CNN reported on the 16th (local time) that famous American pop star Nicki Minaj claims that the coronavirus vaccine causes sexual dysfunction.
As an influencer with more than 22 million Twitter followers, he even went to the White House in the United States when his remarks became controversial.
Minaj, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, tweeted: “My cousin, who lives in Trinidad and Tobago, refuses to get vaccinated because he developed erectile dysfunction, including swollen testicles.”
He added, “I will make a decision on whether to vaccinate after thoroughly researching the COVID-19 vaccine.”
His writing has been widely retweeted over 110,000 times.
Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, came out in person when the article caused a stir. “There is no evidence that it will happen, and there is no reason to imagine that it will happen,” he dismissed. “There is a lot of wrong information on social media,” he added.
The White House also offered Minaj a phone call with an expert to help answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Trinidad and Tobago’s Health Minister Terrence Deyangsing said, “There have been no reports of such side effects in our country.”
After his tweet caused a lot of controversy, Minaj said, “I plan to get vaccinated.”
