For the record, Nicki Minaj is not a doctor.
She is not a scientist.
But she doesn’t have a medical background or experience of any kind, but, hey… she knows someone who can’t have an erection anymore and she thinks it’s because the guy took the COVID-19 vaccine!
It could also be because he had a sexually transmitted disease.
On Monday evening, Minaj tweeted the following:
My cousin in Trinidad didn’t get vaccinated because his friend got it and became incapacitated. His testicles swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, and now the girl canceled the wedding.
So just pray for him and make sure you are comfortable with your decision, not to be bullied.
There is, of course, no evidence that any of the Covid vaccines can cause these side effects.
It’s possible, far, far, far, far away, that this random guy has an STD or maybe even testicular cancer and the singer is spreading some serious information by suggesting otherwise.
This was just the beginning of Nikki’s journey down a dark and misleading path today when it comes to a vaccine.
Minaj, you see, did not attend the 2021 MET Gala in New York City because the event required everyone in attendance to be vaccinated.
“I have a baby without nannies during COVID. Who’s angry? Don’t risk his health to be seen. You yourself,” Minaj tweeted as an explanation for her absence, which would have been fine had you just stopped there.
Want to be extra careful about your unvaccinated baby?
Avoid the crowds, for sure. Especially the crowds at some of the fancy fashion events that are only there for celebrities to show how much they can spend on ridiculous sets.
After another fan posted that he didn’t want Nikki to risk “catching” Covid at the party, the artist responded:
Love u babe. I was getting ready for vmas and then I shot a video and guess who got COVID? Do you know what it is to not be able to kiss or hold your little one for more than a week?
“A child used to only his mother?”
One would think that Minaj bumped into Covid that would inspire her to get the vaccine – but one clearly could be wrong.
“They want you to be vaccinated for the Metropolitan,” Minaj added.
If you get vaccinated, it won’t happen [be] for the Met. That would be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on it now.
“Meanwhile, baby, be safe. Put on the mask with two strings holding your head and face. Not this loose-fitting mask.”
Fortunately, you see, Minaj encourages at least the use of the strict mask.
However, many of her followers couldn’t help but wonder what kind of research she’s doing when a vaccine is approved by the FDA.
It certainly appears that Nikki’s research consists of talking to people in Trinidad and Tobago… who pass on cryptic information about strangers who have nothing to do with taking any kind of shot.
On Twitter, several doctors reached out to Minaj and offered to give legitimate advice.
“Nikki loved you to death, but you were wrong,” wrote one fan, adding in direct and accurate terms:
“The vaccine significantly reduces the chances of hospitalization and serious illness.
“Please, I beg, let us stay educated about this and trust the scientists and clinicians who have worked tirelessly to help us end this.”
Sounds like great advice to us
Will Nicki Minaj take it? Or at least stop using her platform to speak negatively about the safest and most effective way to end this pandemic once and for all?
Unfortunately, we doubt it.
She doesn’t seem to have the best judgment.
