Nicki Minaj Calls Out Reporters for Threatening Her Family in Trinidad

*Nicki Minaj is sparring with a reporter from Trinidad and Tobago who criticized the rapper for her recent comments that her cousin’s friend developed swollen testicles after taking the COVID shot.

“What @NICKIMINAJ either does not know or does not care about is Trinidad and Tobago is currently under a State of Emergency. Many business sectors are closed and have been for months on end. Vaccination is our way out,” a post read from the reporter who claims to be “from Guardian Media.”

Nicki retweeted the post and wrote, “You are the one harassing my family???!!?!???! SPEAK UP B4 I BEGIN. I KNOW YOU SEE THIS!!!!!!”

Minaj also took to her Instagram Story to share direct messages that her family received from the woman.

“I was hoping to speak with you for an article,” one message said. “I know you are hesitant to speak with us, but just so you know, CNN is in the country looking for you. And when they find you, they won’t hesitate to reveal where you live or where your gf lives…anything and anyone who is tied to you.”

“If you speak to me, we won’t reveal those details,” the final message said. “So, what do you say?”

“They’re forcing my family to have to hide out. This is what speaking up looks like. Millions of poor people are treated this way by the ppl you think are the ‘good guys.’ This is unconscionable,” Nicki wrote in one post. She continued, “Threatening my family in Trinidad won’t bode well for you… B**** your days are f*cking numbered you dirty hoe.”
The situation comes two days after Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister of Health Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh slammed Minaj’s claims about swollen testicles. In a press conference, Deyalsingh explained that they “had to check and make sure that what she was claiming was either true or false.”

“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 said. “… 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.”

Deyalsingh said his team wasted time investigating the rapper’s report about her cousin’s friend.

“What was sad about this, is that it wasted our time yesterday, trying to track [it] down. Because we take all these claims seriously, whether it’s on social media or mainstream media,” he said.

Trinidad & Tobago Health Minister Addresses Nicki Minaj Claims Vax Cause Swollen Testicle

Nicki Manaj says Twitter limited her account after recent tweets about Covid-19 vaccine  

'The White House has invited me & I think it's a step in the right direction,' Minaj, 38,  tweeted Wednesday following an immense amount of controversy on social media.

'Yes, I'm going. I'll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business. I'll ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human. #BallGate day 3' 

However, a White House official told PEOPLE that the administration reached out to Minaj for public health education over the phone rather than an in-person visit. 

Rapper Nicki Minaj says she was 'invited' to the White House after she posted a flurry of misinformation tweets earlier this week about vaccine side effects.

'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,' the official says.

The phone call invitation comes a few hours after Minaj was supposedly placed in 'Twitter jail' after violating the tech giant's rules on sharing misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine. 

'I'm in Twitter jail y'all. They didn't like what I was saying over there on that block,'  the Superbass rapper shared an Instagram story on Wednesday. 

As of 10pm Wednesday, the rapper's account appears to be active, but she has not tweeted for more than three hours. 

Twitter said Minaj's tweets were not in violation to the platform's policy, but did not comment on whether her account had been frozen.

Minaj's flurry of tweets about vaccines began with a post regarding the Met Gala in New York on Monday, which she did not attend due to a requirement which stated all attendees must be vaccinated. 

'They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won't for the Met. It'll be once I feel I've done enough research. I'm working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one,' wrote Minaj.  

While Minaj would have been banned from attending the Met because she is unvaccinated, she said she was also forced to skip it as she had tested positive for COVID-19 while prepping for the MTV VMAs. 

Minaj went on to tweet to her 22 million followers that the vaccine had left a cousin's friend in Trinidad 'impotent' and with 'swollen' testicles, causing his fiancée to cancel their wedding. 

'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,' the rapper followed up.  

Minaj has faced huge backlash for her tweets; from celebrities, doctors, and even world leaders. 

She was aggressively responding to her critics on Twitter until shortly before she claimed her account had been suspended.

Dr Anthony Fauci responded to Nicki Minaj's vaccine concerns, saying there's 'no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen.'

'There is a lot of misinformation, mostly on social media. And the only way to counter mis- and disinformation is to provide a lot of correct information and essentially debunk these kinds kinds of claims,' Fauci told CNN on Tuesday when asked whether the vaccines could impact reproductive health. '  

Fauci said that Minaj's controversial post 'may be innocent on her part.' 

'I'm not blaming her for anything, but she should be thinking twice about propagating information that really has no basis, except for a one-off anecdote. That's not what science is about,' Fauci said.

The CDC has said: 'There is no evidence that vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause male fertility problems.' 

Minaj has not backed down from her controversial tweets, and insists that she does not discourage anyone from getting vaccinated, saying she wants to do her own 'research' and is opposed to forcing vaccines on those who don't want them.'

Even British Prime Minister Boris Johnson weighed in, condemning Minaj's comments and telling reporters he would rather listen to NHS England's top GP Nikki Kanani about the 'wonderful' vaccine than the rapper.

Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh has addressed residents concerns after Nicki Minaj claimed that a friend of her cousin’s testicle got swollen due to the vaccine.

Monday (September 13th) gave birth to the much-awaited 2021 Met Gala. The star-swarmed red carpet gave many celebrities a time to shine, but before the event even began, fans started wondering why Nicki Minaj wouldn’t be making an appearance. The reason for canceling her VMAs appearance the night before also became a hot topic.
Barbz swarmed Nicki’s Twitter with continuous questions about her well-being, and Nicki replied, confirming that she did contract COVID while she was rehearsing for her VMAs performance and shooting a music video. The “Right Thru Me” singer also revealed that she didn’t attend the Met Gala because the event required you to be vaccinated.
In one of her Tweets, Nicki disclosed that Drake had contracted COVID even while being vaccinated and that she would consider getting vaxxed after she’s done enough research. She then went on into greater detail, opening up about some saddening news involving her cousin’s friend back in Trinidad. She revealed how the vaccine made him impotent and also resulted in swollen testicles.
The Trinidadian-born rapper immediately received backlash as fans claimed that she was spreading misinformation, as the virus has never been linked to causing any fertility problems in the past. Several fellow celebrities and other prominent people bad-mouthed the rapper as the news spread. In contrast, the initial tweets have not been taken down by Twitter, who claimed, “The Tweets referenced are not in violation of the Twitter Rules.”


T&T Health Minister Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh

The uproar left the Trinidadian government with no choice but to release a statement on the matter a day later, on September 14th. The Health Officer of Trinidad and Tobago, Terrence Deyalsingh, held a press conference (T&T COVID-19 UPDATE), where he addressed the matter.

“The [reason] we could not respond yesterday in real-time to Ms. Minaj is that we had to check and make sure that what she was claiming was either true or false,” he began.

“We did and unfortunately we wasted so much time yesterday running down this false claim. It is as far as we know at this point in time, there has been no such reported either side-effect or adverse event and what was sad about this is that it wasted our time yesterday trying to track it down,” he added.

“We take all these claims seriously, whether it’s on social media or mainstream media. As we stand now, there is absolutely no [reported side-effect] or adverse event.”

After hearing the news, fans were left with mixed feelings.

“I mean I don’t think y’all even get the big picture… it’s misinformation and it’s dangerous to put information that’s not conclusive out there especially in the climate we are in now,” one fan commented.

“No, but this is why it is so bad to spread false information!! Research first!! I’m not saying get the vaccination that’s personal but don’t go out here spreading 2nd or 3rd hand no factual information or stories it’s dangerous,” another added.

Others were still left confused about what she meant in her initial tweets, which have continued to cause a massive debate on social media.
