Nicki Minaj has responded to a tweet from Philadelphia Public Heath Department’s mocking her controversial Covid tweet. In September last year, Nicki made headlines as she shared a series of allegations about the coronavirus vaccine which she explained that she was not appearing at that month’s Met Gala as they required proof of vaccination to attend. She said she would only get vaccinated “once I feel I’ve done enough research”.
She went on by saying that her cousin’s friend’s testicles became “swollen” and he “became impotent ” after getting vaccinated. Nicki Minaj was called out for the tweet by political leaders and medical experts, as impotency or engorged genitals are not listed as a side effect of Covid vaccines by any major health organizations.
The Health Department shared the screenshot of Nicki’s post mocking her of her more recent post where she wrote: “Nothing like watching someone speak confidently about something they know nothing about”.
In a deleted tweet of Nicki Minaj, she said “Philadelphia’s public health account is posting Nicki Minaj tweets for engagement. “They are attempting to shame ppl for advising others to PRAY, be COMFORTABLE AND NOT BE BULLIED. I’ve never seen a vaccine trigger this amount of shaming and fear tactics have you? #DoWeHaveAProblem.”
