hollywood elite friends,” Senator Marsha Blackburn commented.
What makes @AO a bigger fraud,” questioned Donald Trump Jr. “The “tax the rich” dress while she’s hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country?”
Tickets to the Met Gala cost $35K 😂
I’m starting to think AOC is just an elaborate Republican prank https://t.co/5kYVCfRLHh

Rod Stewart and his son Sean avoided trial for a 2019 assault, after opting to seek a plea agreement in a Florida court.
The Stewarts were arrested on Dec. 31, 2019, for battering a security guard who would not allow their group to enter a New Year’s Eve party at a Palm Beach hotel. When the security guard told Sean to back up, the younger Stewart shoved him, and his father, Rod, followed up with a punch to the rib cage.
Police said witnesses and security footage revealed that the Stewarts were the “primary aggressors” of the incident, for which they could both face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Former “The Talk” host Sharon Osborne isn’t planning to return to television any time soon, after exiting the daytime show a few weeks after a fiery exchange with co-host Sheryl Underwood.
“Right now, it’s not a safe place to be. Because the slightest thing, the slightest word and you’ve pissed off half the nation,” she remarked. “I don’t want to put myself up for that grief, I really don’t.”
Osbourne vocally supported Piers Morgan after he left his British morning talk show over comments he made about Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Though she said that she did not agree with his statements, an argument erupted with Underwood over whether Morgan’s criticism of Markle was racist.
“It was a freedom of speech matter. It was pure freedom of speech,” she said in an interview. “A journalist friend of mine who wrote something that people didn’t like and then a few crazies out there, some thugs go – “you must be racist, that’s why you’re saying it” – about my friend Piers. It’s like, come on.”
Barstool Sports founder Dave Protnoy said that singer Normani’s highly sexualized performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards highlighted that criticism against his website is unfair.
“This is good. Barstool bad,” he captioned above a video of the “Wild Side” singer straddling a restrained woman in her performance Sunday.
“I just want people to know, this is on VH1 right now, just like cable TV, anyone can watch this,” commented over the video. “People say Barstool’s too raunchy, like, that, you know, we’re sexist, chauvinist pigs, can’t let people see it, too over the top, smokeshows, but this girl, who’s getting like face f—ed, and scissoring, right now just on VH1, this is cool.”
