Fauci on Nicki Minaj’s Vaccine Rant: ‘She Should Think Twice About Propagating’ Misinformation

Published: Wednesday 15th Sep 2021 by Rashad

‘Va Va Voom’ hitmaker Nicki Minaj zoomed to the top of headlines Monday (September 13) when she took to Twitter to indicate she was unvaccinated and would not be participating in events that required attendees be vaccinated until she can ‘do more research’ – a stance that’s ignited a firestorm of controversy and conversation.

While it should be clear the GRAMMY nominee never expressly indicated she was anti-vax (and even encouraged her beloved fan base, #Barbz, to continue wearing masks), her commentary – which included anecdotal references to vaccine side effects – has earned thumbs down from critics and fellow celebrities including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Piers Morgan, Joy Reid, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Meghan McCain, and others (as we previously reported).

One of the latest to weigh in on Minaj’s vaccine rant was Dr. Anthony Fauci – America’s leading epidemiologist. Look inside to see what he said:

During Minaj’s rant Monday to explain why she was not attending Met Gala, she shared a story about someone she knew who lives in Trinidad that allegedly suffered impotence and swollen testicles as a direct result of getting vaccinated.

Taking to CNN recently, Fauci tackled the claim head on.

“There’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen,” he said.

Later in the conversation, the good doctor gave a word of caution to the ‘Good Form’ performer.

“There’s a lot of misinformation, mostly on social media,” he started. “The only way we know to counter misinformation and disinformation is to provide correct misinformation and essentially debunk these kinds of claims – which may be innocent on her part. 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.”

*****

Elsewhere, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) also chimed in.

According to the CDC, “professional societies for male reproduction recommend men who want to have babies in the future get a COVID-19 vaccine as ‘there is no evidence that vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause male fertility problems.’

As of time reported, Nicki hasn’t responded to Fauci or the CDC’s weigh-in.

    • Wwwd September 15, 2021

      She has to be smarter than you if you’re the one that’s talking about her

  2. King of kingz September 15, 2021

    😌you know you that b**** when you call all this conversation worldwide 😂

    • Danny Bey September 15, 2021

      This isn’t conversation she should be proud to be having attention for. Just dumb

  3. Piers September 15, 2021

    A brain must be open to see the world in fact,
    not closed or Minaj where the brain becomes cracked,
    opinion is varied by sane and the mad ,
    but sometimes it is naive or simply just bad,
    Music is a dream what you want to see,
    everything to perfection almost a fantasy,
    But c19 is real as billions fall sick,
    not a delusion of a frankly naive chick,
    is this a launch for press a total in eruption,
    or perhaps a receding career into destruction.

    Good Nicki!

    And yall keep saying he gave her a career.

    Shawn and Camila, the only couple on the list.
    Their power.

    TGJ, dont be a clown blog and post about this.

    • Farrah’s Luggage September 15, 2021

      You’re desperate and trying to convince yourself that Camila is a star. You’re not trying to convince us. If you weren’t insecure in her star power, you wouldn’t have to post every time she’s seen walking to the bathroom.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        You’re desperate and trying to convince yourself that Normani is a star. You’re not trying to convince us. If you weren’t insecure in her star power, you wouldn’t have to post every time she’s seen walking to the bathroom.

      • Clarks0o00ñ September 15, 2021

        Somebody is mad and depressed.

        The number are there for everyone to see.
        😂😂
        I didnt make it up.
        It’s right there.
        Camila is even above shawn Mendes, the same man yall said gave her a hit. Lol

        Normani attended the met gala, where is she on the list?
        Looking like a clown in that ill fitting gown.

        Whether u like it or not, Camila will continue to be the main event.
        Keep those viral hate tweets coming.
        Ur helping my girl. 😂

      • Clarks0o00ñ September 15, 2021

        “If you weren’t insecure in her star power, you wouldn’t have to post every time she’s seen walking to the bathroom.”

        Why dont u want me to post about my girl’s achievements?
        Why dont u want me to celebrate my girl’s little achievements here and there?

        Its nobody’s fault normani dont have any achievements to her name.
        😂😂😂

        I dont need to convince anybody, the stats are there. Camila is the main event and that’s why she will continue to thrive.
        Even if she flops, she will still get back up.

        So continue with ur conspiracy theories on Twitter
        Continue lying on my girl’s name on Twitter.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        If Normani wasn’t black, she wouldn’t be given opportunity after opportunity only to flop.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        It’s simply the sympathy and pandering to the black community.

      • Farrah’s Luggage September 15, 2021

        This post has nothing to do with Normani. Clearly you’re upset at your favorite bean burrito having a performance that nobody is talking about 🙂 I wish you and her an ounce of luck.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        Your comments have everything to do with Normani because everything you say is you projecting on Camila what’s true about HER 🤣

      • Clarks0o00ñ September 15, 2021

        “Clearly you’re upset at your favorite bean burrito having a performance that nobody is talking about”

        Yes nobody is talking about Camila’s performance, that’s why dont get yet has re-entered usa spotify 200
        😂😂

        Everybody is talking about flopmani and her lipsync performance, so why didnt wild side feat. Cardi reenter spotify 200.
        I’m waiting for answers…

      • Farrah’s Luggage September 15, 2021

        Once again, nobody talked about your Bean Burritos performance. And saying it “re-entered” the spotify 200? Girl it came out 3 weeks ago. Let’s talk about how its #93 on billboard and predicted to fall off. You’re sad. Once again, you’re going to pop a vein trying to convince yourself that Camila is a star. Even if Normani flopped for the next 74 years, that’s not going to make Camila a star. That is what you’re not getting. NOTHING will make Camila a star. She will forever be known as the Cinderalla that got the lowest rating of any Cinderalla adaption EVER. Camila will be known as the girl who sold 8k with a CINDERALLA soundtrack. Camila will be known as the girl that’s dating a guy that nobody believes is into guys. Camila will be known as a flop, one hit wonder, with a crooked smile, and lopsided jaw. 🙂

    • Dc September 15, 2021

      And Camilla was mentioned yet her single almost off hot 100 but whatever makes u feel better to justify her flop song

  7. Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

    She can think and say whatever the f*** she wants. The Biden administration is practically a dictatorship and it’s only getting worse.

    • Whoops September 15, 2021

      She can say whatever she wants, but guess what, so can everybody else. So just as she had the right to say what she said, they all have the right to say what they want and criticize her for it.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        To the point where she’ll never speak up again. That’s called being silenced.

      • Whoops September 15, 2021

        She could always defend her stance. If she’s not capable of doing that, that’s her problem. But she’s free to do it. NO ONE is silencing her. Because none of these people called her out of her name, none of them threatened her, none of them cursed her out or used offensive language (unlike she did, actually). They simply responded to her opinion, with THEIR opinion, and in their cases, they cited research conducted by doctors while she cited her cousins friend who lives in a different country. You’re not oppressed because someone else embarrassed you for saying something that was uninformed and you don’t know how to respond to them.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        So they AREN’T forcing everyone to have this “vaccine” by making it mandatory to lead a normal life by being able to enter bars, restaurants, concerts, anywhere? The more people like you bow down to this, the worse it’s going to get.

      • Whoops September 15, 2021

        What are you talking about? That has nothing to do with her, or what I said. You said Nicki was being silenced. I said she’s free to respond to the criticism and support her opinion with facts. And how is she being “silenced” again? Is there someone prohibiting her from speaking that I’m just not aware of?

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        There soon will be.

  8. Don’t Buy The Hype September 15, 2021

    Yawn… they are so pressed about forcing this vaccine on folks. FACT: it isn’t a vaccine it is MRNA treatment and it is experimental. The treatment has NOT received FULL FDA approval, only Emergency Use Approval(they are not the same thing). Fact#2: C******* has a 99% recovery rate. FACT#3: There are numerous side effects being reported for these treatments. NO ONE should be mandated or forced to take this treatment if they don’t want it. Everyone has the right to control/select the best health treatment for themselves, if you feel safe taking a treatment that was rushed through trials, good for you, but don’t try to force your decisions on everyone else.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

      Exactly. Again, it’s like dictatorship.

    • Clarks0o00ñ September 15, 2021

      Hmmm.
      I’m seeing things from ur point of view.

      I hate being forced to do things.

      I myself have gotten the vaccine.
      It was my choice.

      Nobody should be forced to take any form of medical treatment ever. It’s their human right.
      Leave people alone to make decisions for themselves, if they dìe from this disease, that on them.

  9. Farrah’s Luggage September 15, 2021

    I honestly can’t believe that I was EVER a barb. Sh*t is embarrassing. The fact that she continues to make a mockery of herself and her career. I can’t tell if she’s A) genuinely losing her mind, or B) trying to cause a distraction from her husband allegedly pleading guilty a few weeks ago.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

      You are intensely acrimonious. You must be miserable in every aspect of your “life.”

      • Farrah’s Luggage September 15, 2021

        Shayla, do you have a job? A life? Any ambition at all? Or do you make it your life’s mission to follow every single comment that I post on here? That is a sad life you must be living. Nothing you say will ever get me to stoop to your level in the swamps of Louisiana.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

        So, basically just repeating what I said as you have no originality. Keep hating boo, it hurts nobody else but yourself 💯🤳🏽💋

      • Farrah’s Luggage September 15, 2021

        LOL!! You are genuinely mentally unwell. I sincerely feel badly for you, and your family. At the end of the day, you can follow every comment I write, Normani could flop for the next 88 years, and STILL nothing will change the fact that Camila is NOT a star. Get over it, weirdo.

  10. eric September 15, 2021

    The vaccine supposedly came from years of previously known data, yet based on the same data, Fauci initially said masks were ineffective. The fact is they’re still collecting data to try to answer the unknowns and that’s part of the agenda for getting more people vaxxed. A double dose was supposed to be good; then they added a third. They don’t even know how long it lasts, but chances are pretty soon they’ll be accepting a dusty two-year-old vax card from people to get into a place of business while everyone continues to blame the spread on the unvaxxed. The data shows all of us have potential to get and spread it whether you did or didn’t get the vaccine.

  11. Anne September 15, 2021

    Saying there’s ‘no evidence’ that it causes something is not the same as saying it doesn’t cause it or that there are even studies that show it doesn’t cause it. From reliable sources I’ve read that the MRNA vaccines can cause a temporary effect on make fertility or s**** count but it’sa small percentage risk and C**** can have the same effect on males. They, including Fauci, go overboard in misleading people because they don’t want to scare them away from getting the vaccine. They should be honest with people, tell them that certain risks are associated with the vaccines just like every other medicine that you take. After doing a lot of research, I decided that the potential benefit was worth the risks and took the vaccine. But I went into it with caution and open eyes, realizing that I took a risk. If Nicki wants to do more research then I can’t sat that I blame her. MRNA is a new vaccine so this is the first time that it is being given to healthy members of the society at large and scientists are still doing a lot of studies and data collection on it. The media should stop pressuring people who actually have valid concerns. Not everyone is just simply anti-vax or conspiracy theorists, some people just want to wait for more data and should have the right to do so.

  12. Dc September 15, 2021

    They tearing her ass up good keep it going

    • Munchie September 15, 2021

      Got they FOOT on her neck. 😄lol.

  13. J September 15, 2021

    I’m not the biggest Nicki fan but there’s a reason why H**/A*** has not been solved and Fauci was in charge back then! So you mean to tell me that all of the mindless sheep think that this man has all the answers?

    How dumb could we all be in 2021? See this is exactly why I deleted all social media last summer. It’s not worth it arguing about anything, especially C19. At this point I’m not telling anybody to do anything but use common sense! People want to point the finger at unvaccinated yet our own government told us to take off our masks this spring. Then guess what happened? The virus mutated!

    I swear people will follow after anything without using their own gifts of discernment. This is really mind warfare but I’m not saying anything else about it. Wear a f****** 😷.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

      J, I agree! 💯💯💯💯

    • September 15, 2021

      Word.

  14. Munchie September 15, 2021

    One thing about Cardi, when she speaks… she makes sense! 😄 Nicki Minaj is calling herself being more outspoken. 😄 But she’s looking foolish. Imo… everything else she said was cool but once she brought up the example, she actually went left.

  15. Wwwd September 15, 2021

    Put lil Wayne up
    did he tell her to take it…

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 15, 2021

      Mariah is Queen. Cry about it.

  16. Barb September 16, 2021

    Kiddos to Niki for standing up to choice and freedom!!!!
