Minaj tweet about vaccination consequences in Trinidad "wrong"

Nicki Minaj has to take criticism from a friend of her cousin for her tweet about the consequences of a corona vaccination. Now the Minister of Health of Trinidad and Tobago has spoken.

Port of Spain – The Minister of Health of Trinidad and Tobago has contradicted a much discussed tweet by US rapper Nicki Minaj about alleged side effects of a corona vaccination.

The 38-year-old had written on Monday that a friend of her cousin in Trinidad had swollen testicles after being vaccinated against the coronavirus and that he had become impotent. Caribbean State Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said there were no reports of such a case. “Unfortunately we wasted so much time yesterday investigating this false claim,” he said.

Minaj, who was born in Trinidad and grew up in New York, initially stated on Twitter on Monday that she would not be vaccinated for the Met gala. The fashion show in New York on Monday, where a vaccination was mandatory, she stayed away. Shortly after this tweet, the anecdote about her cousin followed. Minaj also advised her more than 22 million followers to think carefully about the decision to vaccinate and not to be intimidated.

For this, the pop star earned a lot of ridicule and criticism – even offline. Britain’s top government medical advisor, Chris Whitty, said Tuesday Minaj should be ashamed. There are people who spread untruths about vaccination even though they knew better.

Your tweet was a topic of conversation, especially in the USA, because the influential right-wing TV presenter Tucker Carlson praised him as “sensible” on his Fox News program. Carlson repeatedly saw doubts about the necessity and safety of vaccines against the coronavirus.

Minaj had recently tweeted that she would probably get vaccinated at some point. On Wednesday, she wrote that she had been invited to the White House. There she will ask questions on behalf of the people who have been ridiculed for simply being human. dpa
