M.I.A. and CNN's Anderson Cooper recently had a run in on Twitter over a 2009 article from the Anderson Cooper 360 website that called the rapper a "Lady Tamil Tiger" and suggested that she supports terrorist groups.
"@AndersonCooper called me a terrorist for speaking out , and expressed support for the SLgov when this was happening," tweeted the "Bad Girls" rapper earlier this week.
Cooper then cheekily tweeted back that she was mistaken, and wrote: "I never called you a terrorist. I don't even know who you are other than the lady who sang at superbowl."
After a few clarifying tweets, it came out that the article in question was not actually written by Cooper, and was only linked (with M.I.A.'s rebuttal) on his show's website. The host tweeted that M.I.A. should check her facts, and reminded her that he defended her "finger pointing" at the Superbowl.
