Nicki Minaj Dragged For Vaccine ‘Misinformation’: “You Can Do Better”

There was a barrage of criticism, with some accusing the 38-year-old of instilling anti-vaxxer sentiment, which has recently been on the rise. Just when you thought Nicki Minaj had said enough about the vaccine, she went on to say even more.

Rapper Nicki Minaj is trending on Twitter – and it’s all for the wrong reasons. The controversy began when the Anaconda hitmaker tweeted about being asked to vaccinate in order to attend the Met Gala in New York.

Minaj, on the other hand, did not attend the plush event, leading many to believe it was because she refused to receive her jab. “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,” she wrote on Twitter.

There was a barrage of criticism, with some accusing the 38-year-old of instilling anti-vaxxer sentiment, which has recently been on the rise. Just when you thought Nicki Minaj had said enough about the vaccine, she went on to say even more.

Minaj then made an odd claim about the COVID-19 vaccine: she claimed that a cousin from her native Trinidad refused to get it because a friend got it and became impotent as a result of it.

“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 bullied,” she tweeted in part.

Awkwardly for Minaj, that claim was recently debunked by the CDC. It said there is currently no evidence of any vaccines causing infertility problems in women or children.

Unfortunately for Nicki Minaj, many people were not going to let her tweets on the vaccine slide and were quick to call the star out, including MSNBC news anchor Joy Reid.

“For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives. My God sister, you can do better than that,.. As a fan, I am so sad that you did that,” Reid said on her show.
