MIA Stars Twitter War With Journalist!

19 March 2012

Controversial rapper MIA is again making headlines after starting a Twitter.com war with prominent American journalist Anderson Cooper.

MIA, who is a vocal supporter of Tamil rights in Sri Lanka, started things off by calling out Anderson on Twitter.com for calling her a terrorist.

She wrote, "@AndersonCooper called me a terrorist for speaking out, and expressed support for the SLgove when this was happening"

Following that with, "Someone should make @AndersonCooper watch it/film it and show the world what happens when respected journos get it wrong #killingfields"

A bewildered Anderson responded, saying, "@miauniverse you are mistaken. I never called you a terrorist. I don't even know who you are other than the lady who sang at the Super Bowl."

To which MIA retaliated, "@AndersonCooper YOU CALLED ME A LADY TAMIL TIGER when I talked about tamil civilians dying, and u printed a retraction."

"@AndersonCooper in 2009 u linked to a articl that was written about me with false info. There was a rebuttal on ur 360 site."

A now frustrated Anderson wrote, "@miauniverse by the way, I defended your finger pointing at the superbowl, so check your facts. I've no idea what you're tweeting about. @miauniverse you've gone from saying 'I wrote', 'I called you', to saying my cnn show blog had a link to an article. Big difference."

The two seem to finally make up at the end though, with MIA urging Anderson to watch the documentary Killing Fields and Anderson saying that he can understand MIA's frustration about people writing untrue things about her!

Phew! Crisis averted.
