Nicki Minaj has caused quite a stir lately over her vaccination remarks. The rapper said [her] "cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz (sic) his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. 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 (sic) decision, not bullied"

Her comments were met with rebukes from numerous health experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, who wanted to clarify that "swollen testicles" is not a side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine. The White House also offered to chat with Onika to clear up the misinformation.

The latest development in this ongoing saga is from the Health Minister of her birth country Trinidad & Tobago. Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh said no reports supporting her cousin's friend's story have been discovered in the country.

In her defense, Nicki did say she recommends people who are required by their employer to get the shot should do so. She also said she would likely get a vaccine as well because she needs to before touring.
