Rapper Nicki Minaj is getting press for all the wrong reasons. The ‘Super Bass’ rapper has been vehemently anti-vax, even claiming on social media that her cousin’s friend has “swollen testicles” after taking the Covid-19 vaccine.
As the Met Gala kicked into high gear in NYC, Minaj tweeted that she wasn’t attending because of the vaccine requirement.
“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. If I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met,” Minaj wrote. “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.”
Why is it important what one celeb thinks? With over 22 million followers, she has a great deal of influence.
