Nicki Minaj made waves after she revealed she would not be attending the 2021 Met Gala over its Covid-19 vaccine mandate, eliciting a response from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who offered his own take on the issue.

Minaj skipped the coveted event — held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City — citing vaccine mandate as the issue. The ‘Anaconda’ hitmaker posted a lengthy tweet sharing her problem with her close to 23 million followers on the micro-blogging site. The 38-year-old rapper also posted a tweet claiming one of her cousin’s friends became impotent after getting the vaccine. Her decision to not attend the Met Gala 2021 came a day after she skipped the MTV VMAs 2021 held in the same city.

Minaj raised eyebrows when she tweeted that she wasn't willing to get a double shot of the vaccine in order to attend the gala. "They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won't for the Met," she wrote. "It'll be once I feel I've done enough research. I'm working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one".



 

In another tweet, Minaj said her cousin became impotent and had "swollen" testicles after taking the vaccine. "My cousin in Trinidad won't get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen," she wrote. "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."



 

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the UK Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty were asked about Minaj's tweets during a recent press conference about Britain's winter Covid-19 plans. "There are a number of myths that fly around. Some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scare," Whitty responded. "That happens to be one of them. That is untrue..."

Whitty declared that there were several Covid-19 vaccine myths that were "untrue, full stop". He said some people had "strange beliefs" and condemned those with influence for discouraging others in society from getting inoculated. "There are also people that go around trying to discourage other people from taking a vaccine which could be life-saving or prevent them from having life-changing injuries to themselves," he continued. "Many of those people, I regret to say, I think know they are peddling untruths but they still do it. In my view, they should be ashamed."

PM Johnson subsequently added that he was "not as familiar with the work of Nicki Minaj as I should be." He then referenced a doctor with a similar name to Minaj's who had told him vaccines were "wonderful." Minaj responded to the British leader, joking that she enjoyed his accent and that she "guessed" his comments were against her.



 

She then released a voice note of herself imitating a British accent, saying she forgave only the PM for his discussion on her reluctance to get the jab.



 

BBC journalist Laura Kuennsberg reacted to Minaj's tweet by mocking the status quo in 2021. However, she was shut down by the 'Bang Bang' hitmaker almost immediately. "Yes, 2021, when jack asses hang on to my every tweet but can't decipher sarcasm & humor, and can't read. Go away dumbo," she wrote.



 

British TV personality Piers Morgan also slammed Minaj, calling her the "rudest little madam" and accusing her of "peddling lies which is costing lives." In response, Minaj said she had never met Morgan, but he disagreed.



 

"Madam, we met on @AGT when you appeared as a guest act - but you refused to say hello to my three young sons because you were 'too busy.' Oh, and it's 'Piers' - I know, we Brit names all sound alike," he tweeted. However, Minaj said he was lying and would never say no to taking pictures with children. She went on to brand him a "stupid piece of shit."



 

Friends and fans of Minaj fervently backed her on social media. "They Took @NickiMinaj words and straight-up twisted them up.....The Media for you!" recording artist King Roy tweeted. "At this point, Nicki Minaj should host Apple's live-stream event. They'll get way more coverage," Hip Hop group Young Money quipped.

"So @NICKIMINAJ simply asks everyone to pray and think before taking the vaccine. Meanwhile, Joy Reid and her radical left ilk, condemn and demonize Nicki for simply sharing her truth. These radical leftists absolutely disgust me and many other rational Americans. FATWO!" singer-songwriter Travis Tritt commented.

"Nicki Minaj can’t be canceled, no matter how many times y’all try it," a fan added.
