After rapper Nicki Minaj caused controversy over a tweet she posted regarding COVID-19 vaccine side-effects, the mainstream media immediately began to lie and misreport what she had said, offering a rare glimpse for normies into how the press twists the truth.
The spectacle began after Minaj tweeted about what happened to her cousin’s friend in Trinidad when he took the vaccine.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. 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,” wrote Minaj.
That immediately set off an absolute meltdown, both amongst Minaj’s own fans and the media, but the singer then went to war with the press as they repeatedly mischaracterized her message.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid claimed that she was “so sad you did that,” prompting Minaj to respond, “You didn’t bother to read all my tweets…imagine getting ur dumb ass on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a black woman.”
Minaj then followed up with another missive in which she stated, “The two white men sittin there nodding their heads cuz this uncle tomiana doing the work chile. How sad.”
The rapper subsequently called Reid, “A lying homophobic coon,” referring to her old blog posts which Reid dubiously claimed were the work of a mysterious “hacker”.
Other news outlets like Variety then appeared to outright fake statements Minaj had made in the past, prompting her to respond, “Never said this. Glad all my tweets were left up. On it.”
The media also lied in claiming Minaj said she wanted to avoid the Met Gala due to its vaccine requirement, which the rapper correcting them, “3 lies in a row from huge news platforms. I cited my young child as why I didn’t want to travel. But notice how NONE of them mentioned that? Ask yourself why that was.”
The Daily Beast also claimed Minaj said she was “worried about” the vaccine when she never used such words.
The hysterical hand-wringing and subsequent smears in response to Minaj merely suggesting that people should carefully research potential side-effects before taking the vaccine provided a telling insight for Minaj’s millions of fans into how the media-industrial complex savages any celebrity who dares challenge their narrative.
