She plans to dress up for the occasion to connect with President Joe Biden’s Administration, even though the meet is scheduled to be remote.
“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.
She then buttoned the tweet that her public thoughts on the vaccine has amounted to “#BallGate.”
MINAJ: JAB CAUSED ‘IMPOTENCE’
On Monday Minaj tweeted that a cousin in Trinidad refused to get jabbed because his friend’s testicles were affected after he received a Covid-19 vaccine.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent,” she posted.
“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.”
SWOLLEN TESTICLES, NO MET BALL
She claims it was the main reason she was a no-show at Monday’s 2021 Met Gala because the event mandated that all attendees be inoculated against COVID-19.
“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met,” Minaj tweeted.
“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.”
The tweets drew criticism directly from The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Asked point-blank by CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday if vaccines cause reproductive issues, he responded with a “resounding no.”
“There’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen,” he added.
TRINIDAD & TOBAGO REBUKE
Her vaccine skepticism drew a striking rebuke from Trinidad & Tobago Health Minister Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh.
He claimed the county’s health service had “wasted time” trying to track down the rapper’s claim.
Deyalsingh sounded off on Twitter: “One of the reasons we could not respond 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.
“At this time, there has been no such reported either side effect or adverse event,” Minister Deyalsingh added.
“And what was sad about this, is that it wasted our time yesterday trying to track down, because we take all these claims seriously, whether it’s on social media or mainstream media.”
He submitted there was “absolutely no reported such side effect or adverse event in Trinidad or I dare say, none that we know of, anywhere else in the world.”
FOX News Tucker Carlson on Wednesday lauded Minaj as “one of the bravest persons in the United States.”
The rapper then tweeted she could agree with Carlson after one responder called him a “white nationalist.”
“Right. I can’t speak to, agree with, even look at someone from a particular political party,” she sarcastically answered.
“I’m in Twitter jail yall. 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,” she posted on her Instagram account.
She later posted a video testimonial stating: “Look at what they just did.
“I will never use Twitter again.”
She added: “First of all, I didn’t give facts about any vaccine. I didn’t give any facts about anything.”
The social media company denied Minaj was ever suspended or pushed off.
“Twitter did not take any enforcement action on the account referenced,” a spokesperson told Vulture.
Meanwhile, TV host Jimmy Kimmel challenged his audience to try to track down the friend of Minaj’s cousin.
“This tweet spreads like crazy – everybody’s posting which has to be great news for Nicki’s friend’s cousin,” Kimmel said.
“Now he’s famous.”
