In what the general media is referring to as #ballgate, New York Rapper Nicki Minaj took to Instagram Live on Wednesday night to rant about being suspended from Twitter for a post about the effects of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Nicki Minaj claimed her cousin’s friend in Trinidad suffered from swollen testicles after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine. Shortly afterward, Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said the claim was false.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President said Minaj should think twice about spreading propaganda.
“I’m not blaming her for anything — but she should be thinking twice about propagating information that really has no basis as except a one-off anecdote, and that’s not what science is all about.”
The currently unvaccinated rapper claims at some point she could not post on Twitter.
“I’m in Twitter jail y’all. They didn’t like what I was saying over there on that block, I guess. My poll was gonna be ‘Asking questions is OK/I like being fking dumb.’ Then boom. Can’t tweet,”
Twitter has released a statement claiming they never blocked Minaj.
“Twitter did not take any enforcement action on the account referenced.”
Minaj also claimed on Twitter to have been invited to the White House however the White House claims to only have offered her a phone call.
