Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister Denies Nicki Minaj’s Claim Vaccines Cause Swollen Testicles

Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister Denies Nicki Minaj’s Claim Vaccines Cause Swollen Testicles

Nicki Minaj has been the center of a firestorm of controversy since publicly explaining her hesitancy to be vaccinated, during which she also shared an anecdote indicating she knew someone in her home country of Trinidad who suffered from swollen testicles as a direct result of receiving the vaccine.

After Pfizer and Moderna (manufacturers of the COVID-19 vaccine), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and Dr. Anthony Fauci took to press earlier this week to debunk the claim (as we reported here), later Trinidad and Tobago health officials – namely Health Minister Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh – called a press conference to do the same.

Hear his words inside:

Devalsingh wasn’t exactly thrilled at the press conference, expressing he believed Minaj’s claim was ‘unfortunate’ and a ‘waste of time.’  Before blatantly denying her assertion, Devalsingh apologized for the delay in response – saying he “had to check and make sure that what she was claiming was either true or false.”

Later in the press conference, he said:

“We unfortunately wasted so much time yesterday running down this false claim. As far as we know, at this point in time, there has been no such reported either side effect or adverse effect,” Deyalsingh revealed. “… As we stand now, there is absolutely no reported such side effect or adverse event of testicular swelling in Trinidad or … anywhere. None that we know of anywhere else in the world.”

Nicki Minaj Claps Back at Vaccination Critique, Cites Malcolm X

Nicki Minaj Claps Back at Vaccination Critique, Cites Malcolm X

Nicki Minaj has been under fire this week after her remarks about not being vaccinated and claims about issues with the vaccines went viral.

The aftermath saw the femcee spar with the likes of Joy Reid, Piers Morgan, and more. Even the health minister in her home country of Trinidad expressed frustration with her comments.

Unfazed, Minaj has hit back at the collective furor and has drawn on the journey of civil rights leader Malcolm X to illustrate her stance.

See what we mean below…

Taking to Instagram Stories, the rapper wrote:

“Y’all gotta stop pretending to love ppl with backbones. If Malcolm X were here, he’d be asking questions and most of y’all that holler “black lives matter” and ‘protect black women’ would be telling him to shut-UP and fall in line. Y’all say these people’s names but embody the spirit of a coward.”

Sigh.

Nicki Minaj Responds To White House Denying She Was Invited to Talk To Fauci: ‘Why Would I Lie?’

Nicki Minaj Responds To White House Denying She Was Invited to Talk To Fauci: ‘Why Would I Lie?’

The Nicki Minaj vaccine drama continues.

Days after the Rap diva took to social media to indicate she would not take the COVID-19 vaccine until she did ‘more research’ (as well as to share anecdotal references to someone who allegedly suffered swollen testicles as a result of taking it), Minaj has been in the center of ongoing debate about the sphere of her influence.

With responses wielded from the likes of Joy Reid, Meghan McCain, the Center for Disease Control, global public health officials, and more (as we reported here), what started as a tweet session with her fans has turned into an all-out fiasco with the ‘Anaconda’ rapstress being painted as ‘anti-vax’ (despite her never expressly saying such).

The latest chapter of the drama comes after she took to Twitter to indicate she would take her vaccine-related questions straight to the White House after she was reportedly invited to do so.  The problem?  The White House hit back saying no invitation was ever extended.

Taking to Twitter Wednesday (September 15), Minaj told her beloved fans – affectionately called #Barbz – this:

 

After the tweet made its round, officials from the White House took to press to deny it.

“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,” a White House official expressed to NBC News.

Once Nick got word of the denial, she zoomed to Instagram to hit back.

“Do y’all think I would go on the internet and lie about being invited to the fucking White House? Like what? Do you guys see what is happening right now?” she asked.

According to the 38-year-old, her team got a call from the White House inviting her to meet with the nation’s top epidemiologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci (who previously responded to her ‘swollen testicle claims’ as we reported here), and others.  She says the drama didn’t start until she requested to do a virtual meet instead of traveling.

*****

On Thursday (September 17), Press Secretary Jen Psaki addressed the drama during a press briefing and ultimately confirmed Nicki was right.

“We don’t see this as a point of tension or disagreement. I want you all to know that we engage all the time with people who have big public platforms or profiles,” Psaki said in the video seen above. “We offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she had about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. This is pretty standard and something we do all the time. We’re not even at the point of discussing the mechanism or the formats or anything along those lines. It was simply an offer to have a conversation and an early-stage call.”

Later in the conference, Psaki said:

“In our outreach to celebrities, it follows a pretty standard process: Officials who are working on these issues engage in regular conversations, offer to answer questions — offer to do that privately sometimes, sometimes it’s done publicly.”

After Nicki Minaj ROASTED ‘Little D*ck’ Don Lemon for His ‘Rear End’ Quip, Her Fans DEMAND He Apologize

After Nicki Minaj ROASTED ‘Little D*ck’ Don Lemon for His ‘Rear End’ Quip, Her Fans DEMAND He Apologize

Don Lemon has got to be feeling sour as he takes a look at his Twitter mentions, even days after the drama between he and Rap Queen Nicki Minaj reached a boiling point.

As has been reported all week, Minaj has been in the center of global criticism due to her stance on the COVID-19 vaccine – a stance, mind you, that’s earned detraction from fellow celebrities, public health leaders, political figures, and many more.

While social analysts have been taking to their respective platforms to debate the matter (namely Nicki’s comments about stalling on getting the vaccine until she does ‘more research’), Lemon – a longtime anchor for CNN – turned heads when he said:

“The people talking about, ‘I don’t know what’s in the shot’ … You know what they get shots in nowadays? In their rear ends, they’re getting shots to make it bigger. They’re getting shots in their face. They don’t know what’s in Botox. You don’t have to listen to a minority of people who are being harmful to the greater good and who are not acting on logic, reason, and science.”

Needless to say, once the commentary got to the GRAMMY nominee’s desk she responded with an epic roast.  What’s more, her fans – affectionately called Barbz – are continuing what she started.

In addition to his on-air quip about ‘rear end shots,’ Lemon also took to Twitter to report on the Minaj/vaccine drama (as seen above).  The double reference was apparently just enough to warrant an epic roast from the rapstress.

Taking to Instagram (pictured above), Minaj said:

“Now if I start discussing what you get in YOUR rear end, I’d be wrong right? If you’re ever discussing facts with a person who’s telling you to buy, or get smthng & you go ‘ok cool, tell me more about it’ and they start insulting you, RUN. Demonizing ppl for asking questions won’t help your cause Uncle Tomiana. I’m stuck in a fkng Will Ferrell movie.

“Us: Tell me more about it

Tomi: YA KNOW WUT YA DO GET IN UR A**?!?!”

He couldn’t wait to deliver that line. He rehearsed it all night. Def has a little d***. Mad cuz the shot couldn’t fix THAT. 3-4 inches max.”

*****

The ‘Pound the Alarm’ performer must’ve done just that with her stinging Don diss, because her fans immediately swarmed his social media handles.  Their criticisms have continued well into the weekend.

See some of the latest responses below.

Azealia Banks BLASTS “Stupid” Nicki Minaj Over Vaccine Comments, Questions “Butt Injections” & More

Azealia Banks is no stranger to venting about her peers – especially Nicki Minaj. 

And the fall-out from the latter’s headline-grabbing remarks about the COVID-19 vaccine has ignited the flames anew.

Full story below…

Taking to Instagram Stories, Banks to did hold back in a lengthy lambasting of her rap rival.

She began:

“For as many Black women that have died or had their legs amputated or body parts amputated because of black market butt injects, why do we not have Nicki Minaj questioning that?”

Referencing Minaj’s music, Banks continued:

“For someone who has lyrics like, ‘Woke up, the price of coke up,’ knowing that 90 percent of the cocaine that comes into the United States is laced with Fentanyl. Like, you wanna encourage your fans to snort Fentanyl as cocaine rather than get a vaccine.”

Briefly pausing, the ‘F*ck Him All Night’ rapper hissed:

“I’ve never witnessed this woman be so f*cking stupid, and so f*cking selfish. Think about the children who are now orphans because their parents caught COVID and died before the vaccine came out.”

In concluding, she urged Minaj to “shut up.”
