Nicki Minaj Goes Viral for Claiming Covid Shot Swells Testicles

Posted on

In a very controversial move, rapper Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter earlier this week to explain why she wasn’t attending the Met Gala.

As part of her explanation, she tweeted, “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 also added, “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent.” She went on to say, “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.”

UK and Trinidad health officials, as well as Dr. Anthony Fauci, have refuted Nicki Minaj’s ‘false claim’ that Covid shots cause swollen testicles.

Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh, health minister of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, said Minaj’s tweet late Monday to her more than 22 million followers sent the ministry on a hunt to find the man she said became impotent and lost his fiance over the side effects.

“Unfortunately we wasted so much time yesterday running down this false claim,” Deyalsingh said. “As far as we know at this point in time, there has been no such reported either side effect or adverse event. And what was sad about this is that it wasted our time yesterday trying to track down because we take all these claims seriously, whether it’s on social media, or mainstream media.”

Deyalsingh said that there hasn’t been a single reported case of testicular swelling following Covid vaccine shots in Trinidad and that health officials weren’t aware of any cases “anywhere else in the world.”

Chief White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “There is no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen,” when asked if any of the U.S.-approved vaccines affected fertility in men or women.
