Things are getting testy between singer Nicki Minaj and Dr. Anthony Fauci. After the singer cautioned her fans that a COVID-19 vaccination could have negative effects on a person’s nether regions, Fauci slammed Minaj for “propagating” misinformation. Pot, meet kettle.
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz 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 decision, not bullied

Minaj triggered Fauci when she tweeted Monday that a friend of her cousin in Trinidad had swollen testicles post-vaccine and became impotent as a result. Because of his impotence, his fiancée called off their wedding. This prompted Minaj to tell her followers to “pray on (the vaccine) and make sure you’re comfortable with your decision, not bullied.”
In response to the singer’s tweet, Dr. Fauci appeared on CNN Tuesday and was asked whether any of the COVID-19 vaccines could have a negative effect on male or female reproductive systems. “The answer to that, is a resounding no. There’s no evidence that it happens — nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen, so the answer to your question is no,” said Fauci.
President Biden’s chief medical advisor then went on to caution Minaj about tweeting misinformation: “She should be thinking twice about propagating information that really has no basis except a one-off anecdote, and that’s not what science is all about.”
Ha! Talk about balls! Now Fauci wants to talk about someone spreading propaganda. He must not have mirrors in his house…
Minaj has previously confirmed that she is not vaccinated, though swollen testicles had nothing to do with her decision.
