Sinead O’Connor thinks Arsenio Hall‘s lawsuit against her is a laughing matter.

A day after being slapped with a $5 million libel suit by Hall over comments she made about him on Facebook, the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer took to — yup — Facebook on Friday to scoff at his “laughable threats.”

In a post titled “REGARDING ARSE-INIO HALL’S LAUGHABLE THREATS,” O’Connor wrote, “I’m more amused than I’ve ever dreamed a person could be and look forward very much to how hilarious it will be watching him trying to prove me wrong.”

In a Facebook post on Monday, O’Connor claimed that Hall provided Prince, who died April 21 at age 57, with drugs. She also claimed that Hall had “spiked” her.

Hall denies the allegations, and filed suit Thursday.

O’Connor’s Facebook message on Friday continued, “I’m also very happy to notice that the DEA have taken me seriously enough to be thoroughly questioning all of Prince’s friends and aides from the last thirty years as to his KNOWN history of hard drug use and where he obtained his drugs. I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall. He can suck my dick. That is if he isn’t too busy sucking someone else’s dick. : )”

Prince was found unresponsive in the elevator of his Paisley Park, Minnesota, home a week after reportedly being treated for an overdose of the opioid painkiller, Percocet. He reportedly had painkillers in his possession at the time.

The musician’s staff contacted addiction specialist Howard Kornfeld the day before his death. Kornfeld, based in Mill Valley, California, was due to arrive the day after Prince’s death. His son, Andrew Kornfeld, arrived at Paisley Park on April 21 to discuss treatment with Prince, and was on hand when the “Little Red Corvette” singer was found unresponsive.
