Nicki Minaj Has Sparked Controversy Over Vaccine Comments

Nicki Minaj revealed Monday she would not be attending this year’s Met Gala due to the event’s vaccination mandate.

"They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met," Nicki tweeted. "It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now."

During the discourse on Twitter about her hesitancy towards receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, Nicki said a friend of her cousin in Trinidad had his fiancée call off their wedding when he allegedly became impotent after getting the shot.

"My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen," she wrote. "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."

Nicki later said that she’ll likely get vaccinated later on. Her story, however, has already caused an influx of memes on Twitter and on talk shows like Colbert and Kimmel.
