Rapper Nicki Minaj ignited a firestorm of criticism on Monday when she expressed hesitancy to get the coronavirus vaccine to attend the upcoming Met Gala.

In her post, Minaj said she will not comply with the upcoming Met Gala’s alleged vaccine mandate until she does “enough research.”

“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. 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,” she tweeted. “In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one.”

Further igniting controversy, Minaj said that a friend of her cousin’s back in her native country of Trinidad allegedly experienced impotency after receiving the coronavirus vaccine.

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent,” she tweeted. “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.”

In another tweet, Minaj claimed the rap megastar Drake told her he got infected with the coronavirus after receiving the vaccine. Drake has yet to comment. Minaj received an outpouring of criticism, the most notable of which came from Joy Reid of MSNBC.

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid told her audience Monday on her show “The ReidOut” that rapper Nicki Minaj was putting people “in the position of dying” with her anti-COVID-19 vaccine tweets.

Reid said, “You are not going quit your job unless you want to be broke and poor and sit home with no money and do your research on Tik Tok and watch Tik Toks all day of other unvaccinated people. You are going to get that shit. It’s going to happen because people are going to have to face between being broke and being vaccinated. In the end, I’m done hand-holding people too. I’ve reached my limit. I’ve reached my limit. I’m not begging anyone else.”

She added, “And people like Nicki Minaj, I have to say this. You have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers. Ok? I have two million followers. You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God, sister, you could do better than that. You got that platform. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing that you got that, that people listen to you. And they listen to you more than they listen to me, for you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh my God. As a fan, as a hip hop fan, as somebody who is your fan, I am so sad that you did that. So sad that you did that, sister. Oh, my God.”
