Nicki Minaj tweeted on Monday night about her cousin’s hesitancy to get vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, setting off a slew of critiques that she was spreading coronavirus misinformation.
Minaj tweeted that her cousin in Trinidad, where the rapper is from, “won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen.”
