Nicki Minaj’s COVID-19 vaccine misinformation tweets is not over yet as the singer claim she is taking her concerns all the way to the top having been invited by the White House to answer her questions.
On Wednesday, Sept. 15, the 38-year-old rapper tweeted that she received an invitation from the White House to discuss the efficacy and possible side effects of receiving the coronavirus vaccine. As she explained, “I think it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, I’m going.”
“I’ll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business,” the mother of one continued. “I’ll ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human. #BallGate day 3.”
In response, a White House official in a statement said: “As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.”
Minaj set twitter agog on Monday, Sept 13 when she tweeted that her cousin’s friend in Trinidad and Tobago developed a swollen testicles and his fiancée called off their wedding after taking the vaccine, “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.”
A claim that has been debunked by the Trinidad and Tobago’s health minister after investigation.
Dr Terrence Deyalsingh blasted Minaj, saying he and his team had ‘wasted so much time running down this false claim’. ‘It is as far as we know at this point in time, there has been no such reported either side effect or adverse event.
Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the US’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said there was ‘no evidence’ to back up Minaj’s remarks.
