As White House officials responded to Nicki Minaj’s claims on Twitter that the COVID-19 vaccine led to an adverse health problem, the rap star later said she is being targeted for asking questions about the shot and compared the phenomenon to the Chinese regime’s censorship.Minaj, who has 22 million followers on Twitter alone, wrote on Monday that her “cousin in Trinidad” wouldn’t take the vaccine because “his friend got it [and] became impotent.” She also shared a claim from a man who said he developed a blood clot in his eye after getting vaccinated.On Wednesday, Biden administration COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci responded to her assertion and told CNN that “there’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen.” He added that Minaj “should be thinking twice” about making such claims online.For her claims, Minaj, who added that she isn’t vaccinated, said she received significant criticism and suggested she’s now the target of a “cancel culture” mob for her tweets, asserting in an Instagram video that the phenomenon is similar to the Chinese Communist Party’s restrictions on visitors and citizens.“I remember going to China and they were telling us you know, you cannot speak out against, you know, the people in power, there, etc,” Minaj said in an Instagram Live video. “Don’t y’all see that we are living now in that time where people will turn their back on you … but people will isolate you if you simply speak and ask a question,” she continued.Before that, the rap star said the White House invited her to speak with Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and Fauci about the vaccine.“The White House has invited me & I think it’s a step in the right direction. 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,” Minaj wrote in a Twitter post.But later, in the Instagram video, Minaj said that when she made the post about the White House invitation, an unnamed official called her back and appeared angry when she spoke about it publicly.Minaj also said she was barred from using her Twitter account on Wednesday, although the social media platform said her tweets didn’t violate its terms and conditions.

Nicki Minaj tweeted a Tucker Carlson clip to her 22M followers, the racist Left went insane, and I'm just over here wondering what timeline I've stumbled into
I always thought she had a strange charm.
Not so dumb now, is she?
HeadSet saysNot so dumb now, is she? How is this particular post smart? Something happens to that cunt and the author is immediately a "person of interest".
Don't the intelligence agencies have special Covid that they spray on people who speak up? You know a more potent variation?
Sharlene Rampersand is a Guardian "Reporter". getting rid of them is smart.
In the video, Carlson said, ‘It’s the last part of Nicki Minaj’s tweet that enrages them, the part where she says you should pray on it, make the decision yourself like a free human being and “don’t be bullied”. So our media and public health officials didn’t like this because they make their livings bullying people.’ Minaj responded with a bullseye emoji.
She’s an ignorant bimbo
She is claiming nonsense and then complained that she is being somehow abused.
Why is gray boy above sad? That is a hellacious set of boobs pressed against his back.
I don't know why rappers like Nicki Minaj and Pitbull are speaking more sense than our supposedly wise civic leaders, but these are not normal times and I've given up on predicting what oddity is going to happen next!Here's what Pitbull, who is Cuban American, had to say about the woke peeps who think America is the most evil and oppressive place ever.[Warning: Lot's O'Language]To whoever the f*** doesn't like the United States of America, may God bless you, but f*** you at the same time.If you don't like the United States of America, go back to the countries that we the f*** from, and you'll see how much you appreciate the United States of America.Pitbull has made similar, but a bit more polished, comments before.
I think the powers that be are trying to erase Nicki Minaj.
Whatever happened to Nicki Minaj? Did she get silenced?
DhammaStep saysWhatever happened to Nicki Minaj? Did she get silenced?Apparently the health ministry of Trinidad/Tobago spent a great deal of fruitless effort attempting to track down the subject of her tweet. Shortly after this she reportedly tweeted praise for the vaccine, and claims she didn't state any facts about the vaccine and was in fact just JAQing off.One of my favorite Triumph the Insult Comic Dog episodes is the one at that notorious Chicago hot dog stand. At some point he insults a black employee with, "You're like Nicki Minaj, minus the everything!"
Can you direct me toward your source for her "praising the vaccine" please?
Deyalsingh explained there have been no reports of such an incident as either a side effect or adverse event in the country as a result of the vaccine.“It wasted our time yesterday,” said Deyalsingh. “Trying to track down. Because we take all these claims seriously — whether it’s on social media or mainstream media. As we stand now, there is absolutely no report of testicular swelling in Trinidad — and none that we know of anywhere else in the world.”
DhammaStep saysCan you direct me toward your source for her "praising the vaccine" please?https://www.kxan.com/news/national-news/trinidad-tobago-health-minister-nicki-minajs-swollen-testicle-covid-19-vaccine-claims-are-false/ I didn't pursue this rabbit hole farther. Next step is finding out if that white house meeting happened, how it went, and what her position is now.
"absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."
The T&T official was definitely lying at the time claiming no reports of testicular swelling.
MisdemeanorRebellionNoCoupForYou says"absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."You know darn well we cannot prove the negative. Also, discussions would be more productive here if people didn't live by the credo "Absence of evidence is not absence of believing something is true anyway."DhammaStep saysThe T&T official was definitely lying at the time claiming no reports of testicular swelling. The openvaers website doesn't plot testicular pain or anything but menstrual symptoms over time. It also doesn't state what population the dataset was collected from, but I doubt it's T&T specifically.The thing about theories and speculation is, they're supposed to be PREDICTIVE tools. It's a lifelong iterative process, and every time you do it on every topic, you're programming you...
When you say Nicki tweeted praise for the vaccine, and she didn't, I also call that lying.
DhammaStep saysWhen you say Nicki tweeted praise for the vaccine, and she didn't, I also call that lying.Your standards for defining and applying basic words are as bad as your standards of evidence. For it to be lying on my part you would need to prove that 1. she did not say it and 2. that I was aware she did not say it.You're trying to use and manipulate stale and incomplete information to come to a completely VERBAL PROOF of the current disposition of Nicki Minaj and her covid controversy. You're also engaging in SIGN language- shame, insults, guilt, need to be right- which is the way women operate.The claim was that Minaj tweeted praise for people who had been vaccinated. The article cited for that claim is behind a paywall, and I don't use Twitter so can't go there to find the original tweet which sounds like it may have been deleted.Right now the constellation ...
For it to be lying on my part you would need to prove that 1. she did not say it and 2. that I was aware she did not say it.
