I could be off a couple of years, because my sister in law struggles to hear in the laundromat where the story was told.
The story that should, but WONT go away.
Last week, Nick Minaj on Twitter alleged her cousin in Trinidad refuses to get a vaccine because his friend became impotent after being vaccinated.” His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding,”
The Trinidadian government went looking for the man with ginormous testies and couldn’t find him. Last week the Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said the story was false.
The story went INTERNATIONAL with senior US and British coronavirus officials condemning the claims. This story generated from a tweet, has appeared in Newspapers all over the globe.
A good publicist would have let the story die, as it could damage her image. Minaj is a citizen and is allowed to have an opinion.
Ms. Minaj has had many public feuds, with high profile people through the years. The problem is, she attacked the press, which is like throwing gasoline on a fire. She is taunted by the press who want her to appear on their news shows to prove her story. Tucker Carlson of Fox News, who hasn’t had a good relationship with Black Women, wanted her on his show. She has become the butt of the joke on late night TV. She was subject of some of the Jokes at the Emmy’s on Sunday.
She has found support from conservative anti-vaxxers. Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz Tweets (tongue in cheek) Nicki should run on Donald Trumps ticket in 2024. Some of her fans have picketed at the CDC in Atlanta.
Again, this is a story that should have died. She doesn’t seem to support vaccination, she is allowed. She may have created at story that got away from her. Unlike the rest of us, she has a following of nearly 23 million people. If the weather is good, a tweet from CityFella may generate a few hundred views.
There are some who believe, her actions might be a distraction. Last week, her husband, Kenneth Petty plead guilty for his failure to register as a sex offender in California.. He faces up to 10 years in prison. By all accounts, she is love, she has known Petty since she was 16. The two knew each other before the fame and even dated way back when, it’s reported that he was one of her first real relationships. They have a son.
Perhaps its the ultimate sacrifice, love.
