Juicy j said no to the COVID-19 vaccine, but people on social media won’t let him forget the many words he has about the use of prescription drugs.
Early Friday morning (March 26), Three 6 mafia One member wrote in a now deleted tweet: “If I were you I wouldn’t get the vaccine, I would wear a mask and take vitamins.”
While Juicy j has the right to share his anti-vax thoughts, many people on Twitter have offered the Memphis rapper a few reminders on the drug-related topic in some of his songs.
One person tweeted: “Does a zip and double cup Juicy J give any health advice?” This line is from the Juicy song “Zip and a Double Cup” by his Blue Dream & Lean album. In general, double cups contain lean – a mixture of codeine cough syrup, soda, and sometimes candy.
Another said: “People like Juicy J will take molly or ecstasy but ‘don’t trust’ a COVID vaccine. #MakeItMakeSense.” On Juicy J’s 2011 track, “Get Higher,” he raps, “Take the blunt, dip it in the skinny, then light it up / Pop a Molly, drink some orange juice, climb higher.” This is probably what the social media user was referring to.
A third person typed in, “I think it’s rich that Juicy J has trusted pharmaceutical companies for decades on various prescription opioids of choice, but vaccines are where it put its foot down,” y including three laughing emojis.
Although Juicy is criticized for his feelings on the coronavirus vaccine, he’s not the first rapper to denounce what the country hopes will give Americans a possible sense of normalcy.
According to Center for Disease Control, as of March 4, there are three types of COVID-19 vaccines: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson / Janssen. Additionally, President Biden revealed Thursday, March 25, that he wished to have administered 200 million vaccines before his 100th day in office, which would take place around April 23, according to CNBC.
