Nicki Minaj has made a slew of controversial vaccine-related tweets, leading the U.S. White House to reach out to her about vaccine safety.
. We didn’t want to engage in this objectively messy topic, but the situation has resulted in international furor — multiple global health experts and even the U.S. White House have gotten involved — so we feel we have to. It’s important to debunk false information, especially when it’s coming from someone like Minaj, who has substantial social media platforms (22.7 million Twitter followers, to be exact). After tweeting false information about the Covid-19 vaccine earlier this week and angering a long list of health officials, Nicki Minaj was
contacted by the U.S. White House, who offered to put her in touch with a doctor to discuss vaccine safety. Here’s everything you need to know about the Nicki Minaj vaccine tweets that led to this strange turn of events:It all started on September 13, or Met Gala Monday, when the rapper responded to fans who noted her lack of public appearances over the past year. Minaj reminded her followers that she has been caring for her baby — who was born in September 2020 — and was, therefore, “not risking his health to be seen.” Perfectly understandable. Commendable, even! But she didn’t stop there, sadly. Nicki Minaj went on to say that she wouldn’t be at
the Met Gala(which she has attended in previous years) because she didn’t meet the event’s vaccine mandate. “If I get vaccinated it won’t [be] for the Met,” she wrote. “It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.”They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one 🙏♥️ headtopics.com
— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ)September 13, 2021It only gets worse. Minaj, who was born in Trinidad, went on to say that her cousin in Trinidad refuses to get a vaccine because of some serious genital health issues his friend experienced after getting it. Specifically, she said her cousin’s friend “became impotent” and “his testicles became swollen” after getting the jab. She added that “his friend was weeks away from getting married, [but] now the girl called off the wedding,” — and to that, we say: what kind of person backs out of a marriage because their partner is suffering genital inflation?! Moving on. The anecdote unsurprisingly sparked a social media frenzy.
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. 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 bulliedRead more: FASHION Magazine »
