Dr. Anthony Fauci has invalidated Nicki Minaj's claims from Monday about swollen testicles being one of the side effects of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
The rapper recently revealed that she skipped the 2021 Met Gala due to its vaccine requirement and further explained how she was opting out of getting the jab until she conducts more research herself. Within her viral tweets about the vaccine, Minaj also shared a story about how one of her cousins' friends suffered from adverse side effects after being vaccinated in her native Trinidad.
"My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent," she wrote. "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."
